Help and hope for those with diabetes

Sweet Life has been around for 8 years now, and I’m so proud of the community we’ve grown into. Our website and Facebook page offer help, advice, and a place to connect with other people with diabetes.

This diabetes guidebook is particularly for those who have just been diagnosed. When you’re first diagnosed with diabetes, it feels like you’re the only one living with the condition. We’re here to tell you that you’re not: you’re not alone in this and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
