A number of national organizations  Nutonen Review also offer support in the way of education concerning diabetes. The American Diabetes Association and the National Institute of Health (NIH) should definitely be on your list of places online to check out. National and local support groups have a great deal to offer you. Their first goal should be to educate you about diabetes as a whole. The second goal should be to help you learn how to manage your diabetes. By joining a support group, you will be in contact with other diabetics, and will also learn additional tips and tricks from them for better management of your diabetes, including exercise, recipes, and meal plans.

The support group offers more than just education. Discussing your condition with people who do not have it can be frustrating. As you meet people in the support group, you will find that you can discuss the condition with people who have vast experience with it. They literally understand what you and your loved ones are going through, and having their ear and their advice can make a vast, positive impact on your life. Don't assume that you do not need a support group. Again, if nothing else, you will learn valuable information and tips regarding how to manage your condition, and how to continue to live your life the way that you want to live it.

Would you be shocked to learn that approximately 20.8 million people in the United States have diabetes? It is a fact, and that is an estimated 7% of the population! Here are some other astounding facts: Of the 20.8 million people who have diabetes, only 14.6 million have seen their doctor for a diagnosis, while 6.2 million people have not been diagnosed. One in every 400-600 children has Type 1 diabetes, and approximately 176,500 people who have diabetes are under the age of 20. And of the 20.6 million people over the age of 20 with diabetes, 10.3 million (roughly half) are over the age of 60.
