    Diabetes Educator Conference - Update

    Iím back from Vegas and the American Association of Diabetes Educators national conference.

    A few sessions I attended covered:
    • GLP-1 hormone.  Most people with type 2 diabetes have low levels of GLP-1,
    • Insulin pump therapy as an effective way to treat uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, and
    • Better results when the entire family is involved (not just just the person with diabetes) in making lifestyle changes.

    I also met two of the inspirational folks from...

    The Biggest Loser

    Jay and Jen Jacobs (father & daughter) who lost a combined total of 295 pounds!

    Tip of the Week

    Keeping a blood sugar log (booklet or handheld device) can help with diabetes management.  Track: 
    • date & test time,
    • blood sugar reading,
    • food consumed, if testing after a meal - (note larger portions than usual or alcohol consumed), and
    • any notes regarding what could be impacting your blood sugar (i.e. feeling sick or just exercised).

    A log can help you and your healthcare team understand how well your diabetes is being controlled and make any necessary adjustments.
