cyclistIt is generally agreed among diabetics and healthcare professionals and policymakers that the best diabetes management happens where an individual gains the knowledge and confidence to play the central role in their own self-management. It should also make a huge difference in maintaining the happy and healthy lifestyle you want.

This agreement doesn’t necessarily make everything run smoothly – particularly when the reality is that PCT accountants and the Treasury have a significant say in what resources will be made available.

But living with diabetes 24/7 certainly offers anyone the opportunity to become the foremost expert in their own care – as long as they have access to the information upon which to make rational judgements.

In this section of the site we offer a collection of resources that may assist in recognising issues, setting personal targets and goals, understanding of what help may be available and thereby help in making those personal decisions.
