Mental Health + Diabetes
There is more than just the physical aspects of diabetes management. It can be emotionally and mentally exhausting. Whether you have diabetes or are a caregiver for someone who has it, you should know first that you are not alone.
If you have type 1 diabetes or are caring for someone who does, it is likely that you or your loved one will experience any of the following: stress, diabetes distress, burnout, diabulimia or depression. Sometimes talking to other people with diabetes who truly get it can make a big difference—connect with others at the Beyond Type 2 App.
