Diabetes is not a death sentence. Many diabetics enjoy long, fruitful and happy lives, but it does it require proper lifestyle management. Daily treatment, regular monitoring, healthy diet and exercise, and ongoing education are all key elements of this.
Naturally, managing with Diabetes becomes much easier with family support.
That’s why its important your family gets educated about Diabetes as well. Their support can help you to eat right, exercise and take your medication if needed.
For more information on support, contact the Diabetes Association of Trinidad and Tobago, and talk to your doctor.
