Here are some tips for diabetes self-management from PCN nurses:
🥦 Eat a healthy diet. This includes limiting processed foods and choosing foods rich in fiber and nutrients
🏃🏾 Get regular exercise. Exercise helps to regulate blood sugar levels and can also help to reduce stress
🩸 Monitor your blood sugar levels regularly. This will help you identify patterns and make necessary adjustments to your diet and lifestyle
❌ Avoid tobacco use. Tobacco can damage your blood vessels and increase your risk for complications from diabetes
Talk to your family doctor or PCN nurse if you have concerns about managing your diabetes.
