Type 1 Diabetes: Living With the Disease - Treatment Overview
If you tightly control your blood sugar
levels, you reduce your risk for long-term complications. But you are also more
likely to have episodes of very low blood sugar. These episodes can be
dangerous unless you treat them early.
Studies are ongoing to find
painless ways for people with diabetes to test their blood sugar and give
themselves insulin, such as through
insulin pumps, improved needles, and inhaled insulin.
Ways to prevent or decrease complications from diabetes also are being studied.
