Patients with diabetes benefit from following a nutritious, balanced diet and engaging in physical activity.1,2 It is important that you communicate to patients the benefits of a healthy lifestyle on the management of diabetes.
Remind them that:
The “Stick to a Healthy Plan” tracker is available in both English and Spanish. You can download and share it with your patients to encourage them to keep track of their food choices and physical activity.
Ask your patients to bring their Stick to a Healthy Plan tracker with them to their next visit. Encourage your patients to share—with you and their support network—their progress and any challenges they encountered while trying to meet their nutritional and activity goals.
