The Cycle of Care

The risk of diabetes-related complications is reduced when blood glucose levels, blood pressure and blood fats are kept as close to normal as possible. Good management of diabetes also includes feet, urine, eye and dental checks.

Some of these, such as your blood glucose levels, you will be able to do yourself. Others will be done by healthcare professionals.

The “Cycle of Care” information sheet outlines the targets that have been set to help people with diabetes maintain the recommended cycle of care for:

  • Blood glucose levels (BGL)
  • HbA1c (Glycosylated haemoglobin)
  • Blood pressure (BP)
  • Cholesterol (blood fats – lipids)
  • Eyes
  • Feet
  • Urine/Kidneys
