Living Well with Diabetes is a fun, interactive six week workshop to help people with type 2 diabetes better manage their health. This evidence-based program is provided by Davis County Health Department’s Senior Services.
Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program.
Subjects covered include:
• Techniques to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress, and emotional problems such as depression, anger, fear and frustration
• Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance
• Healthy eating
• Appropriate use of medication
• Working more effectively with health care providers
Anyone with type 2 diabetes should attend the workshop. Family and friends of those with diabetes also are encouraged to attend.
