Skipping sleep. Not getting enough shut-eye can cause night sweats, which can worsen symptoms by dehydrating your body. Being tired or stressed can also increase your appetite for sugar and other diabetes no-no’s.
Not tracking blood glucose. Gauging whether medication or insulin shots are working to control the disease requires frequent blood tests.
Improper dieting. Diabetes maintenance centers around proper nutrition — not diets. Losing and re-gaining weight all the time may throw off your metabolism.
