Tips From A Professional Diabetes Educator In Our Community

Ok, back to our war against childhood diabetes! I contacted Ms. Suzi Moore who is the head of diabetes education at Waccamaw Hospital in Murrells Inlet, SC and she has given a me a few tips that she would like to pass on.

  1. Limit sugary beverages and juices
  2. Be physically active for 60 minutes every day (or at least most days)
  3. Limit TV/computer games to 1-2 hours / day
  4. Children should get 9-10 hours of sleep at night

Suzi Moore, RN, BS, Diabetes Educator, Certified Wound Care Nurse is the Diabetes Self-Management Program Coordinator for Georgetown Hospital System. She will be visiting us at Karate World in Surfside on Saturday, Sept 13th at 11 a.m. to talk to our karate kids about proper eating habits and other ways to combat diabetes!
