In the past week I have met with dozens of people with diabetes as we work together towards the goal of obtaining better overall health. I met with people that were newly diagnosed and I met with people that have been working towards better diabetes management for years.

One common thread that is shared by all of us – we can ALL learn more. And then try to take what we’ve learned and apply it to our specific management plan.

Here are few articles that I’ve written in the past that I am constantly referring back to. Maybe you, too, will find something new in one or many of them that you can adapt to your lifestyle.
