WhatsApp support groups for diabetics

A little while ago, one of our community members on Facebook suggested starting a WhatsApp support group in Gauteng for people with diabetes. She asked if we would post her number and see if there was any interest… And boy oh boy, was there interest! Since then, a few other cities have started WhatsApp support groups – please see below for the city, the person’s name who runs the group, and their number. You can simply WhatsApp them and ask to be part of the group.

WhatsApp support groups across South Africa:

Please note: These are not run by Sweet Life. They are not run by medical specialists. They are simply groups to offer support about living with diabetes. Don’t ever change your medication without checking with a medical specialist. We’re all in this together!

    There are times we need answers to questions and a support group could be helpful

    • Agreed! Just remember that these groups are not run by medical specialists, so it’s important to see your doctor or clinic for any medication related questions 🙂
