Learning about your diabetes, gaining knowledge about it, helps in a very positive way!

Yes it does, the more you know about a thing the more control youhave over it. This site has increased my knowledge and understanding of the big D. I learn something each day that allows me better choices with dealing with D…LIVE Friend.

I use learning something new (every day if possible) as my coping mechanism in order to deal with this thing. Knowledge is a tool, a guide, and a weapon. the more you use it and add to it, the better your defences.

I have a couple other metabolic/endocrine disorders (thank you genetics LOL) I have been working with my specialist to tie together how diabetes and these other fairly unique condidtions work togather- i.e. my diabetes numbers indicate what's going on with the other diseases. I guess you could say diabetes is my diagnostic barometer for them.. and its a new connection that they are just starting to get- understanding my diabetes, and teh metabolic pathways, the way everything fits together like a puzzle has helpe me to understand tehse other things and become really proactive in my treatments for my diabetes and teh other issues i have.

Knowledge is definitely power!

I would be most likely dead or very, very messed up. I was fortunate and found this site just 2 months after I found out I was diabetic. I asked millions of questions and everyone here helped point me in good directions. I have read, studied and make journals. I went to class and that helped a WHOLE lot!! I try to learn something every day.
