When living with diabetes it is important to consistently take steps to integrate self-management into your lifestyle choices. This includes how you eat, exercise, and how you take your medications. September is Self-Improvement Month, a time to set goals and help you on the path to making a better you. Since diabetes is a condition that is greatly influenced by your lifestyle, taking steps to have an active role in your diabetes management can make a significant difference in your life.
At Palm Beach Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists, PA. we offer patients a number of resources for diabetes education. In these programs patients are taught how to maintain their own condition and recognize the signs of early complications. Research shows that patients who receive Diabetic Education achieve better diabetic control, feel better, and have less of a chance of getting complications from diabetes.
Factors such as diet, exercise, medications, mood and your general health status can affect your sugars. Achieving good sugars requires that you understand the effect of your lifestyle on your diabetes.
