National Diabetes Week takes place on 12-19th July and this year’s focus is on mental health and the stigma that can be associated with diabetes.
There are many reasons someone might feel stigma. It can be because they feel misunderstood, judged, blamed or even made to feel guilty about their diabetes. Mentally, this can be a lot to deal with and can impact how someone manages their diabetes. This can have a flow on effect to their physical and emotional health.
We understand that managing diabetes is an inherently stressful exercise and that there can be a stigma that diabetes is somehow the fault of the individual living with it. At MediKane we are committed to helping people with diabetes and prediabetes live and thrive.
