Diabetes Self-Management Blog

March is National Nutrition Month (designated by the American Dietetic Association), and in recognition of this, Longitude Health, a provider of health and wellness programs to employers, is hosting free Q&A sessions about diabetes and nutrition at MyHealthVillage.com.

Each hour-long session will be hosted by Cindy Sears, RD, CDE, and follow a chat format in which participants can type in questions. (To register for a Q&A session, e-mail Cindy here.) Sessions will be grouped by topic:

“You’re One of a Kind” (March 5 & 7) will cover finding out how foods affect an individual uniquely and why different treatments work for different people.

“Standards of Care: How Does Your Care Compare?” (March 12 & 14) will go over the American Diabetes Association’s Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes, so that you know how your treatment fits in with the ADA’s recommendations.

“Ahchoo! Diabetes and Sick Days” (March 19 & 21) will cover what to look for — and how to react — when sick.

“Picking the Blood Sugar Meter that’s Right for You” (March 26 & 28) will be all about blood glucose meters.

There will be two sessions on each of the days listed, at 12 PM and at 7 PM. To participate (after registering), visit MyHealthVillage.com’s Q&A session page. A list of all upcoming Q&A sessions can also be found here.
