Tip of the Week:

Get your eyes checked annually.  Retinopathy is an eye complication associated with diabetes.  Controlling blood sugar and regular eye doctor visits can help to prevent this complication. The American Diabetes Association recommends having a thorough eye exam when you are diagnosed with diabetes if you are over the age of 30 and every year thereafter.

Exercise Tip:

Joining an exercise class can help keep you motivated and consistent with your workouts because they are offered at set times.  Make sure the difficulty level meets your fitness ability and determine if the instructor is certified to teach exercise classes.  Exercise should always include a warm up, heart rate monitoring, and a cool down period with stretching.
