Take it Seriously

You may have heard people say they have "a touch of diabetes" or that their sugar is "a little high". These words suggest that diabetes is not a serious disease. That is not correct. Diabetes is serious, but you can learn to manage it. People with diabetes need to make healthy food choices, stay at a healthy weight, move more every day, and take their medicine even when they feel good. It's a lot to do. It's not easy, but it's worth it. You are not alone!" Lori Menold, RN, CDE
