Living With The Stress of Diabetes

Managing diabetes is time consuming and stressful. There are lots of numbers to keep track of, carbs to count, rules about what and when to eat, and lots of equipment to carry around. It’s almost like a second job: one you can never quit, and never take a vacation from. Unfortunately, the constant pressure can make diabetes worse. Assess your stress and mood living with diabetes.

How do you escape the negative cycle of stress, panic, loss of control and burnout?

AbleTo helps people with diabetes take control of their stress and get their lives back on track. We teach participants to identify the negative, self-defeating thoughts that can interfere with making healthy choices and lead to feelings of depression. And we help them find the motivation to make lifestyle changes and increase positive behaviors. Participants monitor their blood glucose levels, mood, diet, and exercise in order to track progress and develop healthy habits. Armed with tools that make it easier to live with diabetes, program graduates feel more relaxed and optimistic about the future so it’s easier to keep their blood sugar under control.
