Diatribe have published some interesting quotes from people working in diabetes care and research. They asked them what their words of wisdom for people with diabetes would be. Apart from the odd one who said “control your blood sugars” which is about as useful as saying “make it stop raining” and always makes me want to hit someone, there are some little gems in there.
My favourite is probably “Embrace diabetes, make it part of your life, become more insightful and stronger for having it, and do not let it prevent you from doing anything in life.” Dr. Steven Edelman, University of California San Diego.
Worth a read if you’re struggling for a bit of new year diabetes inspiration. Which ones do you like?
