Diabetes-like symptoms: Treatments Inroduction

At this time, there is no cure for diabetes, but with careful, medically monitored management, diabetes can be successfully managed, minimizing complications and allowing people with diabetes to live a normal active life. Treatment of all types of diabetes includes regular monitoring of blood sugar levels, following a well-balanced healthy diet and regular aerobic exercise program recommended by your health care provider. It is also important not to smoke and to follow your health care provider's advice on preventing, monitoring, and treating any coexisting medical conditions, such as hypertension and high cholesterol.

Type 1 diabetes is always managed with injected insulin. A new treatment that may be an option for some people with type 1 diabetes is pancreatic islet transplantation. This experimental surgery transplants insulin-producing beta cells from a donor into the pancreas of a person with type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is often managed with oral antidiabetic drugs, such as glipizide, glyburide, and metformin. Pregnant women with gestational diabetes may be treated with glyburide, and some people with type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes may need insulin injections.
