How can my family help me cope with type 2 diabetes?


Create awareness and a support system with your friends and family. Teach them what it means to have type 2 diabetes and to understand the risks and what you are going to do to get better. Include them in your healthy habits such as learning to cook a new nutritious recipe together, exercising together and going to bed earlier as a family. Creating healthy habits together not only helps to support you during this time but also helps to lower their risk of developing the disease in the future.
