Support group in the greater Boston area forming for Jewish type I diabetics.

I've been contacted by a few post teenage diabetics and families who would also be interested.

The group will focus on the special needs of Jewish diabetics in terms of a kosher diet, Sabbath/Shobbos and Yom Tov observance as well as the advantages and problems with various types of meters and pumps with regard to these issues.

Group will be open and (depending on eventual number of participants) will aim to have participation from medical and equipment providers.

Please respond if interested as would like to plan for the first meeting.

That sounds like such a great idea! I have never considered the demands of a Kosher diet with diabetes before. I hope it goes well and you have a great turn out.
