Expected: If you have good control of your blood sugar, following a proper diet and medication plan, also exercising regularly . Remember the ABC of diabetes control to avoid diabetic complications: A, HbA1C should be kept below 7, B: maintain a normal blood pressure, and C: keep cholesterol and lipid profile within normal range. Best wishes
