About this Group:

This group is for anyone who is in some way affected by Diabetes. Past, Present, or Future... You or a loved one! Come join! We all know that ONE of the many causes of Diabetes is weight... Why not talk about it. I was shocked when I didn't see a group on Diabetes because it is one of the largest weight related diseases out there. So lets come together, share our stories, and help each other as much as we can!
