Living With Diabetes - What you should know
Whether you've been living with Diabetes for a long time or are newly diagnosed, it's important that you have as much information as possible to better understand your condition and what you can do to manage it.
There are many things you can do well - like eating healthy and being physically active. The Guide found here aims to provide you with some indroductory information you need to know about these subjects to live a full, healthy life with diabetes. The guide is not intended to replace a more thorough diabetes education that can be provided by a diabetes educator.
Remember to talk to your Doctor or Nurse Practitioner about your diabetes management targets and to see whether you should be meeting with the Diabetes Outreach Clinic.
