What is a diabetes support group?

Tweet Share With the recent launch of our new homepage, we’ve included a “Community” section where you can see the latest posts from Facebook, Twitter and this blog site – along with posts from our Diabetes Support forum. On its anniversary we spoke to some of its members to tell their story and heard about what makes it so special…. The online platform also publishes news and information related to the disease to keep readers up to date. In the weeks and months after being diagnosed with diabetes, emotions are often pushed to one side as you try to get to grips with new treatments and changing your lifestyle. A normal A1c is between 4.0 percent and 5.6 percent. The Diabetic doc is only available two days a week in the private hospital. We are also very proud of our brilliant Starter Kit, a special resource for newly diagnosed people; and our online learning module, Living with Type 1, which is an important tool in advocating and raising awareness on issues of concern to people affected by type 1 diabetes.

My husband and I are both Diabetics (He’s type 2 and I’m Type 1) We had forgotten our test strips and insulin back in Florida, and I didn’t realize it until we got to New Hampshire. We want to create an atmosphere that is informative, comfortable, and fun. My doctor was most unhappy with that saying watching my caloric intake was just as important for baby’s health and my sustaining patterns in my pregnancy. The knowledge they share is the knowledge they have gained by being Diabetic themselves. Online support groups offer an increasingly convenient way for people to connect with others in a similar situation. The extent of that intolerance will vary from person to person. And it’s all as easy as a click or a tap away.

If you are seeking a support group for yourself, your family member or friend with diabetes, talk to the diabetes healthcare team. If you haven’t discovered them yet, go and try them! I soon joined other diabetes websites, and made many friends. So, in summary, for me it would be Metformin, check diet and exercise. If I can swing it, I’m going to order more tomorrow. Sauna treatments have been easy but hard at the same time, using supplements don’t treat anemia quite so much as prove that it’s a problem.
