LivingWell | Successfully Manage Diabetes

Program Details

There’s no question that people with diabetes need to integrate healthy habits and patterns into their lifestyle. But a diabetes diagnosis can be a shock and managing it can feel like a burden. A negative attitude about having diabetes can spiral into negative habits that make things worse.

Diabetes is the only disease in which people define who they are by the disease, “I am a diabetic”. It’s important for them to own their disease but not define themselves by it in negative ways. Instead, it’s critical for improved health that they adopt a positive attitude, eat well, exercise regularly, go for regular checkups and take their medications on schedule.

A diabetic employee costs their employer an estimated $6,603 a year in increased health costs, lost productivity and absenteeism. That translates into approximately $724 each day in excess costs for a company with one thousand employees.

LivingWell educates and empowers participants to transform the way they think about their disease. Taught by Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian and Medical Nutrition Therapist Janice Baker and cognitive behavioral training expert Lou Ryan, the program is designed to help participants master diabetes management so that they can lead a happy, fulfilling life. At the end of the day, the goal of the training is for diabetes to become their good teacher and guide as to how they live their lives.
