What kind of diabetes support do you value most?
Being asked about my mental health
Having someone carb-count for me
Offering to be an accountability partner
Offering to exercise with me
Volunteering to help with insurance phone calls
Not being asked about diabetes unless I bring it up
The kind of support you need can depend on the moment you're in, but people in the CWD community thought that being asked about their mental health was the most valued support for them. (Although it would be amazing to also have help with all of those insurance phone calls! Who else knows the medical device company hold music by heart?!)
All support matters, and people living with diabetes benefit from having a team that helps them on this journey.
