A program called “Sugar, Heart and Life: A Guide to Living with Diabetes” is available for people dealing with the disease.
The interactive and fun program developed by Baylor College of Medicine’s department of family and community medicine offers information on how individuals with type 2 diabetes can manage their diabetes. The program includes recipes, practical tips and games on diet, exercise and medication. The program allows users to follow a year in the life of the Gonzalez family as they learn more about managing diabetes and help them make decisions that will keep their family healthy.
All diabetes management recommendations contained in this program are consistent with clinical practice recommendations of the American Diabetes Association and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
