Learning to manage your diabetes

A government-suggested shift in diabetic education and care from hospitals is changing the way people diagnosed with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes approach their illness. While visits to hospitals for medical regulation and the monitoring of medication, such as insulin, are essential to the well-being of a person living with diabetes, community diabetes education centres (DECs) and support groups focus on teaching individuals how to manage their diabetes on a daily basis.
