How a Diagnosis of Diabetes Could Be Good for You

How did you feel when you were diagnosed with diabetes? Angry? Scared? A sense of loss? Those feelings are all normal and common. But did you ever feel like you'd just received a wake-up call? Maybe not, but you could if you looked at your diagnosis from a different perspective...


When you're diagnosed with diabetes, you're forced to examine your lifestyle. You have to become more conscious of what you eat and make healthy food choices. You are also counselled to exercise regularly. Before being diagnosed, it's possible that you didn't make the best food choices and perhaps exercise wasn't a priority for you. As you learn more about diabetes and how your lifestyle choices can affect your blood glucose levels, you might become more motivated to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
