Diabetes education reduces anxiety

Anxiety is fear of the unknown, and T1D can be full of mystery and, therefore, stress. The better you understand diabetes, the less anxious you’ll be. Diabetes education can help you know what to expect with T1D, so you don’t worry so much about what might happen in the future.

Diabetes education gives you confidence

The more you know about T1D, the more confident you’ll be that you can take care of yourself. Diabetes education can help you feel like you have control over diabetes, rather than diabetes having power over you. The more you know about T1D, the more confident you’ll be you can handle whatever it throws your way.

Diabetes education gives you hope

Having hope things can get better is so important for people with diabetes who are struggling with stress and anxiety. Diabetes education is a key to hope because it shows you how to manage your diabetes and gives you the confidence you can do it. It helps you understand how diabetes treatment works and how to make it part of your life. Diabetes education can give you hope you can manage T1D with confidence and less stress.
