    Tip of the Week:

    Diet and blood sugar are directly related.  High blood sugar in the short term can cause excessive thirst, frequent urination, and blurred vision.  In the long term, high blood sugar can cause complications including kidney, nerve, and eye damage.

    Here are some food tips for better control: 

    • Eat meals and snacks at the same time of the day, each day.
    • Consume the same amount of carbohydrate evenly throughout the day.
    • Avoid skipping meals or snacks.
    • Keep an eye on portion sizes.

    Control blood sugar by eating right, regular exercise, and frequent testing.  Controlling blood sugar will help you avoid complications.

    Greg's Exercise Tips:

    Listening to music makes exercise easier!  Use a music device with headphones (e.g. MP3, CD, or Radio) to keep you moving.  Your favorite upbeat music will keep you moving throughout your entire workout.
