"We learned how to be aware of blood sugar highs and lows, and how to adjust. Answers to our many questions were informative and very supportive. When you come, you’re lost, but when you leave, it feels as though a light is there. I feel we can successfully live with diabetes."
"Great resource and can help with problems and concerns. I feel I am not alone. It helped to share concerns with others."
"There is so much information to take in, it becomes confusing. Your classes help sort it all out. Nobody can go it alone; we need someone to offer comfort and understanding. I feel like I can help my son become a person in control of his diabetes."
