Where Do I Begin?
You have so many questions when first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This booklet starts to answer them and invites you to enroll in the Living With Type 2 Diabetes program for more information and support. Call 1-800-DIABETES (342-2383) or ask your doctor for a copy.
Each member will receive 5 mailings through the 12-month program, which includes the following:
Everyone's top question is "what can I eat?" We'll answer that, plus show you how to create a healthy plate. And you also get our great recipe sampler, including tasty diabetes-friendly recipes to try!
You know that diabetes affects your emotions. And stress can affect your diabetes. We'll help you find ways to relieve stress and get a better handle on your emotions. Plus, you also get a visit planning tool to help you track your tests, medicines and questions for your doctor.
Making changes can be hard, but the key to success is to start small. Now pause to congratulate yourself and set another goal!
Physical activity is an important part of your daily life. You get a free Food & Exercise Journal to help you track your progress. Managing your blood glucose levels helps prevent diabetes complications. We'll talk about how diabetes can affect your nerves, skin and feet. Plus, try out new recipes!
