In brief: No Limits on Life

Diabetes may pose challenges in your life but certainly won't dictate what you get out of life.
Keep your management relationship with a trusted physician ongoing and nurture advice from other professionals including dieticians, nurses, counselors and fitness experts. Only the limits you self impose will be the ones you have to deal with in this life. Enjoy!

In brief: Life as diabetic.

People with diabetes can live full, active lives.
..IF...IF they take good care of themselves as diabetics. Watch blood sugars. Eat right. Exercise regularly. Go to your foot doctor and eye doctor regularly. Take your medications. If you don't take care of yourself, diabetes can be devastating.
