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!
In this session, I'll share the tips and tricks I used to transition from a Standard American Diet to plant-based living. This information will help anyone fight disease and cultivate wellness through a new way of eating.
This session will delve into the importance of home blood sugar monitoring and the correct way to check. It will go into details about the best times to check readings and what the target numbers are to reach.

It addresses both the physical and emotional aspects of living life with diabetes while still addressing other non-diabetes related life problems to create a unique holistic approach to help people with diabetes thrive. For many people with diabetes, blood sugar takes a silent toll on cognition, memory, retention, and recall. It can diminish learning, raise stress levels, and spur additional maladies such as depression. It impacts all aspects of life, lifestyle and turns your life upside down. For the people close to them, it has an impact as well: they often must learn to cope with feelings of guilt, anger, being helpless, and worried about this complex health issues. My private practice helps clients of all ages and their families manage life with diabetes.
