Healthy Living for Maine is offering a free workshop, beginning Tuesday, Aug. 10, to help individuals with diabetes improve their management of the disease and their overall wellbeing.
Examples of topics covered in the workshop include:
• Techniques to deal with diabetes symptoms such as fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress, depression, anger, fear and frustration;
• appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance;
• healthy eating;
• appropriate use of medication; and
• guidance on working with healthcare providers.
Living Well with Diabetes members can meet each Tuesday for six weeks. It is offered via Zoom and open to Maine adults dealing with diabetes and its symptoms. Caregivers and/or supports of those living with diabetes are also encouraged to register.
Additionally, people who would like to join the workshop but lack access to the necessary technology may be eligible to borrow a device through Healthy Living for Maine’s iPad
