Need information - I am a newly diagnosed person with diabetes
It may seem overwhelming and confusing when you are first told you have diabetes.
It is most important to get some basic information first, then later to learn more.
Here are some places to start.
Ask your doctor to refer you to a diabetes educator to learn more
You need some basic information
How to plan your meals
How are your favorite foods going to fit?
How and when to check your glucose/blood sugar
What should your numbers for your glucose/sugar be?
What do you do if your number is too low?
What to do if your number is too high?
If your doctor has put you on medicine
How does the medicine work?
What do you do if you miss a dose?
What are some side effects and/or benefits of the medicine?
I have a couple online courses to help you
