Be The Boss Of Your Diabetes:
Three Self-Management Tips
850 ✦ VEH. & BOAT
(NAPSA)—Diabetes is one of the fastest-
growing conditions in the U.S. Today, the num-
ber of Americans diagnosed with diabetes has
skyrocketed to nearly one in 10, compared to
one in 100 just 50 years ago. Chances are that
you or someone you know is coping with it.
What You Can Do
Hearing from your doctor that you have
diabetes can be an overwhelming experience.
From that day forward, your “new normal” may
involve some lifestyle changes. Managing dia-
betes is a 24/7 responsibility, and many people
don’t know where to turn for help to get start-
ed. The good news is that diabetes self-man-
agement education classes and resources are
widely available. Diabetes education can help
you to navigate changes and learn simple ways
to improve your overall health.
Diabetes self-management means a num-
ber of key behavioral changes, including
tweaks to diet and exercise, and learning to
manage your medication. And while you can at-
tempt those tweaks by yourself, you don’t need
to go it alone. Most insurance plans, Medicaid
and Medicare cover diabetes self-management
education. Unfortunately, studies show only 6
percent of people take advantage of diabetes
classes meant to help them manage their dia-
betes within the fi rst year of being diagnosed.
You can get a better handle on self-man-
agement for your “new norm” with these three

What I dream of is an art of
balance, of purity and seren-
ity devoid of troubling or
depressing subject matter; a
soothing, calming infl uence
on the mind, something like
a good armchair which pro-
vides relaxation from physi-
Chance can allow you to ac-
complish a goal every once
in a while, but consistent
achievement happens only if
you love what you are doing.
Th ere are no mistakes. Th e
events we bring upon our-
selves, no matter how un-
pleasant, are necessary in
order to learn what we need
to learn; whatever steps we
take, they’re necessary to
reach the places we’ve cho-
sen to go.
Don’t be afraid of show-
ing aff ection. Be warm and
tender, thoughtful and af-
fectionate. Men are more
helped by sympathy than by
—Sir John Lubbock

• Get moving with easy-to-use ﬁ tness
technology. Physical activity offers huge ben-
efi ts for people with diabetes, including lower-
ing blood glucose levels, helping with weight
loss, and controlling blood cholesterol and
blood pressure. Fitness trackers and apps for
phones and tablets make it easier to incorpo-
rate physical activity into your daily routine. For
example, the Blue Cross “do.” app can help you
choose activities and set reminders through-
out the day to stand up, stretch, walk and more.
By successfully managing your diabetes,
you can improve your quality of life and help
prevent complications down the road—includ-
ing cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, eye
damage, hearing impairment and more.
A diabetes diagnosis changes your life, but
your new norm can lead to changes that can
help you feel better and stay healthier.
