What We’re Reading: ADA’s “Living With Type 2 Diabetes”

While there are already many great support communities for those living with diabetes, the American Diabetes Association has recently launched a program for those newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The goal of the ADA’s “Living with Type 2 Diabetes Program” is to provide “help, hope, and support” in what can be a very overwhelming situation.

In addition to a host of articles on the ADA’s Web site, participants will receive regular mailings or e-mails on topics such as food, stress, and physical activity. They will also receive a monthly newsletter and have the opportunity to participate in an online support community. The ADA takes its program one step further and provides opportunities for participants to meet in person at local ADA events. “Living with Type 2 Diabetes” is free, available in English and Spanish, and through the mail or e-mail.

To find out more about this program, you can visit the ADA’s “Living With Type 2 Diabetes Program”[1] page. You can enroll at diabetes.org/living[2] or call 1-800-DIABETES.
