Making the most of your membership

making-most-membershipSetting and achieving your health goals

Setting goals can help provide you with direction as well as motivation, particularly if you are feeling overwhelmed. By setting goals you are making a decision to act on something meaningful to you.

Here are a few tips about setting and achieving your health goals:

  1. Set small, appropriate goals.
  2. Be realistic. Set yourself up to succeed, however accept that sometimes you may not be successful the first time, don’t give up; try again. Take small steps.
  3. Understand you are an individual. When it comes to diabetes management your path is not the same as that of the person next to you. You may share the same goals, but your means of getting there may be different.
  4. Ask for help. Some things cannot be accomplished without help.

Accessing the support you may need to help you set and achieve effective diabetes management

Eliza looks at the positives in every situation

Eliza"Being a member of Diabetes SA over the years has provided me with the added support that helps me to feel confident to achieve these things. It has provided me with access to information and education, as well as lowered the financial stress by providing members discount on the supplies I require to treat my diabetes.

I have also met many other people with type 1 at Diabetes SA events which helps me to not feel alone and provides me with friends that I know understand the struggles of living with type 1."

Peter is well on his way to managing his diabetes effectively

Peter"From my first contact with staff in the shop to attending education sessions everyone has been friendly, helpful and encouraging. This has made our experience with the organisation extremely positive as we were treated as friends and not customers.

We have attended many education sessions. At the end of each session we came away with new knowledge and practical tips for managing diabetes."

How to avoid getting frail as you get older

frailMany people mistakenly assume frailty is part of normal aging. Developing frailty does not happen overnight — it takes years for frailty syndrome to develop as a consequence of low physical activity and weight loss. When it does develop, reversal is usually difficult.

It's true that many aging persons do become frail, but there are a number of interventions that can prevent or even reverse frailty, while maintaining independence and a high quality of life.

Researchers found that when consuming the walnut-rich smoothie, participants were less hungry, and their right insula was more activated — that's the part of the brain that's involved in appetite and impulse control.
