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
