Exercise – do you get enough?

trackersRegular physical activity is very beneficial for people living with diabetes. Exercise is an important part of diabetes management as it can help insulin work more effectively, help maintain a healthy weight, decrease the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduce stress and of course it makes you feel good. But how much exercise do we need and how do we know we are doing enough? As a general guide, everyone should aim to do 30 minutes of physical activity or around 10,000 steps each day for good health; but how do we know that we have achieved this?

Pedometers

Wearing a pedometer is a good place to start if you want an inexpensive way to keep track of how many steps you are doing. Some of the latest smart phones even have built in applications (or an application you can download for free) where your actual phone can be used as a pedometer to not only track your daily steps, but also tell you how many calories/kilojoules you’ve burned. Some smart phones even have a sensor on the back which can measure a person’s heart rate! If you do not have a smart phone, then a pedometer can be an inexpensive way for you to keep track of how many steps you take each day. Once you are aware of how many steps you are taking, you can try to increase this to reach the 10,000 steps per day target; or if weight loss is your goal, 12,000 or more steps per day.

Fitness trackers

Technology is advancing very quickly away from the everyday pedometer and now you can get fitness trackers that you can wear on your wrist. These fitness trackers can measure the distance you’ve walked, run, cycled or swum, how many stairs you’ve climbed, how many calories/kilojoules you’ve burned, your heart rate and even track the amount and quality of sleep you have, each day.

Some even contain a GPS to accurately track your running and can also act as a watch. These devices sync with an app on your smart phone so you can track how much activity you’re doing each day. There are also some bonus features on these apps where you can insert what you are eating so you can set calorie/kilojoule goals as well as fitness goals for each day.

Which is the best?

When it comes to finding a fitness tracker that is right for you, each device measures different things so you should think about what you need in a tracker and research the different types to find one that most suits your needs. For example if you are a swimmer and want to track how many laps you do in the pool, you will have a smaller selection to choose from as many fitness trackers are not waterproof.

Tracking your level of physical activity each day can help with your diabetes management as exercise can positively impact on blood glucose levels.

There are many different types of fitness trackers available on the market, so try to find one that is suitable for you and what you do. Make sure you consider the cost too. Sometimes the more expensive devices aren’t always better, so shop around.

Why not try a pedometer or a new fitness tracker device today, start small and walk towards the 10,000 steps a day goal!

CEO's message – Living July 2017

CEO Living

This edition of Living is jam-packed with great information so much so that I found myself learning a few new things reading the articles. As they say you are never too old to learn something new and this was certainly the case for Darryl Stoldt a member of Diabetes SA who after a life changing experience embraced this ethos and changed his life. What a positive and inspiring story to share.

Like Darryl and many of our members know, the management of diabetes is often a team approach and in this edition we remind people of the importance of an annual cycle of care that monitors the effects of diabetes on different parts of the body. The article on page 14 provides information about what you need to do each year to ensure that your health is in the best that it can be when managing diabetes.

To support you in your diabetes management on page 16 we have introduced new education sessions that will launch in July. These new sessions will be part of our education offering and I would encourage you to take the opportunity to book into these sessions even if you have been diagnosed for a while or recently. Like Darryl said "every bit of information or help you get offered don’t; be ashamed to accept it, all the help you can get, take it." Alternatively book into the National Diabetes Seminar on Saturday 8 July where Dr Ian Tucker and Dr Kim Pese will be speaking about some of the most sensitive issues that we find embarrassing to speak about. See page 15 for more details.

As what we eat plays an integral role in the management of diabetes, the articles on macronutrients and food security and making food affordable is a great read and provides many helpful hints and tips for ensuring that we eat well not to mention that there are some lovely winter warmers to cook.

Often this time of the year we receive many enquiries from people with diabetes looking to travel overseas, this year we have answered all your questions in the article diabetes and travelling and have also included helpful hints to stay well whilst travelling.

As I round off the CEO’s message for this edition it is fitting that I end on the high note of our Kids Camp that was held recently. It always amazes me the courage that these children show dealing with their diagnosis and managing their diabetes day to day. Whilst some have attended camps before, others are first timers but all come together in a very supportive environment to learn about managing their diabetes and to share their experiences with their peers. As you can see from the parent’s feedback on page 23 providing these camps is a fantastic way for children to learn about their diabetes, overcome their fears and be proud of their achievements. Well done to all!!

On that note, stay healthy and happy!

Angelique Pasalidis, CEO Diabetes SA

Diabetes SA had the privilege of attending the NAIDOC Family Fun day held at Pika Wiya Health Service at Port Augusta held on Wednesday 5th July. Our Health Services team were there to showcase our resources and offer friendly advice and education for any diabetes-related questions. We provided resource packs, risk assessment tools, and promoted healthy eating by handing out beautiful seasonal fruit and almonds for people to enjoy.

The interactive 'sugar content' display of drinks and our blood vessel display were also a great hit.

Many families attended the event and enjoyed the nice weather combined with a BBQ lunch and kangaroo tail fresh out of the campfire.

Humphrey Law Health Socks 

Finding the right pair means selecting socks that best meet your needs

There are many different socks that are suitable for people with diabetes. If you haven't developed any type of neuropathy, wear socks that feel most comfortable. Some people with diabetic neuropathy experience dry and cracked skin on the feet. Socks with a soft material may be more comfortable.

If you have poor circulation because of your diabetes, avoid socks that are too tight or that have elastic at the top that may dig into your leg. Diabetes SA's range of Humphrey Law socks provide people with a range of choices, choose from men's regular socks, men's large socks, extra large socks, ladies socks, and specialised foot wear.

Extra Wide and Large Socks

Media Release – National Diabetes Week 9–5 July 2017

July 2017

DIABETES: HAVING REGULAR HEALTH CHECKS CAN PREVENT DIABETES RELATED COMPLICATIONS

National Diabetes Week (9 – 15 July) aims to raise awareness of diabetes.

There are more than 103,000 South Australians diagnosed with diabetes, yet many people remain uninformed about the importance of the annual cycle of care for optimal diabetes management.

During 2017 National Diabetes Week, Diabetes SA is launching a campaign to increase the awareness and greater understanding of diabetes in the community.

The 2017 National Diabetes Week campaign promotes the following key messages:

  • Know your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  • Have a health check and improve your understanding of what the numbers signify and how they relate to your diabetes management.
  • Looking after your diabetes is important for your long-term health and can reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications..

To support the campaign, the following resources are available:

Each year, Diabetes SA holds a seminar as part of National Diabetes Week. The theme for 2017 is Diabetes Behind Closed Doors, with expert speakers discussing diabetes-related complications related to continence, sexual health, and sleep problems. This seminar is free to all people registered with National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) and takes place on Saturday 8 July 2017 at the Adelaide Convention Centre (bookings essential).

For more information about National Diabetes Week, visit www.diabetessa.com.au, or find Diabetes SA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.

Diabetes SA is a non-profit member-based association. Our mission is to educate, advocate, support and fund research that provides better outcomes for people at risk or living with diabetes.
