Live Well

Manage your diabetes

There are many steps that you can take towards managing your diabetes and staying in good health.

While monitoring your blood glucose levels (BGLs), taking prescribed medicines and regularly visiting your healthcare team are key parts of managing diabetes, choosing a healthy lifestyle is one of the most powerful steps you can take yourself.

Making healthy choices in your everyday life, such as eating well or getting active, will serve not only to help you better manage your diabetes but will help you to avoid other health conditions and complications.

Every change, whether it be as small as eating an extra serve of vegetable or as big as quitting smoking, will make a difference to your overall health and well-being.

We are here to help you. Diabetes WA runs several programs that can help you start on your journey to better health. Learn more about our healthy lifestyle programs.
