Managing Diabetes can be very difficult. And even those that normally have great control can slip every once in a while. This is normal. The problem is that once you start to slip it can be difficult to get back. The path to bad diabetes management is a slippery slope and one can find that the great control they had is now just out of reach. Diabetes is a game of continuous adjustments to all areas of the management plan. By letting your guard down in one area, all other areas are affected—this is when the downward spiral begins. Almost everyone living with diabetes finds themselves at the bottom of this spiral at some point or other wondering where to start to get back on track.
But don´t worry, it isn’t as difficult as it looks. But you do have to be willing to work hard to create and follow a great diabetes management plan. And the key is you. You have to decide you want to control your diabetes and not let it control you.

This can be one of the hardest things to do. Once you acknowledge that you have poor control, you must act on it. You may feel that it may be easier not to admit to yourself that you are in bad shape. This step is the hardest because no one else can help; you are the only person that can start the process of finding good control.
