Dogs 4 Diabetics

Join us at the D4D Nylabone Training Center for the Type YOU Support Group

Everyone’s life with insulin-dependent diabetes is unique.  All face challenges each day in managing their disease.  The large community of  persons with diabetes at D4D have enjoyed the company of others dealing with their disease, even without the common interest in our medical-alert assistance dogs.

D4D would like to open up this community to the public and is therefore developing this support group.  Join us and meet others dealing with the same issues.
