How can I Cope with Diabetes?

Living with diabetes can be hard and frustrating. Sometimes, even when you’ve done everything right, your blood sugar levels may rise. But, if you stick with your diabetes management plan, you will likely see a positive difference in your sugar levels when you visit your doctor.

Because good diabetes management can take up a lot of time and feel overwhelming, some people find it helpful to talk to a mental health professional or others with the condition. Sharing your frustrations and your successes with people who understand what you’re going through can be very useful. And you may find that others have great tips to share about diabetes management.

Your doctor can recommend a mental health professional for you to speak with and may know of a local support group as well. You can also call EmblemHealth Customer Service at the phone number listed on the back of your member ID card or use our Find A Doctor tool to locate a professional in your area.
