How is type 1 diabetes treated?
Type 1 diabetes is treated with a combination of medication (insulin) and lifestyle management, such as eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise. People with diabetes often also need to see a range of healthcare providers such as podiatrists (foot specialists) and ophthalmologists (eye specialists) to check for common complications. It is also likely that you will need to see an endocrinologist (a doctor who specializes in hormonal problems).
