My Diabetes My Way: February 2023 Update
Welcome to the My Diabetes My Way Newsletter for February 2023.
Set Your Health Goals with My Diabetes My Way
When you access your records on My Diabetes My Way, you can set goals for your measurements such as weight, HbA1c, blood pressure, and to help you stop smoking if you smoke. Setting goals is a good way of focusing on specific aspects of your health that you would like to improve. You can access the goal setting page by logging in to access your diabetes records and selecting:
My Home Data -> Goal Setting.
Try to be realistic when setting your goals and when you aim to achieve them by. You can always make changes to your goals later on if you need to. Let us know if there are any other data items that you would like us to add to this section of the website.
