Many people have issues with insulin sensitivity and insulin levels but follow a diet low in simple sugars and exercise regularly. The goal of this class will be to cover some often over-looked factors that interfere with blood sugar, insulin, and insulin receptors. These range from gut pathogens to endocrine-disrupting chemicals. We will discuss action steps to begin addressing these imbalances.
In this class I will list and explain the best superfoods that will help manage diabetes and blood sugar as well as explain the many other health benefits of these foods. I will also be discussing the importance of regular exercise in helping to prevent and manage diabetes and what kind of exercises get the best results.

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!

I've been a nurse for more than twenty years, and have cared for patients in settings from the hospital to the home. Though it certainly isn't easy to help patients manage chronic diseases, I find that the challenges of doing so endlessly interesting, and a great learning process for me. Diabetes management is a special interest of mine, as this is a disease with complications that can manifest themselves in virtually any part of the body. I believe that a holistic approach to managing diabetes is necessary to preventing complications. While there are excellent medications and skilled healthcare professionals, the patients who takes an active role in his/her own care plays an equally important part in preventing and delaying complications of the disease. Searching the internet for information about diabetes can yield thousands of links with instructions for patients, and not all of this is correct. Providing accurate knowledge about diabetes management is needed for patients to understand more about how to care for themselves. My goal as a healthcare professional is to help in disseminating evidence-based information from credible sources to the patients who need to hear, and hopefully benefit, from the knowledge. I earned a DNP from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, where I am a member of the faculty for the College of Nursing. I maintain a private practice in Decatur, Alabama, and am certified in Advanced Diabetes Management.
