For my final blog post, I’d like to take this opportunity to talk about overall health and solid diabetes management through the use of my favorite diabetes metaphor. As I see it, long term diabetes management is a 3 legged stool. We have three goals (or legs) that we need to keep in mind as we go about crushing it at life with diabetes.
The first goal is good physical health. This means blood sugars that are well controlled and a lifestyle that includes good food and regular exercise. Most of us are pretty well-acquainted with this one so I’ll keep going.
