Setting sail

With the ADA’s standards of care serving as a map to guide you, you can control your diabetes destiny. The sailing may not always be smooth, but if you stay on course with self-care, optimal blood glucose control, continuing diabetes education, and regular visits to and communication with your diabetes care providers, good health and prevention of diabetes-related complications can be your charted destination.

Bon voyage.
