Tips for Supporting a Love One


Diabetes Daily posted this piece with tips for helping a loved one who is struggling with diabetes management.  Have a look at it here:  https://www.diabetesdaily.com/blog/supporting-a-loved-one-struggling-with-diabetes-415039/

Since we are all different, and need different levels of support, I'd love to hear thoughts on these tips.  Are they something you'd like your loved one to do for you?  Are there other ways you're supported that aren't mentioned here?  Are any tips something that you wouldn't find helpful?  Have you ever talked to your loved ones about supporting you?
