Dustin: How can I help people with diabetes?
Grandma: By learning about diabetes you've already helped. For example, take what you learned today. You may be able to go back and help your mom remember to exercise, control her blood sugar and eat right. Another example of how you can help is to explain to your friends and relatives the importance of exercising and eating healthy foods to lower their risk.
Dustin: Grandma, you know so much about diabetes. I learned a lot. Thank you for taking the time to educate me and for helping me find out more about this disease.
Grandma: We had a good talk, Dustin. Anytime you want to know something ask me. If I don't know we'll go ask someone who does and learn together! Let's go to the hospital and check on your mom.
