Talking about diabetes

  I recently heard something interesting about diabetes and I want to share it with you. In a conversation with Professor Katharine Barnard-Kelly,  Ph.D.  she said she believed people who have had diabetes for a while fundamentally know how to manage the mechanics of it; the challenge is how to apply it in the context of their own lifestyle.  Juggling diabetes alongside other everyday priorities can be an enormous task, and it is little wonder that so many people experience diabetes burden and distress. A simple approach to reduce the feeling...

What is a diabetes emergency

You never know how you are going to respond to a crisis until it happens. That’s why kids practice in schools with drills for fire, earthquake, tornado, and other emergency situations. So they are prepared when something happens. But what happens when the crisis is something you would never think to plan for, like accidentally using the wrong insulin pen and injecting way too much insulin? What would you do?

The way society treats people with diabetes may prevent us from actively practicing good diabetes self-management in our attempt to keep our diabetes a secret from friends, family, and the general public. The way our culture views diabetes is our unfortunate reality. The number of people with diabetes is expected to rise to 522 million in the next ten years. It is time we look at...

Too Busy to Exercise? Create a Family Challenge and Get Moving!

Busy. Active. Frenzied. Rushed. Scheduled. Hectic. Do any of these sound like your family? As a result of longer commutes, a rise in two-parent working families and the demands of individual schedules, families have limited time to spend together. And when they do have time together, much of the “leisure” time as a family consists of shared space in front of a screen—cinema, television, or individual phones, tablets or computers. While we can’t always deny the call of the couch, especially at the end of a busy multi-tasking day, maybe we can rise to a family health challenge. The lure of social media can’t be...
