Comment, like, share this story. Do you LOVE junk food? Tons of people do - especially when we're kids, it's everywhere. And so, getting addicted to sugar is easy. Do you kind of HATE healthy foods like vegetables and fruit? You're not alone. Jamie, up until a few years ago, ate nothing but junk food - all the time - chips, soda, candy, anything she could find that had lots and lots of sugar, or was fried, or processed, or just plain bad for you. It was all she craved. Even though her Mom told her not to eat all that junk food, and tried to get her to eat better healthier foods, she just ignored her and went on eating whatever she wanted. And this went on for a few years, until, Jamie started having trouble hearing. She didn't think much of it, but it got bad enough so that her Mom ended up taking her to the hospital. After the nurse tested her blood sugar - which Jamie hated since she hates blood and needles - she came back with bad news. Jamie had diabetes! It was a diagnosis she did not expect nor a disease she wanted. Her Mom was concerned, but Jamie was just totally confused - she had to learn all about it fast, AND, she had to take medicine - insulin - every single day. So, with a serious fear of needles and shots, Jamie found out that she had to give herself the shots, and monitor and test her blood sugar levels on her own. It was scary, and people would look at her when she had to do it and make her feel different and uncomfortable. But the hardest part of all was that she had to stop eating all of the junk food and sugar and start eating healthy foods. As a diabetic, She had to totally change her diet. And eventually, she got used to her new diet and at making healthier choices for eating and snacking. She even got used to the shots and is really living a normal life - but she does have to take care of herself a little more carefully than most kids her age and manage her diabetes. This is an important storytime to tell and to hear. Everyone's got a story....we want to hear yours!

the truth about diabetes https://bit.ly/2NaGzBh 96% of patients were able to stop all insulin injections and 81% achieved complete relief of painful neuropathy. Groundbreaking research published by the University of Kentucky, University of California and Newscastle University prove that type 2 diabetes CAN be reversed. Blood sugar normalizes... neuropathy pain goes away... Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine have perfected these techniques and helped tens of thousands of their patients end the need for medication and insulin injections 100% naturally.

When I went on holiday I had lucozade like every day and my mouth started getting dry and I was gagging every morning and then on the first day back from school (about a month ago) my mom took me to the doctors and he said it was diabetes, pricked my finger and I was 27! I was confused as I was the only one in my family who has it.I thought it was normal but the doctor said the average sugars were 4-7 then we got shocked and we went to hospital and stayed there for about 5 days straight. Now it’s only been 1 month, but I’m getting used to all the shots and the blood tests are fine to me I just want to say good luck to everyone out there who is living worse than me!

I have Blau Syndrome, that means I have uveitus (dead cells in your eyes that could make you go blind) and juvenile arthritis. I take a lot of medicines each days. I also have athsma. One of the medicine I take for my syndrome is called prednisone, it gives me more adrenaline in my body, I take 5 mg each days. My body has been so used to that medicine over the years that my body doesn't produce any anymore. So if I ever break a bone I need an extra shot of prednisone or else I could die. But I am very lucky since my bones are stronger than the majority of other people's bones. I am soooooo lucky that I am not in a wheel chair or anything. My syndrome is very rare, and I talked to some people that has the same thing as me on the internet and some of them are paralized, in a wheel chair, or can't move some parts of their bodys. My body is good, I can walk normally, do stuff normally, the only visible thing from my syndrome on my body are my fingers, they have been bended since I was born because the doctors didn't do anything until I was 2 yrs old because they didn't know what syndrome I had since it's so rare. I can still write with my fingers and do normal stuff like normal people. I am not as different as normal people. Thank you for reading this^^ it means a lot <3 P.s: If anyone has Blau Syndrome, please send a comment and maybe we could talk~~

Chase Kuchar (5 days ago)
I still eat junk food just in moderation. My blood sugar is usually between 80-150. There are limitations on how often or how much you can eat but you can still have any food you want but you just have to adjust correctly for it. And usually no one really cares if you’re giving yourself a shot or checking your blood sugar, they’re usually just curious about what you are doing. I usually kinda hide when I check my number or give myself shots not because I care what others think, but I know that some people feel uncomfortable seeing blood or needles.

Do the snake diet and your diabetes issues will eventually go away. All it is is fasting 48hr+ periods and having a small window of time in the day to eat all your daily calories. Drinking "snake juice" salt water recipe will make it tolerable with no headaches nor cramps. Here is a testimonial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB0oRBTp-BY

Salla Manninen (6 days ago)
diabetes is not only going to come out of eating junk food or anything like that, of course it can come out of that too but not that easily. It might be from high blood sugar. there are reasons for that how it comes, but you CAN eat junk food, but you have to count the hilihydrates, and put insulin. that much taht it needs. Its maybe diffrend in diffrend countries, but in Finland its diffrend.

This is true but remember, if you’re a T2D, your may have an hormone imbalance and your pancreas isn’t producing enough insulin. Yes, watching your carb and sugar intake helps but it’s genetic and can be just an imperfection issues as a type 1. Type one doesn’t crate any insulin as to type 2 doesn’t produce enough. I’ve had years of hormone imbalances due to stress and genes. I was DX type 2 in 2016. It’s not easy. Just communicate with your doctor and dietician and you’ll be fine.

I have a 5 year old friend called Darcy. When she was 18 months old she was diagnosed with type one diabetes. She does gymnastics at my club. She has an insulin pump that she wears 24/7 and changes it every three days. Recently an infection got into her pump and she was very very ill. I’m so glad that she survived as she says I’m her idol. Share her story NOW

i have type 2 diabetes and when i first found out, i cried, my mother cried and she called to tell the people closest to her. it's not as bad as you think (type 2) because all you really need to do is eat healthy and make sure you take your pills and check your blood sure when prompted, you'll get used to it.
