People With Medicare
The best way to manage diabetes is to learn how to change your lifestyle. Taking pills or insulin is not enough to prevent or decrease your risk of health problems from diabetes.
Diet, exercise levels, stress, and other factors may all affect blood sugar levels. The more you learn how these factors affect your health, the better you can control them. Then you can be healthier.
Medicare Part B covers most of the costs for you to learn:
- How to manage your diabetes, called diabetes self-management training
- What you should eat, called diet and nutrition services
