ABSTRACT
When a person has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, treatment aims to maintain normoglycaemia (blood sugar within normal limits), relieve the symptoms of diabetes, maintain or improve quality of life and prevent the complications associated with diabetes, such as stroke, heart attack, eye and vision problems, kidney damage, nerve damage, foot ulcers and circulation problems in the legs and feet. This article aims to improve your understanding of diabetic diet and your knowledge of the medicines used to treat diabetes, and inform you about new treatments for diabetes.
