Many years later, I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes while pregnant. I successfully managed it with diet alone, but I know this means I have a very high likelihood of developing type 2 Diabetes in the future. I regularly read up on how to form habits and overcome psychological barrier to caring for oneself because it matters to me AND my patients. I know where to get the cheapest insulin because I’ve helped people navigate the system.
I talk about these Lifehacks for Diabetes every day in my clinical practice.
But why not share it with the world? And learn from others, too?
- Easier – using habits and automations
- More fun – making a game out of it
- Positive – this is an opportunity to impact not only our blood sugars but also our energy level, mood, and loves ones surrounding us!
Type 2 Diabetes is hard.
It’s also hopeful; there’s so much we can do.
So let’s do this together.
