The management of diabetes involves a number of crucial considerations. The most important of these is the role that the patient plays in managing their own condition. More than any other factor, an individual is the most important ingredient to their condition. Diabetes management may include any of the following: Adherence to a strict diet and exercises, and the in-taking of medicine either orally or by injection.

Diabetes management however is complicated by other factors, some of which the patient has little control over. These include other illnesses, the effect of stress as well as the development of scars where constant injection occurs. This not withstanding, a patient can manage diabetes effectively provided they make some level of commitment.

Diabetes can be effectively managed through yoga. The discipline that is associated with yoga can help patients live long productive lifestyles. As noted earlier, diet and exercise for diabetics are critical considerations. Usually, if these two are well managed, the need to use drugs is highly minimised. Diet and exercise both require a certain level of discipline and motivation. The mind needs to develop commitment and be connected with the body such that such commitment is implemented by the body.

Yoga has physical benefits such as better blood circulation and burning of excess fat in the body. Besides these, there is also the added mental and emotional benefits that are gained through meditation and focus. It is associated with better stress management, improved self worth and better mental focus.

Management of diabetes needs all these benefits. Improved blood circulation not only helps better circulate oxygen in the blood but also transports sugar faster to the body's cells. This process helps keep a patient's energy levels up. Certain stretching that is associated with yoga helps circulate energy better in the body their by keeping the patient active. The relaxation associated with yoga also helps keep an individual's blood pressure in balance and reduces irritability.

One of the most important advices that doctors will give a diabetes patient is the need to learn and understand their own bodies so as to better manage their conditions. In diabetes, you are your own best doctor. This goal is very much in sync what yoga helps people achieve: a better connection with self. An individual with a raised self awareness has power to manage self with high degree of effectiveness. For a diabetic, there can be no better asset than this increased self awareness.

A special type of yoga called Dahn Yoga has one additional advantage that is work mentioning especially with regards to diabetics. It focuses on increasing the connections between the body and the mind through simple exercises that are easy to do for people of all ages and sizes.
