Let's Get Moving!
The last time we met we had a physical trainer, Mr. Mumford as a guest speaker. He showed the group some simple and easy exercises to help them improve mobility as well as build strength. Mr. Mumfurd left these great exercises for us to use for our class. We’ve mentioned to our patients that we are going to be moving around a lot more, just to get them ready, and they seem to be alright with this. With time and God's help we will become a physical class too.
A great observation is more of these patients are monitoring their blood pressure and their blood sugar frequently. Many are getting into the habit of writing these results down for their records and to share with a health provider. Blood sugars for some have improved significantly! For instance, we have a lady whose blood sugar was around 500 mg/dL when she came early in the year and has now brought these levels down to less than 200 mg/dL.
