Diabetes management is about taking an active role in your diabetes and slowing or stopping the progression of the disease. At Fit & Well, MD that includes optimizing both medication AND lifestyle management.
Our diabetes education focuses on self-care behaviors that help individuals learn how to manage their disease and be as healthy as possible. These include:
- Healthy eating
- Being active
- Taking medication
- Healthy coping
- Reducing risks
The goal of diabetes education is to help people with diabetes practice these behaviors daily. These lifestyle changes are difficult to incorporate but really help lower blood sugar (glucose), blood pressure, and cholesterol. Diabetes education provides an individualized plan which includes the tools and support to help make meaningful lifestyle changes easier to follow.
