Aims and Objectives

This blog is my attempt to accomplish the following goals:

To Educate and inform
To Engage in Advocacy for issues that affect diabetics – legal, financial, etc …
To Establish a network for diabetics
To Establish a Diabetes Information Centre

I have often heard that the treatment of diabetes is a team effort that includes the patient, doctor, dietitians and related service providers. But my experience has been to the contrary. I had to personally seek out help and advice. Doctors do not provide a complete service and those doctors who specialise in treating diabetics are very expensive and sometimes inaccessible. My goal is to encourage diabetics to take "control" of their future. Everyday we are engaged in a battle to control our sugar levels. So lets take control of our lives as well!
