Life With Diabetes


Life With Diabetes

November is National Diabetes Month.

Dr. Mario Trucillo, from the American Recall Center contacted me and shared a page on their website about Life with Diabetes. The infographic presented was very informative and much needed. I knew some of the information posted, but was also well educated about the ways people with diabetes can manage their disease.

Meal planning and exercise are at the top of the infographic. I believe this is a vital message for all people struggling with the disease. Eating right is doing half the work. Exercise should be an essential part of any persons lifestyle. It helps physically and psychologically.

Please take a minute to read through the infographic below and share it as much as you can. Let us spread the word and raise diabetes awareness 🙂
