In the United States, nearly 26 million people are diabetic (8.3% of the total population), which has started to suffer even from the age of 20. The management of people with diabetes is summarized in what is referred to as the four pillars of diabetes management: a disciplined diet, regular exercise, antidiabetic drugs and insulin injections, and ongoing education. Since diabetes is a disease that has not been cured, these four pillars must be carried out continuously with consistent throughout the age, during the life still contained the body. When performed disciplined under the supervision of a physician, the person with diabetes can live a normal life and be able to prevent (or at least slow down) the occurrence of these terrifying complications.
