Here are five important steps children with type 1 diabetes should take to keep their diabetes under control

.

1.- Insulin therapy: Inject insulin or use an insulin pump


2.-Food: Have a healthy diet and follow a meal plan

.

3.-Self-control and Care: Measure blood sugar levels


4.- Sport: Maintain an active life and play sports

.

5.-Education and Information : Replicate peer education and information that can be provided by any institution related to diabetes.

Following these steps helps the person stay healthy but does not imply a cure for this condition. There is currently no proven way to cure diabetes. Therefore people with type 1 diabetes need to be in constant treatment. But it is important that if the treatments are followed and the corresponding precautions are taken, long-term complications will not develop.
