Diabetes Education…

I introduced Beth Dole a week, or so, ago.  She was kind enough to send me links to some of her posts about exercise, Diabetes and heart conditions.  I’m thinking why not have an expert provide posts on exercise?  Seems to make sense to me.  You have to have the right weapons in your War On Diabetes.

So, without further ado…

Diabetes Education

Diabetes is a horrible disease. It often leads to heart disease, kidney disease, amputations, eye problems. I find a major flaw in how we educate our new diabetics. Diabetic education usually consists of meeting with the diabetic educator/dietician for approximately 8 hours, and a two hour follow up annually if your doctor remembers to order this. We teach the patient what their goal blood sugar measurement should be, how to recognize the signs and symptoms, the ideal diet recommendations for them. What we don’t teach well, and often only give a short lecture format is the implications of activity and exercise on blood sugars. 

You can read the rest of it here.

As always, thank you for reading.

I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!
