Is Your Diabetes Medication Effective?

Credit: Diabetes.com

Diabetes can take you by surprise sometimes.

People who have received a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes might not have detected any symptoms until they visited the doctor. Only after being diagnosed, they begin to reflect and realize they may have been experiencing increased thirst and fatigue.

Conditions like diabetes, which can remain silent, can cause harm if left untreated. Untreated diabetes can lead to dangerously high glucose levels that damage blood vessels and organs. Neglecting it can result in severe complications such as kidney failure, blindness, and other disabilities.

Given the inconspicuous nature of diabetes, how can we ensure the effectiveness of our diabetes medication?

After starting on diabetes medication, changes in oneself may become apparent. These effects could include:

  • Heightened energy levels
  • Reduced thirst
  • Fewer bathroom visits
  • Diminished hunger

For individuals with diabetes, it’s crucial to monitor blood glucose levels daily. Checking your blood glucose levels is a practical way to gauge the efficacy of your diabetes medications. The typical blood glucose levels range between 70-130 mg/dl for adults before meals, although this can vary from person to person.
