Type 2 diabetes
People living with type 2 diabetes often rely on managing their
food and exercise to balance their blood glucose levels (BGLs)
without any need for injections of insulin.
Like those with type 1, people with type 2 diabetes also often
check their BGLs and count carbohydrates in food they eat.
In addition, those with type 2:
- May use tablets to help reduce their BGLs.
- Can sometimes be successful in slowing or stopping the symptoms
of diabetes by making healthy choices in their food and
- Can sometimes use injections of insulin to live well with
diabetes, following a path similar to those with type 1.
