Hi everyone, hope you are well and excited about being part of this new community!
Would be great to know a bit about your journey, so I am hoping the question above is a good icebreaker.
My father is diabetic, so I can start by sharing a bit about his story....
He was on his mid 30s and had all the typical symptoms (weight-loss, dehydration), but he was so busy at work he totally ignored the possibility - despite the fact many relatives were already living with diabetes!
It got to the point was taken (I think he was at work) to the A&E and hospitalised for weeks after arriving with a crazy high blood glucose. I remember visiting him at the hospital and not knowing what was going on.
I remember the contents of the fridge (and cupboard) at my home completely changing when he returned home. My mother got rid of everything that contained sugar and we entered a radically sugar free period, probably out a fear.
That's it! Hope some of you feel like sharing as well
