Managing Diabetes

(Honesdale, July 14, 2016)...Are you one of the 29 million Americans living with diabetes? According to the American Diabetes Association, there is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed.

“Diabetes management requires awareness and education. Knowing what makes your blood sugar levels rise and fall, can help you manage your diabetes better,” states Certified Diabetes Educator Carol Kneier, MS, RD, LDN.

Studies show balancing the food you eat with exercise and medicine (if prescribed) will help you control your weight and can keep your blood glucose in the healthy range. This can help prevent or delay complications and help you live a long and healthful life. “I’ve noticed the individuals who received education have better control and understanding of their diabetes,” stated Kneier. “The knowledge gained from these classes gives them the tools needed to better manage their diabetes and live healthier lives.”

Once again Kneier, who has been teaching diabetes management for more than a decade, is offering her “Living Well with Diabetes” classes over the course of three consecutive Wednesday evenings, beginning July 27th. The course will cover a basic understanding of the disease, the benefits of exercise and the role of food in diabetes management, menu planning, label reading, glucose monitoring and good care from head to toe.

The classes will take place at Wayne Memorial Hospital from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on July 27 and August 3 and 10. The cost is $50 for a participant and a support person. Financial assistance is available. Registration is required by Tuesday, July 26th. For information or to register, call (570) 253-8149.
