Description

This module covers the healthy habits that patients must develop to manage their DM effectively. That starts with monitoring blood glucose levels with a meter and test strips and understanding the glycemic goals. The module also details the importance of medical nutrition therapy, exercise (both aerobic and resistance), and other self-management issues, such as foot care and regular checkups, to curb the potential for complications (such as those related to the eyes and digestive system). The module also clarifies how management differs slightly for children with diabetes and gestational diabetes patients.
