Managing Diabetes Distress Tip #3 – Take a diabetes holiday

If you feel completely fed up with living with diabetes, talking to your healthcare team about taking a ‘diabetes holiday’ might help. While we know you can’t completely ignore your diabetes, your healthcare team may be able to give you tips on different ways of taking a safe break from monitoring, or monitoring less frequently, for a short period of time.

If you’re not sure where to start or would like further information on this, Diabetes WA has a team of Credentialled Diabetes Educators ready to answer your burning questions. Their free helpline service is available on 1300 001 880 and is open Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 4:00pm.
