Like many chronic conditions, diabetes is NOT easy to manage.

There’s a lot to take into account, especially understanding your own body and how it reacts to everything from insulin (whether you make it on your own or not), medications, food, drink, stress, happiness, sadness and the list goes on. Then there are the numbers. From your daily blood glucose checks to your A1c percentage, not to mention weight, cholesterol, blood pressure – keeping track of it all is at times overwhelming.
