Do You Have Questions About Food, Nutrition, and Diet? It doesn’t matter if you just learned about your condition or if you’ve been living with it for years; diabetes can turn your life upside down and leave you stressed about what to eat. You need straightforward information with options that fit you and your individual needs and tastes not a “one-size-fits-all” approach to diabetic nutrition. A Diabetes Self-Management Program can teach you to make better choices in restaurants, the grocery store and kitchen; self-monitor food intake, activity, and progress; read food labels; distinguish appetite from hunger; navigate a restaurant menu; and more. https://zurl.co/VZ1Yx

Hate Exercising or Have Trouble Making Time To Do It? We know exercise is important, especially in managing diabetes but sometimes it’s just hard to put it into practice. Sure, some people might have exercise ingrained in their daily lives but for others work, family and life’s responsibilities always seem to get in the way. In a Diabetes Self Management Workshop, you’ll learn how to get more exercise by making the most of activities that are already part of your daily life. Find creative ways to ease into exercise, build an active lifestyle, create a fun, low-impact walking program, set realistic goals, and monitor your progress. Start the new year with a solid plan! https://zurl.co/Nek8v

Diabetes can drag anyone down from extra abdominal fat, urinary changes, elevated blood sugar, injuries that take a long time to heal. A Diabetes Self-Management Program addresses how burnout may contribute to poor self-care, high blood glucose & complications.

Do You Feel Confused By Information Overload? Maybe you’ve been told to carefully monitor your calories and eat a good, balanced diet only to do that and still have trouble keeping your blood sugar level? Understanding dietary changes, blood glucose monitoring, and prevention of complications can feel scary with tons of details to remember. For a diabetic, sometimes it’s overwhelming to figure out what’s what. With so much information to process, it’s hard to keep up. The Diabetes Self-Management Program explains, in terms that you can understand, how diet and activities affect how you feel so you can take control of your diabetes and live a happier, healthier life! https://zurl.co/pVg13

Does Dealing With Diabetes Feel Like a Struggle?
If Yes, Welcome to The Club! In Fact, a Very Large Club! More than 29 million Americans have diabetes and more than 57 million have prediabetes.
It is a complex, chronic condition that patients, not their doctors, have to manage. The vast majority of people who have trouble managing their diabetes aren’t lazy or unmotivated; rather they don’t know what to do–or how to do it. A diabetes self-management program can give you the ability to make those decisions smart and healthful. You and your support network need simple, clear information about what to do to take care of your diabetes and how to do it. https://zurl.co/JYaok
