Type 2 Diabetes: A Morning-to-Night Routine to Keep Your Blood Sugar Stable Around the Clock

The more stable your blood sugar levels are with type 2 diabetes, the healthier you’ll be. Here are some daily tips and tricks to help make that happ

It’s not always easy to manage type 2 diabetes or to keep your blood sugar levels steady, so that damage from highs and lows is kept to a minimum. But it’s doable. It just takes some planning and smart management.

The key to steady blood sugar levels around the clock and from year to year, according to Jesse Vander Heide, a certified diabetes educator at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, is to develop a routine that you’re confident you can stick to over time.

“Anybody can do something for a week,” Heide says. “With diabetes, we want to look at the long-term picture. How can you do this for one day — and for five years? How can you do this for rest of your life? Until we have some sort of cure for type 2 diabetes, [these are the timeframes] we are looking at.”

Heide urges people to think about all aspects of having type 2 diabetes: How you like to take your medication, how you check your blood sugar, how you eat. “All of these things should be what you can keep up in the long-term,” he says. Routine is vital to success — as is understanding your disease.

Here’s a morning-to-night routine that can help you successfully manage type 2 diabetes.

In the Morning

Check your blood sugar. If you have type 2 diabetes, you should check your blood sugar level every morning before you eat, says Marjorie Cypress, CDE, a nurse practitioner at ABQ Health Partners in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and past president of health care and education at the American Diabetes Association. This gives you a good baseline idea where you stand and allows you to make adjustments throughout the day.
