Diabetes And A Positive Attitude

Terry, a city bus driver, shares his story about being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes over the age of 40. His routine physical showed cause for concern, but when the tests revealed he had diabetes, it still came as a huge shock to him.

He knew very little about the condition, and even less about how to manage it. He knew very little about carb-counting or even the calorie content of his favorite foods. So, for Terry, his diagnosis came with a lifestyle change that was extremely difficult.

However, Terry found ways to manage the adjustment by keeping a positive attitude. One of the biggest favors he did himself was to make it a priority to find fun ways to exercise with his wife and grand-kids. He also changed his diet, and now eats lots of vegetables. Terry knows that the best way to combat his condition is by managing his weight through exercise and a healthy diet.

With an upbeat outlook and the right support system, you can take control of your diabetes and live a healthy and happy life.

Watch as Terry shares how the right attitude and other important lifestyle changes can transform the management of your disease into a positive thing. One positive thought goes a long way!
