Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease. This means that once the body starts to lose the ability to process blood sugar, it continues down this path. Over time, blood sugars begin to react differently to the same medication, food, and exercise choices. This can be frustrating and confusing.

Instead, it just means it is time to make changes to your diabetes care plan. This happens to everyone.
In this section, you will learn how to work with your diabetes team to keep your blood sugars on target.
