In the know
Rarely does anyone ever regret an education. Once you learn something, it can’t be taken away. But knowledge about diabetes — and the best ways to treat it — is forever expanding, so periodically updating what you know is important. And just knowing what to do isn’t enough: Actually doing it is what will help keep you healthy. Keep in mind that no matter how much you learn and put into action, your diabetes care won’t be perfect; nothing in life is. But if you familiarize yourself with your resources for diabetes care and education and seek help when you need it, your care will be the best possible.
