THE BEST OF 2020
When we decided to do a weekly Blog our Number One Priority was to provide our readers with as much beneficial information as possible! As mentioned before, we strongly believe that Knowledge is one of the key weapons in battling Diabetes, and the more of it you can get the better off you are. With that thought in mind, today we are sharing with you a host of places where you can glean more information than we could possibly share with you ourselves.
We trust that one or more of these sites will prove helpful in your daily walk, and perhaps sometimes struggle!, with Diabetes. Hopefully, after enjoying and benefitting from our Blog, someday you might forward us to the following email:
