S2E01 What is diabetes burnout?

Let's talk about diabetes and mental health - we all need to!

It’s a reality for many people living with diabetes, but what exactly is diabetes burnout, and how can you move through it? Just as importantly, how can you support someone you love who is feeling burnt out… What should you say, what shouldn’t you say? We speak to Type 1 diabetes psychologist Daniel Sher for some expert input.
