November is #NationalDiabetesMonth

#NationalDiabetesMonth strives to raise awareness and continue the conversation surrounding the #diabetes epidemic.

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.

November is #FallPreventionMonth

It’s important to remember falls don’t discriminate – they can happen to anyone at any time.
A simple accident like tripping on a rug or slipping on a wet floor can change your life.
A broken bone can lead to more serious health problems and long-term disability for older adults.
The good news is that most falls are preventable. There are a number of things you can do to reduce your risk of falling, including:
✅ Exercising regularly
✅ Maintaining a healthy diet
✅ Have your eyes and ears tested
✅ Wearing proper footwear
✅ Having your home assessed for bathroom design, lighting, floors and surfaces, and grab bars
Talk to your family doctor if you are worried about falling or someone in your life falling. Your doctor can help suggest other steps to help prevent future falls.
