Have you kept your New Year’s resolution to improve your A1c? If you have, kudos to you! Keep up the good work, it’s well worth it.

If not, what has stopped your efforts? Does it seem too hard? Need to stick to a schedule? Don’t have the patience? Whatever your challenge, I’m hear to remind you, it’s worth the effort.

Mary Tyler Moore, a type 1 diabetic diagnosed at the age of 33, struggled with this disease. Moore was also an advocate for diabetes research. Whether you are a type 1 or type 2 diabetic, the consequences are the same. Moore was almost blind by 2014, her overall health failed from diabetes, kidney and other issues.

Have you ever spoken to a diabetic who has lost control of their health, lost a limb, their eyesight or have diabetic neuropathy? Quality of life for these diabetics is certainly not what anyone plans for.

Try one good practice to improve your glucose level for at least 30 days. Add veggies to your breakfast; whole or in a green smoothie. Why not a salad? I remember years ago having cold pizza for breakfast – so don’t lock yourself into foods being reserved for a certain time of the day. Your body needs nutrients.
