Setting Personal Goals

Type 2 Diabetes Self-Management

When you’re living with type 2 diabetes, it’s a daily challenge to keep your blood sugar levels in check. Setting personal goals can help you focus your efforts and try to keep yourself on track. Goals like eating healthy, staying active, and monitoring blood sugar can be important aspects of diabetes self-management. It’s also important to be realistic about your goals. Making small, manageable changes—such as adding just one healthy habit to your day—may help you stay motivated.

As with all decisions concerning your treatment of type 2 diabetes, it is important to work with your doctor to determine what is right for you.

Helpful tips for type 2 diabetes self-management

Create a meal plan

Make a go-to guide for choosing which foods to eat and when. A successful meal plan can help you stay on target for your blood sugar numbers and weight goals.


Stay active

Regular physical activity is not only good for managing your type 2 diabetes but also for your overall health and well-being.


Check your blood glucose (blood sugar) if your doctor told you to do so

Testing and tracking your blood sugar levels can help you and your doctor see how well your diabetes plan is working. If your blood sugar levels are too high or too low, your doctor may want to change your treatment plan.
