Diabetes is a lot of work. Aside from the grind of checking blood sugars, counting carbs, and dosing insulin, I use up a lot of mental energy just staying one step ahead of everything.
When I think about doing better and intensifying my diabetes management, I’m instantly overwhelmed! As I mentioned recently, I don’t have enough time with my healthcare provider. There are long stretches of time between appointments where I want additional support, and figuring it out on my own during those times often feels too hard.But as an empowered patient, I want to do more on my own. I just don’t know where to start. I don’t know how to translate what I see in my data into actionable changes. But what if I didn’t have to? What if I could press a button and get back to living life while someone else (someone I trust) does the stuff I can’t seem to figure out (or don't want to)?
