I am going to be taking a Daibetic Course through Florida Hospital's Diabetes Center. It is a 10 hr American Diabetes Association Recognized Program for Self -Management of Diabetes. I will be attending every Monday evening for the month of Jan. 2009. If there is a question that anyone wants me to ask the instructor while I am there…please reply to this blog and I will try to get the answer for you.

Diabetes is incessant. By body part, diabetic experts are everywhere; feet, circulation, eyes, neurology, etc.

Where do you find the LOCAL experts for the psychological pieces of diabetes?

If it's a cognitive issue, what TOOLS should we practice/build to short-circuit the long term mental effects of diabetes in our future? Where do we get them… ?

Research showing any approaches, techniques working better than others e.g. the long term tools to help for the mental aspects of diabetes?

Where do I find them…

Am not sure. But judging from carb counting, and from what I've noticed, lower carb content is healthier it is. That and lower total carb count = lower insulin dosage for me :)

I am signed up for one in April...long waiting list.

My question is:
How do the exchanges determine the difference between healthy carbs and fats and unhealthy ones? Are they working on a way to help people with that?

It is great that you are able to attend. I am sure we will all find what you learn interesting. I would be interested to know if they are going to give any information on using the glycemic index to make food choices. Hope I spelled that right. lol Let us know if they do, please.

It's wonderful that you have this opportunity. The more you learn, the better you will be. I don't have any questions at the moment, but I will now have someone to turn to for help in finding answers. Thanks for letting us know about your classes.

Great idea! I know you'll find that helpful. It's been many years since I went to any type course, and it didn't last but 1 day, if I remember correctly. Had another couple of times with the nutritionist, but that was it. Nice of you to offer to get some answers for us. Thanks.
