Living with Diabetes

First impressions

The diagnosis of diabetes almost always comes as a 'shock'. It is a condition that will be with you for the rest of your life and it is undeniable that you would always need to be conscious of your diagnosis and devote some of your time to making sure your control is going to plan. Diabetes cannot be cured as yet but we have made enormous strides in the control of this condition and with practice you will find that you can develop the necessary skills to 'take charge'. It is a well worn cliche that you should 'control your diabetes rather than let your diabetes control you'.
