Today is #WorldDiabetesDay ! Like all these things it’s important to raise awareness, and today’s a pretty good day for it, so here we go. I was diagnosed with Type 1 aged 10. (Type 1 is the autoimmune disease, Type 2 is more to do with lifestyle choices).This is my kit which I’ve had since day 1 and I carry it eeeeverywhere. It’s changed a bit over time, but the job it does is the same: working as a very basic manual ‘pancreas’. Insulin pens and needles: For me, these are used about 7x a day, much more than I used to inject, but I am much more in control for it. 💉 Blood tester: I use this about 7x a day too, to make sure my blood sugar is behaving - a wee prick on the finger and by the power of magic it tells me if I have too much, too little, or hopefully(!) just the right amount of sugar in my blood. Dextrose (sugar): only when I have a hypo, which is where your blood sugar drops below a certain number and you begin to feel a bit shaky, light headed etc. This brings you up (a bit like a sugar rush!) and prevents you passing out. Some people use lucozade, full sugar coke etc. I feel very lucky it is a manageable condition - not always easy! but very much manageable. And I’m very grateful for all the support I’ve had and continue to get from family and close ones, and the NHS: I’ve been very lucky. I hope today you hear a few more stories about others and a wee bit of awareness is raised about T1D. 💉✊🏻🤘🏻#type1diabetes
