Bernadette Millington
My name is Bernadette Millington and I am 57 years of age. Two years ago, I found out that I was diabetic. Since finding out I have diabetes, I had to make lifestyle changes. These changes have been a struggle mentally and physically. Mentally – as I must constantly plan my daily meals and physically – as I must incorporate exercise into my daily routine. Since my integration into the DSMES program, these adjustments changed from being a burden/task to my natural way of life. The program brought a group of strangers facing similar problems together. Who better to understand what you are facing than someone in the same situation? The program is truly a blessing to diabetic society.

My name is Victoria John. I take this opportunity to let you know how important to take care of yourself if you have diabetes. I have been living with this sickness for the past 15 years and I am in the Arima Lifestyle Clinic where I get to see the doctors and get tests done free. I never knew about HbA1C until I joined the DSMES support group. When I first took the test the result was 1.5 and the doctor explained that it was too high. After talks with other support groups such as dietitians, foot care persons, and others; I am trying to follow the instructions and my HbA1C WENT TO 9.5. Though this is still high, I am trying to control it with diet and exercise. If you have any symptoms of diabetes, get yourself tested. Let your doctor refer you to the Lifestyle Clinic, then join the DSMES group in order to get the support with diet exercise, and just having someone to talk to about diabetes.

My name is Roxanne Ali. I have been a diabetic for over 10 years. I was not managing my diabetes very well. My HbA1C was always high. My routine was to go to the clinic, take medicine and that was it. I was not given advice on the little details. After joining the DSMES group, I was taught how to take my medicine the correct way and time. I was seen by the foot care team and the dietitian. This made a great difference in my test results; after 3 months my HbA1C went from 11.8 to 8. My blood tests now are between 100 and 125. I am in control of my diabetes Thanks to the team's DSMES, I will advise anyone to join.

Hi everyone. My name is David Singh. I have been a diabetic for the last 15 years. I have followed my doctor's advice very well but that was not good enough. When I joined (DSMES) Diabetic Self-Management Education & Support group I was taught the correct method to use my medication. I was taught the importance of reading product labels to see if sugar and other unwanted ingredients were in the product and therefore should be avoided. My HBA1c went from 7.9 to 7.3 within the first month because of advice from Desmond Croker RN, Dip. OHS, BSN MSN CCDE {Founder and CEO} AMCEC. Contact them today you may be making the most important decision in your life as a diabetic.patient. Thanks to Mr. Croker and his team.
