Valentine’s Day love from the American Diabetes Association
It’s not too late to use social media to share these tips with your patients and community.
Editor's note: We first shared this post last year. It's worth repeating this year.
On Valentine’s Day, it’s not just heart-shaped boxes of chocolate or romantic candlelit dinners that cause concern for many diabetics.
The American Diabetes Association has a page full of resources you can share in the “Living with diabetes”
section of its website.
“Will you be lucky on Valentine’s Day?”
includes tips on romance, food, sex and love.
Health care communicators can share links to the page or to other pages included in its links, such as “8 ways to heat up date night
” and “True love stories: When did you tell your true love about diabetes?”
Thanks to Christian Hospital, a BJC HealthCare hospital in St. Louis, for sharing the link on its Google+ page, with the message:
