    Diabetic Blood Sugar Goals

    I have Diabetes, what should my blood sugar be?  Where should blood sugar be to avoid complications?  What are normal blood sugar ranges for healthy people?

    Tip of the Week - Keeping a Blood Sugar Log

    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.

    Weekly Exercise Tip

    Good tunes makes exercise go by quicker!

    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.
