What’s it all about?
Its purpose is to bring people with diabetes closer through the sharing of knowledge and experience, as well as providing important health advice.
Whether you have recently been diagnosed, are having trouble controlling your blood glucose levels or simply want to be in contact with others living with diabetes, DRWF is here to help you.
Our support is not meant to be a substitute for the professional medical advice you receive from your diabetes team but we hope that it will improve your understanding of your condition and give you practical day-to-day tips you find useful.
Diabetes and its associated complications are very serious conditions and only your healthcare providers can prescribe the treatment that is most appropriate for you. You should always consult your physican or Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) before changing any element of your diabetes management.
Members of the Network receive monthly issues of Diabetes Wellness News, quarterly good health pocket diaries and free access to the Diabetes Helpline (for non-urgent medical questions). We hope that through these services, we can provide the inspiration and encouragement, as well as the practical advice, necessary to help people manage their diabetes effectively.
