helping people with diabetes find community. Diabetes can be a lonely disease. I'm the only one in my family with diabetes. Testing, injecting, counting carbs, testing again - no one in my family or friends can really understand that. But ... there is a place where everyone gets it. On TuDiabetes, I can share my challenges and triumphs and learn from others and they can learn from me. It's where everybody know your game.

My youngest child was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 6. Nine years and four pumps later (longboarding is tough on pumps) he is a healthy and happy teenager who, on a daily basis, grows in his ability to independently manage his diabetes. Diabetes Hands Foundation has greatly contributed to his growth because of the support it offered me, his mother. Receiving advice and gaining perspective from other caregivers, DHF provided a community that kept this mother moving forward one day at a time.

The Great!

weekly contact with members of DHF.

This organization has allowed me to connect with others who have diabetes. This may not seem like a big deal, but it really is. Helping people with a condition, such as diabetes, connect with others allows someone like me to not feel so alone, so isolated. It also provides a lot of helpful information about diabetes management. I know I've learned more about diabetes and how to deal with certain situations from this organization than I have from all of my doctors and educators. This organization is a blessing to anyone touched by diabetes.
