You are the center of your care team. Our mission is to empower you to take charge of your health and live well, but ultimately you are the one in control. Decide what motivates you to make healthy changes in your life – whether it’s exercising regularly, learning to prepare healthy meals, or simply checking your blood sugar regularly. It’s a lot to handle, but know that no one expects you to be perfect. If you start to feel overwhelmed or think you might be suffering from diabetes burnout, talk to your health care provider. Mass General also offers regular diabetes support groups at the main campus and regional HealthCare Centers.
