Learning to Love

In light of February, the month of love, Transcend is encouraging our diabetic community to continuously love themselves. Living with an autoimmune disease, such as diabetes, is not a choice. But that does not mean that it has to dictate your life or stop you from living your days to the fullest.

When living with diabetes, we must learn the best ways to manage our disease in order to emotionally and physically feel good. Something that will help you continue to manage your diabetes is if you love yourself – or learn to love yourself. By remaining active, making healthy food choices, and regularly monitoring your blood glucose levels, we are confident that managing your diabetes will become a part of your lifestyle, versus a duty, task or burden. What else can you do this year to help you emanate love? Transcend has provided a few suggestions below to help you get started:

    • Set time aside in your day to do something you love.
    • Find a new hobby.
    • Read a book that you can’t put down.
    • Get outside, remain active.
    • Spend time with your family and friends.
    • Write in a journal – this is a great way to help manage stress.

Transcend Glucose Gels are 15g, the recommended dose of glucose by the American Diabetes Association. Each pouch is designed to make the lives of our consumers easier. Our 1.1oz pouches can easily be stored in your backpack, purse, Myabetic bag, or car so that you can treat your lows from anywhere at any time. By keeping our gels close by, you eliminate (or at the very least, reduce) the stress of combating blood sugar lows. What do you keep in your Myabetic or diabetes pack? Love yourself, be prepared and keep your levels on track with Transcend.

Transcend is always encouraging our T1D and T2D community to speak up, share your stories, and inspire yourself and your peers. Since the New Year, Transcend has been requesting our audience to share a word or phrase that will motivate and inspire you to stay strong, love yourself, and keep on trucking throughout the year.

One of Transcend’s words of motivation for 2020 is ‘Determined.’ We are determined to keep going. We are determined to keep our heads up. We are determined to manage our diabetes in a healthy and responsible manner. What is your word or phrase of motivation? What will inspire you to love yourself in 2020?

We want to hear! Share your 2020 word or phrase of motivation here for the chance to be 1 of 3 lucky winners to receive a free Transcend gift pack.
