Sweet Life is an online diabetes community that informs, inspires and connects people with diabetes in South Africa. We are here to offer reliable advice on all you need to know about diabetes, support people with diabetes and share that just because you have diabetes, doesn’t mean you can’t live a happy, healthy life.
Whether you’re newly diagnosed or looking to learn more about your condition (Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes), you’ve come to the right place. Sweet Life offers reliable advice to help you live happily with diabetes. Have a question? Ask us and we’ll get our experts to help answer.
We’ve created a series of helpful articles about diabetes. If you have a question that isn’t answered on our community blog, just ask and we’ll get the answer. All the information we share is medically accurate but should not replace a visit to a healthcare professional. We want to help you to live your best life with diabetes: sometimes that means going to your nearest clinic or doctor, as we can’t advise on specifics.
As your South African diabetes community, we also like to share helpful links and resources so that you can learn all about diabetes. Learn more about the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes symptoms.
Don’t forget to read all the past issues of Sweet Life diabetes lifestyle magazine (including the latest issue!) right here. You can also read or download our free diabetes cookbook, full of inspiring recipes for diabetes-friendly meals.
