November | Diabetes Month

November is diabetes awareness month and the holidays can be a tough time of year for those with the condition. It makes diabetes burnout more common. Which can lead people to stop taking diabetes medication or no longer watching what they eat. Hali Harrison is with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and focuses specifically on diabetes education. Harrison says people experiencing burnout can make an appointment with her office to discuss methods to get back on track.

“A lot of people may receive education when they’re initially diagnosed. But diabetes can change over time. You can change, your circumstances change, and so we can really help you know, maybe revisit what are your goals how are you approaching your diabetes? We’re also just a listening ear because diabetes comes with a lot of different emotions. I mean, want you to have a place where you can express those.”
