Hey everyone I think a good way to cope with the fears of complications associated with diabetes is to set goals and objectives related to it. I was wondering what all of your goals/resolutions are related to diabetes. Mine are as follows:
The main goal: Get my A1C below or at 6.5
The objectives: count carbs more accurately by looking the nutritional content up before eating it (rather than guessing)
limit carb intake in each sitting to below 70 grams (I find I go high if I eat more than this, or at least the insulin to carb ratio becomes more complex)
Try to follow the canadian food guide more stricly (i.e. 10 servings of fruits and veggies per day, etc)
Limit caffeine consumption (it makes things awry each time, and since I don't habitually drink it, when I do it makes things weird)
Exercise regularly, incorporating more cardio into my routine.
Use/find stress reducing mechanisms regularly to keep the mind healthy (which definitely makes managing sugars easier)
.. I think that's it for the time being, I'll probably add more in later.
