Advice is given about dietary requirements, the benefits of physical activity and healthy lifestyle in maintaining good blood glucose control. Instruction can be given in self monitoring of blood glucose levels. Regular monitoring of the condition is carried out to ensure appropriate treatment and early detection of complications that may arise. Blood pressure, urine, eyes, circulation and weight are some of the checks carried out. A recall system is in place and patients are reminded when they are due for review.
