    Iím heading to Vegas to attend the American Association of Diabetes Educators national conference.

    I'm registered for a session w/ Sam Talbot (type 1, from the TV series Top Chef) who will be doing a cooking demonstration. 

    A few other sessions I'm looking forward to:
    • Insulin pump therapy for type 2,
    • Mindful eating,
    • Weight management strategies,
    • GLP-1 (hormone dealing w/ blood sugar and appetite).

    And oh yeah... how could I forget about everything else Vegas has to offer too! :)

    Tip of the Week - Diabetic Grocery Tips

    Grocery shopping can be time consuming and frustrating for those with diabetes.  Focus on shopping around the perimeter of the store to choose less processed and more fresh foods (the aisles tend to have less fresh and more processed foods).  Many fresh foods will not have food labels, so follow these tips when shopping:
    • begin with the produce section - choose a variety of colors of fresh whole vegetables and fruits,
    • next stop is the bakery - this can be a tempting area but focus your attention on whole grain breads,
    • move to the meat department and choose seafood, poultry, and smaller amounts of other lean meats,
    • last stop around the perimeter is the dairy section - focus on fat free and low fat milk, cheese, and yogurt.

    You are now ready to enter the aisles of the grocery store.  Be cautious of high fat and high sodium items found in the aisles.  Select products to complement the foods you have chosen from the perimeter.  Happy shopping!

    Featured Article - Can I eat sugar?

    In the past, when someone was diagnosed with diabetes, they were told they should not eat sugar.  The thinking was that sugar affected blood sugar more than complex carbohydrates (table sugar compared to a slice of bread). That thinking has ...

    Greg's Exercise Tips


    No Pain, No Gain???

    Physical activity should not be painful.  Gradually increase exercise intensity and duration with each workout.  Avoid the common mistake of jumping into exercise only to pull a muscle, strain a knee, or twist an ankle.  Exercise daily to benefit your health not hamper it with an injury.
