To Change or Not to Change

Ask our CDE

When first diagnosed with diabetes, health care professionals ask us to make a lot of changes in our lifestyle, all at once. This includes starting new medications, making dietary changes, counting carbohydrates, testing our blood sugar levels, exercising, sleeping better, and managing our stress more effectively. There is wide variation in the health behavior change that we all decide to take on.
