My childhood days was so beautiful and energetic. Born in a village.Very naughty boy till the time when I am diagnosed. Diagnosed as a T1D at the time, in upper primary school.
At that time had a bad behaviour of smoking. Just for play and or acting like film actor. After three weak diagnosed.
That was a big shock to my family. Admitted hospital three or four weak, may be BG 600 above , i don’t know actually it was, because that was a new disease. No one have any idea about its treatment, management of BG levels,A1C etc.
After one month my parents consulted a homeopathy doctor. I was under his treatment for four years.That guy reduced my insulin form 10 units to 5 unit and that only morning. Night dose stopped.
So my school days was so painful and isolated. And I also kept a foolish thought in my mind smoking caused my diabetes.Parents have no knowledge about diabetes and they said because of side effect of any medicine caused our diabetes.
I was small in size comparing with my class mates.Life was so depressed and isolated. Felt the feeling of helplessness due to get the understandings from parents,teachers and friends end.
After that the death of that homeopathy doctor, I escaped from the dark years. Consulted a physician and got good dosage insulin and I improved my health. And gradually equal to my class mates.
But during these bad incidents I got a feeling of depression.Took medication for depression and now it is continuing…
Now I am doing my job, taking insulin and regularly checking with strips.
I am giving some points for discussion if anybody interested:
- Why our teacher have not the perfect knowledge of diabetes and the mood swings of kids those who have diabetes especially in developing countries?
- Why our health department and education department giving guidelines to school authorities and parents for handling these special children?
- Why these huge number of uncertified doctors operating?
