Yes,  there are a lot of those and they are very important. But have you ever stopped to think about the mental energy and emotional effort behind those numbers? Even if your A1C and Time in Range are what your doctor wants to see.

Our guests, Allison Nimlos and Sara Adams are therapists who both live with diabetes. They’ve come together to host a conference all about mental health and diabetes. Stacey asks them about a lot of very common issues and about how to start those conversations.

The conference takes place May 20-21. It’s virtual – click here for more info.
