Monitor: You should use a glucometer, and check your blood sugar at least once a day. Take your medicines as directed, stay on your diet, and if your blood sugar goes over 160, call your doctor.

Adherence : Test your blood sugars and take your medication as directed. If you have unusually high blood sugars, call your doctor before it becomes a crisis. If you have type 1 diabetes, call your doctor if you also have urine ketones.

Eat right & exercise: And take medications as directed. Work w/your doc to find affordable medication(s) w/least side effects that won't drop your sugars excessively causing hypoglycemia (bad for your brain). But start by eating healthy. Study low glycemic index foods which have less tendency to spike your sugars. Typically this means non-starchy veggies. Avoid juices but eat fruit. Don't forget your BP & cholesterol.
