What is Diabetes?

Diabetes and Emotional Health

Managing Diabetes Diabetes can have a dramatic effect on the whole person. Diagnosis and management of diabetes is physically and emotionally challenging. The constant struggle to maintain blood sugars within recommended ranges can be stressful for individuals with diabetes as well as their families, friends, and coworkers.

The daily stress of diabetes management can lead to anxiety, depression and feelings of failure and isolation. Support for people with diabetes from their health care team, family, friends and  work colleagues is vital for overall health.
