Let Me Be 83 – Let Me Be 83 is a movement by the Rivere Foundation. We advocate for an alternative diabetes management regimen, anchored in nutrition and the proper use of insulins, that allows people with diabetes to achieve healthy blood glucose levels. We believe this is an important goal, as elevated glucose levels are associated with complications of diabetes.
