Diabetes Blog Week Day 4 ‘Changes’

728x905

Tell us what you’d most like to see change about diabetes, in any way.  This can be management tools, devices, medications, people’s perceptions, your own feelings – anything at all that you feel could use changing.  OR reflect back on some changes you or your loved one has seen or been through since being diagnosed with diabetes.

I would like to see continued advancements where technology is concerned. This includes improved accessibility for more people. As a society, it would be amazing to see people’s perceptions (& misconceptions) about all types of diabetes, evolve. Education is key here but it’s important to consider where that information is coming from (media).

Since being diagnosed I have:

Done MDI (multiple daily injections) from a vial & then from a pen.

Used 2 versions of an insulin pump.

Gotten a GGM (continous glucose monitor).

Seen advancements even from glucometers that are on the market.

& am being treated off label with medications geared for type 2s to help with my insulin resistance.
