The emotional component of this disease is one facet of living with diabetes that both patients and professionals are just becoming more aware of, as it has been ignored and left unaddressed for many years.

Those living with diabetes can find comfort and support from their time spent reading articles, viewing videos and the dialogue that Eliot LeBow easily shares, reassuring them that they are cared about and that they still have every opportunity to enjoy a happy, healthy life.
