Work with your body and learn to manage your diabetes for a healthy and happy life.
Thriving with Diabetes empowers you to take charge of your diabetes, so you don't just deal with your symptoms, but change the way you think to improve your health, happiness, and quality of life. Through a simple four-step process, people with diabetes learn how to intuitively understand their blood sugars and what causes both good and bad numbers. This proactive approach results in the ability to manage diabetes personally, not just by a set of notes from the doctor.
Written by Dr. Paul Rosman and David Edelman, co-founder of Diabetes Daily, Thriving with Diabetes is not just about eating joyful, satisfying, and diabetes-friendly meals (although that's certainly part of it!), but also about managing the daily challenges of physical activity, stress, pain, sleep patterns, and other life events that have a major, but underappreciated, impact on blood sugar trends. You'll also pinpoint your favorite meals and activities and use them as multipliers of success--focusing on thepositive rather than the negative. The result is immediate and satisfying improvements to total health, both physically and mentally!
