Who is in charge of your diabetes?
I take total control of my diabetes and health care team.
 
I let the doctors take the lead but I stay in step the whole way.
 
I have a family member (or other caregiver) who is working with me and my doctors.
 
I prefer to do as much myself as possible.

It feels like the diabetes is in control.
