Living with Diabetes and Blindness

Bid Group Training Materials are facilitated by Pris Rogers at VisionAware.

Diabetes care is almost entirely managed by the person who has it. If you’ve lived with diabetes for any length of time, then you know there’s no negotiating its demands. Day after day, you alone determine when and what to eat and how much to exercise. It’s up to you to remember when to take your medication, how often to check your blood glucose level, and what to do if your blood sugar levels are too high or too low.

Below, you will find links to helpful audio files that cover managing your diabetes with blindness.
