I just found out I’ll be moving to Germany in June, and I’m a bit nervous. I’m a Type 2 with “okay” control (6.6 A1C), moving to Erlangen for a fellowship at the Uni there. There are so many questions to think about! Where do I find the food staples I’m used to (like peanut butter, or Splenda) or what do I substitute? How do I find and endo? What can I expect from the endo? How will my diet and exercise habits change (read: very much, most likely)?
Anyone moving to another country is filled with questions, and having a chronic condition like diabetes just makes it more complicated. This is a big event! It will be me, my partner, our daughter, and our dog… much more than just “hop on a plane” and go!
I’d love to hear from members in the Erlangen/Nürnberg area!
