Living with Diabetes can make you feel, sad, stressed and burnt out. On top of your life responsibilities, diabetes requires you to think more about eating, exercise and their effects on your blood glucose. You may become burnt out and stop caring for yourself properly. It may also affect other areas of your life including relationships and work.
People with diabetes are more likely to have depression or anxiety, which can increase your risk of complications, if you are unable to manage your diabetes.
Emotional Wellness is vital to staying on the Wellness path. We can help you or your loved one with a variety of issues that commonly affect someone with diabetes.
