It takes 6 weeks to develop a new habit.
Welcome to DIABETES FAMILES BLOG! The families I work with have made me realize that while there may be a lot of information about type 2 diabetes in adults, information about type 2 diabetes in children is harder to come by. There is not one resource that provides a variety of important information about Type 2 Diabetes (T2) in children that families will need.
I've assembled several types of resources you will find useful:
-Explanations of medical information about T2 in children, including early warning signs, what to expect from your doctor, the various treatment options available and a clear definition of T2 and how it affects us.
- Guidance to help children avoid or control T2 Diabetes. Learn how to turn medical recommendations into a manageable lifestyle change by establishing health habits you customize for your family's unique needs.
- Networking information to help you make a difference in your community. Join other families to improve your schools, parks, playgrounds, and other resources in your neighborhood. Help make getting and staying healthy easier for your whole family.
I hope you will find DIABETES FAMILIES a reliable source for the facts, tools and resources you need as a parent, professional practitioner or concerned citizen. Your feedback is welcomed and will be responded to as I answer your questions and continually update the site to provide more of the resources you request.
