Sugar is a video that focuses on community people telling their stories about diabetes in a humorous way. It covers people's personal experiences of how they discovered they were diabetic, and the changes they have made to manage the illness. The video encourages people to take control of their illness. It includes educational material presented in an easy-to-understand way which has been developed with help from dietitians, doctors, and health workers.

The video can be used as an educational tool when providing information to Indigenous people about diabetes. It can be used in a group setting, to generate discussion on diabetes and to encourage people to share their feelings and to give them a feeling that they are in control. It can be used to give people ideas on how they can manage their diabetes, using other people's experiences that have worked.
