Take a S.T.A.N.D. - Address the Crisis of Uncontrolled Diabetes

Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD), a leading not-for-profit diabetes education organization has launched the national public awareness campaign Start Taking Action Now for Diabetes (S.T.A.N.D.), to address the need for better blood sugar control among people living with diabetes. S.T.A.N.D. strives to challenge others to think differently, engage new voices and create partnerships to ultimately change the course of one of the country’s most urgent health issues. The goal of the TCOYD PSA campaign is to encourage people to manage their diabetes using a team approach.

I am in control of my diabetes because I am determined to live a long life free of complications. I saw firsthand what uncontrolled diabetes can do--my grandmother had her legs amputated and was blind and my cousin a year younger than me died at an early age after going through kidney dialysis. Everyday I run 3 miles and weight train four days a week--building muscles enables you to utilize more efficiently the insulin you inject or produce. In addition, I am on a low- carb, low -fat diet--plenty of fish with Omega 3, vegetables, berries and nuts are the primary components of my meals. I have respect for the body I was given and look at Type 1 diabetes as one more challenge to overcome. Everyday of my life I assist anyone with diabetes or weight problems to get in control--anything is possible once you develop the determination to live a lifestyle that promotes optimum health--physical, mental and spiritual... Let's make the world a better place for ourselves, our family and our friends by taking control.
