LivingWell | Successfully Manage Diabetes

The growing diabetes epidemic

Diabetes, a devastating and expensive chronic disease that affects almost 10% of the US adult population, is growing at epidemic proportions, fueled by a further 34% of US adults with pre-diabetes. Type 2 diabetes—which accounts for 95% of all diabetes cases—is usually a direct result of an unhealthy lifestyle.

An undiagnosed diabetic is estimated to cost their employer an average of $4,030 a year in increased health costs, lost productivity and absenteeism. The average rises to $10,970 a year after diagnosis.

Where most diabetes management solutions fall short

There’s no question that people with diabetes need to integrate healthy habits and patterns into their lifestyle. Healthy eating and regular exercise, timely medical check-ups, and medication compliance are all critical … but are often easier said than done. A diabetes diagnosis can be a shock, and managing it can feel like a burden. This often leads to a loss of motivation that spirals into low treatment compliance, poor self-care and ongoing unhealthy habits that continue to make the condition worse…

Although diabetes management programs usually do a good job on the educational and organization aspects of managing the disease, they usually fall short when it comes to providing the cognitive skills, motivation and empowerment needed to emotionally regain control of the disease.

The SelfHelpWorks approach

LivingWell is an online cognitive behavioral training program that educates and empowers participants to transform the way they think about and manage diabetes—not just physically but also emotionally. The program is designed to help participants master the three critical areas of successful diabetes management—emotional, physical, and educational—so that they can lead a normal, fulfilling life.

LivingWell consists of nine video-based sessions taught by Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietician and Medical Nutrition Therapist, Janice Baker, and cognitive behavioral training expert, Lou Ryan. Numerous useful support tools and checklists are also included, as well as optional weight loss and tobacco cessation programs.
