I'm a type-1 diabetic patient, suffering from diabetes at the age of 19 (since 2005). Suffering from diabetes for the last 8 years, at an young age. At the time, i got diabetes i was in a state of confusion, why did i get diabetes? there were lot of questions surrounded in my mind. Then i started researching on diabetes, i found there are lot of reason for diabetic attack, few are genetic, overweight, stress or leading wrong lifestyle. My parents were even more worried about me, than i was. I was admitted to hospital with high blood sugar, even the diagnostic person didn't believed in my blood sugar levels (FBS:390 & PBS: 410 approx), and he conducted FBS & PBS test once more. From then i started using insulin, started changing my lifestyle, doing exercise regularly, avoiding sugar to the maximum, consuming more fruits & vegetables. For the past 8 years, i'm healthy & didn't faced any side effects from diabetes.But only problem i faced with diabetes is, i'm a software professional roaming on my job roles to different locations in India, some times it is difficult for me to take insulin due to lack of time or feeling shy to take insulin in front of everyone & one more big fact about insulin is, it should be stored in cool location at room temperatures. so, it is difficult to find refrigerators every where & due to above reasons, my father restricted me from going to foreign countries for my higher education & for searching/doing jobs in different locations other than my native place (i.e. Hyderabad). Sometimes i feel diabetes at young age is a curse, restricting to do things.
