    Make sure your diet is compatible with your individual healthcare needs before starting a new diet to manage diabetes. Food allergies or food intolerances, as well as treatment-related conditions that require the restriction or avoidance of certain foods, should be taken into consideration.

    Motivational Monday: We Have The Power To Choose

    “Illness changes who we are.
    Illness teaches, yet it tarnishes.
    It can define, but it prefers to refine.
    Illness has potential to divide,
    But it can reconcile.
    You are not your illness,
    Yet your illness will shape who you become.
    Will you be filled with hope?
    Or bold with bitterness?
    Illness will change you.
    How will you allow it to change your life?” - Lisa Gopen

    I want to remind you that each of us has the power to choose how this health journey will affect us. It's impossible to change what's happened, but we can change our mindset. It doesn't matter if you have been diagnosed recently or have been living with this condition for decades, we can shift our mindsets by choosing life and managing our conditions.

The person can be a relative, a friend, or a group of people that you can trust.

    Food & Nutrition Friday: Family Support

    Does Your family support your way of eating since being diagnosed with diabetes?

    When I was first diagnosed, my family and close friends were very supportive of my diet changes. They, however, ate different kinds of food from me. Due to my disordered eating recovery, I now eat differently, but my family remains supportive.

    My colleague, Chris shares three ways on how to train your family to help support your eating habits:
