Diabetes: Hi, first you need to get a Primary Care Physician to formulate a management plan which is suitable for you and the type of Diabetes you have. Then you got to follow your doctor's advice to get your sugar to an acceptable level before and after meal. Also you should adjust your diet to a lower carb and fat diet, try to lose weight and also increase your daily activity, good luck

Consult physician: Diabetes can only be diagnosed by a healthcare professional after a blood test is performed. It is possible that a person experiences some symptoms that resemble diabetes, but those symptoms might be other illnesses or medication side effects.
