Diabetes HealthSense

Diabetes HealthSense is a new tool developed by the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP), a federally-sponsored program of the NIH and the CDC.  The NDEP’s latest tool provides users, including health care professionals and consumers, with a searchable database of research, tools, and programs to address the wide array of psychosocial and lifestyle-change challenges associated with diabetes self-management. Diabetes HealthSense includes links to tools and programs to help people set goals and find ways to deal with the stress and emotions that can prevent a person from achieving their goals — whether they have diabetes or are at risk for the disease. Diabetes HealthSense, which can be found at www.YourDiabetesInfo.org/HealthSense  also features a series of three- to five-minute videos, which address topics such as setting goals to improve health, living with diabetes, finding the support you need, as well as segments on diabetes prevention and physical activity.
