Taking Control

Diabetes requires YOU to be 100% involved in your own diabetes management. It requires you to be the leader of your own diabetes management team. Team members should include, at the very least, an Endocrinologist, a Certified Diabetes Educator and a Nutritionist. For more comprehensive care and management you may also want a Cardiologist and a Physical Trainer. You should also make sure to include any other relevant medical professionals for your specific needs. Diabetes is 24/7/365 (366 this year :)). Any additional management resources you, as a PWD(Person With Diabetes) can add to your own care is highly recommended.  The Diabetes Project has a course that may help newly diagnosed people or people who want a refresher in how to best manage their diabetes. There are free coupons available for this course.  https://www.udemy.com/course/healthylivingwithdiabetes/?referralCode=5F2C7106F026E4721138

Healthy Living With Diabetes

For the last year or so, in addition to work, life and other projects, I have been producing a course on living with diabetes. It is the first course of, hopefully, many. This first course is an introduction to learning about food, what it does to blood sugar and how to make healthy choices when shopping in the supermarket. You can find the course here: http://www.udemy.com/HealthyLivingWithDiabetes

Check it out. Share it with your friends who live with diabetes. We all know someone with diabetes, the statistics have us approaching 30% of the population as being affected by diabetes. It is a relentless condition. 24/7/365 and sometimes we get lost on our journey to a healthy lifestyle. Being aware and mindful of the foods we eat, the exercise we get and the medication we take is paramount to successful diabetes care. I hope you can benefit from this course or know someone who can!

Here’s to a healthy life!
