REGULAR HEALTH CHECKUPS

This is the part that most of us don't like thinking about - possible type 1 diabetes complications. Complications are associated with having higher than normal blood glucose levels over a long period of time.

Look after yourself by having the following regular health check ups:

  • HbA1c - every 3 months
  • Blood pressure - every doctor's visit
  • Cholesterol - every year
  • Eyes - every one to two years
  • Feet - every year
  • Kidneys - every year
  • Teeth and gums - regularly
