Our first guests are Dr. Phil and he will be joined by Pamela R. Kushner, MD, FAAFP, a board-certified family physician who can talk more about type 2 diabetes, who is at risk and how it can be treated. Dr. Phil is sharing what he learned from his successes and mistakes via the “ON IT” Movement Aimed at Helping People with Type 2 Diabetes Create a Plan and Stick to It.
Dr. Phil is the Executive Producer and Host of TV’s #1 daytime talk show, and best-selling author. But what many do not know is that he has been living with type 2 diabetes for more than two decades.
Managing the disease is a 24/7 commitment, and he knows firsthand the reality — no one can be perfect. While the physical impact of type 2 diabetes is well-recognized, there are also psychological barriers that many people face when trying to stay on a healthy plan to effectively manage their disease. Even Dr. Phil, who has worked hard with his doctor to develop a plan that works for him, admits he has made mistakes, and hopes to share those learning experiences in an effort to inspire others with type 2 diabetes.
Dr. Phil is sharing his personal experiences living with the disease through the “ON IT” Movement. His background as a former practicing psychologist, along with his own challenges living with type 2 diabetes, have given him a unique perspective on the psychology of committing to take action and keeping yourself accountable when managing the disease. That’s why his advice includes learning how to readjust when things don’t go according to plan, specifically by sharing how he’s overcome missteps in managing the condition. Below are some quick tips to get back “ON IT.” For more information go to www.OnItMovement.com also offers patient education materials provided by AstraZeneca and video content from Dr. Phil himself.
