Diabetes Helpline: Diabetes Support

Diabetes affects more than 30 million Americans. Diabetes is currently at an all-time high in America. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 2 diabetes is far more common.

Regardless of the type, a diabetes diagnosis can be incredibly overwhelming, and it is essential to find a reliable and robust support system to help you cope with the challenges of living with diabetes. Seeking out a diabetes support group online or a diabetes helpline can be essential to managing your or your loved one's condition. However, many find this to be a challenging step to take.

Luckily, ExtendaTouch is here to help. If you would like to share your own experiences about managing diabetes or learn more about the challenges and successes others have experienced, the ExtendaTouch diabetes helpline will enable you to connect with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges. ExtendaTouch is entirely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of a positive group. All types of people gather to share resources and opportunities that can help everyone live their best life while providing care for their loved ones.

How can ExtendaTouch help me?

Our diabetes network helps connect individuals struggling, or caring for someone with diabetes in order to provide information and support to improve an overall quality of life. The ExtendaTouch provides online tools for its members to share information and support; perhaps even helpful tips and news about:

  • Managing symptoms and side effects
  • Ways to help you maintain an active and mindful lifestyle
  • Healthful eating and dieting
  • Avoiding specific triggers and risk factors

You can feel safe expressing yourself or reading about your most pressing questions about the various types of diabetes. ExtendaTouch is here to assist you in meeting other family caregivers who can share helpful diabetes advice online. ExtendaTouch doesn't provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

My sister was diagnosed with type two diabetes at the age of forty. That disease played a huge part in triggering other inflammatory systems to show up in her life. Cancer showed up in her organs and caused her death at the age of seventy. I was a huge part at her end of life journey.
