    With Diabetes your body needs to be cared for  By Cynthia D.Williams

     

    You must take care of your body,hands,feet.Plus use remedies on any open sore,overgrown toe nail see your doctor.You must use special soaps for these areas.The body also needs the proper circulation in restoring energy and relieve tension in muscles.To be able to function.All these steps help the body’s balance to maintain good health.

     

     

    Your regiment’s are vital and are enhanced once you’re committed to doing them.It’s important not to relapse into not being”motivated”.When that happens,I ‘ve been there.What you do?call up a friend or activities partner.To get you back in the right “frame of mind”.Because your life depends on it!.

    I agree and am in this "game" with you all.  We all need people to help us.  Keep in mind, and don't become a "full-time" Diabetic.  In other words, don't make your entire personality about "controlling blood sugars", "worrying about complications", "being sad all the time".  One can get into this "luxury" of always looking at "data" and "research" and forget to be living life fully - without worry.  So go get 'em guys!

    Bonjour Cynthia! Welcome to the world of blogging and looking forward to your next blog!  There's a few of us here that try to do our best in telling the world about how we deal with our soap opera life (or that's what I think mine is at least <lol>)!  I know I try to deal with it in a different way then others here deal with it - but we're all different in our approaches. Thumbs up with your blog on how to deal with our vessel of life - aka body.  I know for myself - there are so many great forums now for diabetics to turn to - this being one of them.  I wish I'd discovered these earlier - just found out last year - I'm a late bloomer aren't I? Take care!

  • Diabetics must take their medicine

    Diabetics must take their medicines By Cynthia D.Williams

     

    The Diabetic population has grown over the years.We have to make sure that we take our prescription medicine on time and everyday.To sustain our vision and lower our blood-glucose.Relaxation calms tension in the body.Along with other physical activities,walking and running too.

     

    Sometimes you  may purchase less expensive medicine like a generic.Which is a welcoming option because“keeping it real” medicines are expensive.But it’s beneficial to ask your pharmacist about the alternatives.

  • Attending diabetes education classes

    Attending diabetes education classes by Cynthia D.Williams

     

    These classes were very helpful.They tell you about maintaining your glucose and how to use your meters.You learn  about weight problems that occur from different foods,Where  too much sugar’s obtained in the blood stream.You’re informed of the importance to regulate a balance diet regularly.

     

    When dealing with our illness,family intervention’s key in understanding this condition.Once I told my sons they were assured  with my doctors help and their own research.It’s emotional but plausible to maintain safely a healthy productive life.Oh darling's don't forget to check me out at my main blog for more"positivity", until next post,I love yall smooches!.

    I agree with you about the importance of diabetes education classes.  I don't know if you live in the New England Area, but the Joslin Clinic located in Boston, is one of the best programs for getting the "latest and greatest" treatment ideas for diabetes.  They have a program called DOIT

    (Diabetes Outpatient Intensive Treatment), and it goes over your diet, checks your insulin/carb ratios and "sensitivity" factors (how much one unit of insulin will lower one's blood sugar).  You can lead a "normal" life.  Exercise is important to incorporate into a diabetic's life.  Keep on!

  • Diabetes coming to grips with it

    Diabetes coming to grip with it  by Cynthia D.Williams

     

    When I was diagnosed with diabetes it shocked me.I found out  it was family-related on my motherside.I learned it was type2 prior to the discovery.There was one relative living with it.My treatment option,to use oral pills not shots.”Positivity”and education on the illness is a way of life coping with it.When you learn those attributes,“living is easy”.I’ve learned to“cherish”it and not take life for granted.I don’t sweat the“small things”,but experience things I put off with vibrant vigor.
