Facebook chat - Carb counting
We did a carb counting workshop on 12th July and wanted to follow up on Sunday, 2nd August to see how everyone was coping with all the information and applying it in their everyday lives, so we decided to have a Facebook chat to find out. If you're not part of our Facebook group yet, click here to join.
The Power of 'No' workshop
Sometimes it gets difficult to say 'no' to opportunities or people and we end up physically and mentally over-burdened. For people with diabetes and their caregivers this could mean that they end up neglecting their own or their family member's health for the worse. Click the Instagram post below to read tips from psychologist Aakriti on how to confidently say no, from our workshop conducted on 9th August 2020.
We had an energetic and fun aerobics workshop by Zumba instructor, Kinnari who joined us all the way from Guam. This recreational workshop was held on Sunday, 16th August 2020.
Pregnancy and diabetes workshop
How should people with diabetes take extra care while planning a pregnancy or what should be done if you get diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy? We found out during the workshop conducted under Project Gaia, our endeavour to empower women and girls living with diabetes in India. We chatted with Dr Nina Mansukhani, Obstetrician and Gynaecologist (Pune). Her forte is high risk pregnancies, infertility & laparoscopy. Click on the post below for takeways from the workshop held on Sunday, 23rd August 2020.
We had a packed month with 5 weekend workshops in August! We ended the month with a very sweaty, yet fun kickboxing workshop on Sunday 30th August, led by 4th Dan Master and Black Belt Firoz.
Blue Circle Diabetes app : NEW FEATURES!
Download the Blue Circle Diabetes mobile app on Android and iOS. The 3 shiny new features are:
1.Buddy Project helpline on the app
The Blue Circle Buddy Project is India's first community led diabetes and mental health app based helpline run by trained, multilingual volunteers with lived experiences. Previously this was an online helpline and it's now integrated into our mobile app as well!
Click the post below to know more about the Reports feature in the Blue Circle Diabetes mobile app. Remember the more you log your sugars, food, exercise, insulin etc, the richer and more detailed your report will be. To generate reports, simply go to Reports and select the report of your choice which will be emailed to you. While there's no easy way to get a detailed report from the Glimp or Tomato apps, you can sync Glimp/Tomato with the Blue Circle Diabetes app and generate reports through your Libre Pro and/or Miao Miao!
With Covid being omnipresent, it's not easy to visit a pathalogy lab too often so we decided to show you an estimated A1c, right here on the app so that you continue to remain on track with your diabetes management. Obviously this doesn't replace getting your A1c checked at a lab but think of it as a daily reminder to help you stay the course.
We couldn't keep up with the number of entries we received for this campaign so we let the campaign flow into August as well! Keep sharing your photos and videos with us on our monthly topics (remember, September is our birthday month and the topic is #ThankYouBCDF). Upload your content through the Blue Circle Diabetes app. We want to hear from you!
