"So I have been diabetic for 60 years. With all the technological advances that have occurred for the treatment of diabetes, the management of your diabetes still remains the same. What do I mean by this? The three major components for successful diabetes management are: (1) Understanding your insulin requirements; (2) Realizing that you are an individual and what you put in your mouth affects you only. The effect may be different then other diabetics or even what your physician tells you. Understand the effect food has on your diabetes; (3) Exercise, essential for all aspects of your health, diabetic or not.

With all the technological advances, CGM, glucometers, DNA insulin, etc. Your diabetes care still belongs to YOU, so OWN It!"
