If you love solving puzzles you should look at managing your diabetes as a challenge.
Diabetes care and management is actually a puzzle.
It is comprised of many pieces that need to all need to be sorted out, and put together so that you can see the entire, big picture.
The more pieces involved, the longer it may take to put it all together but in the end it's worth it.
Lay all the pieces on the table when discussing diabetes with your doctor, the pieces are your lifestyle, other health issues and history, and medications.
Your active participation in your diabetes management is perhaps the biggest piece to the puzzle.
Leaving out any pieces will result in a puzzle that is incomplete.
You will not see how beautiful the final picture (life) will be unless you place all of the pieces in their proper place.
