Demystifying Diabetes: The Complete Diabetes Lifestyle
Date:11/7/2007

New book helps the newly diagnosed create a vibrant lifestyle

REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays usually mean tossing dietary discipline out the window. But for those just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, navigating the holidays is treacherous. In "The Complete Diabetes Lifestyle"(http://www.completediabeteslifestyle.com), diabetes lifestyle coach Donna Kay spells out how to thrive despite having type 2 diabetes, not just during the holidays but every day.

Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at age 35, Kay was overwhelmed. She read books and talked with healthcare professionals, but something was missing. "The upbeat book that spoke to my heart as much as to my head didn't exist," says Kay. The "Complete Diabetes Lifestyle" demonstrates that addressing the needs of the heart and soul are just as important as managing the physical aspects of diabetes. Speaking with the authority that can only come through first-hand experience, Kay uses humor and easy-to-understand language to help the newly diagnosed step into a healthier life.

"With type 2 diabetes, some of the toughest challenges have to do with changing your mind first, and then changing your behavior," continues Kay. "Living a successful life with type 2 diabetes is about making little changes and small choices that become big changes and important choices over time."

Kay notes that creating an individualized diabetes management plan is vital in successful diabetes management. It requires three basic steps. First is acknowledgment. Coming to terms with the fact that you have a chronic illness is a must. Second is education. Learn the basics about the illness and create a top-notch healthcare team to help guide you. Third is application. Apply what you've learned in a way that works for you.

Holiday Tips

Kay offers some tips to help keep blood sugar levels in healthy ranges, not just during the holidays but throughout the year:

1. Exercise first thing in the morning. You get it done for the day, and

it won't be hanging over your head for hours as something you need to

do.

2. Keep a small cooler in your car packed with ice and healthy snacks. As

you're running between work, shopping and ferrying the kids, grab these

goodies instead of getting fast food.

3. If you slip up, forgive yourself. Focusing on guilt and negative

feelings takes away from your ability to concentrate on your goals.
