Dealing with high blood sugar is a pain and it’s scary.
In the back of your mind is the worry of what could go wrong. You need to eat but is what you’re eating helping or not? It’s so confusing given all the conflicting information out there which is why it’s a national standard to get education about it!
Sure, completing diabetes education can improve your weight and decrease A1C by 2 full percentage points (which translates into about 30 mg/dL points drop in average blood sugar). That may not sound like a lot but even going from an A1C of 9% to 8% (dropping about 15 mg/dL points) shows a reduction against all those scary complications you’ve probably heard about.
The issue is about half of people with high sugar never attend a diabetes program! Why? Many counties don’t offer them and those that do, it takes more time that most can afford to attend all those classes. That’s why the Sweet People Club exists: to bring you quality education, access to experts and support at a time that’s convenient for you in this all online, interactive program.

“When I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the Fall of 2019, my doctor recommended I consider adding an injectable to my diabetes medications. The idea of adding ‘an injectable’ shook me to the core. I was at a crossroads. I could choose to do nothing, accept the progression of diabetes as my fate, take more and more medication, and then anticipate the progressive destruction the disease would have on my body. Or I could choose to act in the affirmative, educate myself about diabetes, and take personal responsibility and control of the destiny of my health and well being. I chose the latter.” Continue reading Darby’s transformation & see what other members are saying!
“Hello Sweeties! I am Theresa, diabetes care and education specialist, nurse, and founder of the Sweet People Club.
So many people believe a diagnosis of prediabetes or type 2 guarantees a future filled with gloom and doom, and food so bland that even your dog turns its nose up!
NONE of that needs to be YOUR future! And I am going to prove that to you as both a medical professional and as someone diagnosed with prediabetes. Yup! I am a Sweetie too!”
