Living with diabetes can be very frustrating at times. Low and high blood sugars can get in the way of everything from taking a test at school to having sex. Understanding what the underlying causes of these frustrations are, can help reduce or possibly even prevent Diabetes Burnout. While the actual events you're frustrated about are part of the equation, how we think about our diabetes plays a much larger role. During this seminar, we are going to go over the causes and symptoms of Diabetes Burnout. We are going to look at contributing factors of diabetes burnout: Perception of diabetes, Value placed on Diabetes Self-Management, Perspective on Blood Glucose. Self-Care behaviors that can be used to reduce burnout will be discussed as well. There will be a short question and answer period as well. I look forward to helping you reduce diabetes burnout. See you there!

Today's society has become obsessed with finding the "perfect" diet. Yet overweight, obesity, diabetes and heart disease are at an all time high. The disconnect lies in the hidden patterns and behaviors that negatively impact our ability to be fully aware of our food choices. "Uncovering" and changing these hidden patterns and behaviors along with practical common sense nutrition is really all it takes to connect the dots between knowing what to eat and actually doing it. This session will teach you the necessary mindset shifts that must occur for real change as well as simple strategies to balance your meals without cutting out your favorite foods.
