AADE7™ Self-Care Behaviors Handouts

These handouts provide some basic information about the seven different areas to focus on when you are trying to manage your diabetes. Each one includes some facts, tips, advice and activities that will get you started on your self-care and reinforce some of the lessons you learn in your diabetes education sessions.

They are provided in both English and Spanish (universal Spanish, not targeted to one particular dialect), and we have the English versions available in an audio file (.mp3) for visually impaired persons: Healthy Eating, Being Active, Monitoring, Taking Medication, Problem Solving, Reducing Risks and Healthy Coping.








*The English handouts were developed in honor of the 2009 National Diabetes Education Week; the Spanish handouts in honor of 2010 National Diabetes Education Week. They are supported by an educational grant from Lilly USA, LLC.
