Understanding the human side of diabetes

The findings of the recently-conducted DAWN study (Diabetes Attitudes, Wishes and Needs) tell us that people with diabetes who are cut off from a community of support not only manage their condition ineffectively, but also feel worse within themselves. Networks of supportive family, colleagues or friends appear to be at least as important as medication in relation to the ability of a person with diabetes to manage their condition.
