    Reminder to self/😬

    Hi all, happy weekend! 💁🏻‍♀️

    Just sharing this resource below that I keep handy in my phone to look at in times of need.
    Hopefully it can help ya in any way, take what you wish from it.

    Just had my dentist appointment earlier, I have noticed I occasionally have my teeth grinding at night in the last week or so for a couple nights. My dentist advises me to try and relax at night. I'm thinking haha hmm yeah...really hard to do when under stress.
    I really don't want to have to get a mouthguard/splint put in again😟

    🤔Anyone else got any tips to share around with how to deal with sleepless nights, teeth grinding.
    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Wellness Wednesday: Latent Autoimmune Diabetes In Adults (LADA)

    For this Wellness Wednesday, I want to share my story about Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA).

    LADA is a slow form of type 1 diabetes that occurs after the age of 30. It is often misdiagnosed as type 2 diabetes.

    It took me almost three years to receive a correct diagnosis.

    Contact your healthcare professional immediately if you don't see results from managing your diabetes, your blood sugar levels are creeping up without making any changes to your current diabetes management plan or your symptoms and risk factors are consistent with LADA.

    Wellness Wednesday: Accessing Affordable Non-insulin Diabetes Medication

    Today, I want to share a quick resource from the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialist on Non-Insulin Diabetes Medication Cost-Saving Resources.

    This is a list of drug manufacturers and organizations that provide cost-saving programs that help people access diabetes medication.

    Remember that this is not a permanent solution, but one way to help people with diabetes afford lifesaving medications.
