How is type 2 diabetes treated?

Initially you can try to lower your blood sugar level by making significant lifestyle changes.

The focus of type 2 diabetes treatment is:

  • An adapted exercise therapy
  • Reduction to a normal, healthy body weight
  • Changing to a healthy diet, counting carbohydrates

A change in diet and more exercise means that the body's cells can increase their capacity for insulin again, meaning that the blood sugar level can be lowered. If this does not succeed in reducing blood glucose, additional medical treatment (tablets or even insulin) is required.
