Get Pumped: Safety first, tip #2

Exercise with a buddy!

If you are just starting an exercise program or trying to stay on track, get a buddy!  A friend, co-worker, or family member can provide moral support and help you stick with the routine.  They can also help you treat a low blood sugar or call for help if there’s a medical emergency. If you have questions about low blood sugar or treatment of low blood sugar, contact your diabetes educator.

    I try and read your posts and comments all of the time. You have helped me a great deal in meetings or in your office. I just can’t help wondering: What made you become an educator? What about it made you choose it as a career path? I can’t even help myself so I can’t imagine helping others. Just curious.

      I’m so glad to hear that you have found our program helpful. We all became diabetes educators for different reasons, but I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we are passionate about health and enjoy helping others succeed in improving themselves to live a better quality of life. I believe that we can change the world one person at a time! Caring for diabetes is something to constantly work at. Keep learning, keep trying and don’t give up. You don’t have to let it control you. Please read the “About Us” tab for our educators’ personal stories.
