Take control of your life
Living with diabetes every day can prove challenging. Eating well, staying active, taking medications, testing glucose – it all takes time, determination and perseverance. Add to your regimen the ongoing task of staying informed about changes in treatment methods, as well as how changes in your body can affect your condition, and you may become overwhelmed.
That's why we encourage you and your family to learn as much as possible about how to take care of yourself. Our classes, seminars and support groups teach you how to take care of yourself and manage your condition. We also help you understand your type of diabetes and how to control it for a lifetime.
