Things I found out being Type 2 Diabetic for 28 years.
Things I learned in 28 years of diabetes
No one knows what causes Diabetes, Type 1 or Type 2.
Sugar does not cause Diabetes
Obesity does not cause Diabetes
Diabetes is many diseases under one title, the symptoms are unregulated
There is no cure for Diabetes Type 1 or Type 2
Everyone is different so don’t compare to other people
Diabetes is a progressive disease It gets worse with time. In some people
slower than other.
A1c’s can be cheated. You can have a blood glucose level of 350 mg./dl
several times during a 3 month period
and still have an A1c of 5.2%
There is no one diet, right for everyone.
Exercise is least efficient in burning calories
Don’t eat them to start with is much better
I won’t die if I don’t change my lancet every time I test.
I don’t have to use alcohol wipes
I can reuse syringes
I can reuse reservoir in my pump many times
I can reuse the tubing on my pump, if I want to do a quick change.
The more I test and correct the lower my A1c will be.
Knowledge is the basis for treatment of Diabetes
Cost of Diabetes treatment increases every year
