Manage your Diabetes 

If you have diabetes or are at high risk of developing diabetes, it is important that you monitor your blood sugar level and keep it in a healthy range. To keep your blood sugar in a healthy range:

  • Eat a healthy diet that follows Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Be physically active most days of the week
  • Monitor your blood glucose level
  • If your doctor prescribes medication for your diabetes, take it regularly, as instructed
  • If you drink alcohol, talk with your doctor, dietitian or diabetes specialist about your alcohol consumption.
