The Medical Family

People with diabetes need a couple of families... the ones they are born with, the ones they create, and their medical team (doctor, nurse, dietitian, exercise consultant, mental health person.)The team is there to support and challenge you and to keep you from burning out. No one should carry the burden of diabetes alone.

You are the “head” of the team. The plans that you make with your team have to be collaborative. You have to be independent and thus active and self-confident, but allow yourself the constructive suggestions of what you can do differently.

But remember, you are the expert on you!
