Carb DM provides exactly the forum that was missing for us—a structured forum for education and connection centered around the well-being of the Type I Diabetic family. I can say with absolute certainty that I learn more from parents of children with diabetes than from all the research and reading I do. And my daughter blossomed when she learned that she wasn’t alone in managing this disease. Introducing her to other Type I diabetics has been a gift to all of us. I have attended several of the networking meetings and each one has brought me new perspective on several of the issues I juggle on a daily basis, as well as new friendships and numbers to call when our supply shipment doesn’t arrive, or we need a weekend babysitter. Lectures and discussions centered on school, summer camps, family involvement, new technologies, and ceding control of daily health management to my child have enriched my approach and alleviated some of my battle fatigue. This is a life-long disease, and I feel renewed to meet tomorrow’s challenges, whatever they may be.

I found all of the information very valuable. I feel I learn a lot about how other people manage diabetes and this is very valuable. I am not alone!

Carb DM has provided many great programs that reduced my stress level while managing my son’s diabetes.
