D-Blog Day!

D-Blog day is important! It is time to educate, listen up. D-Blog day is a chance for me to say the six things I want you to know most about diabetes.

No matter how much I exercise, I still have to take insulin... This may be my biggest diabetes pet-peeve. People with type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease, must always take insulin. We need this to stay alive. It is not a cure. NOT A CURE!! No matter how many HOURS a day I exercise, I still have to have insulin...

There are different types of diabetes...I have type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease. My sixth chromosome is altered, this gives me the genetic predisposition to develop type 1 diabetes. I did. There is nothing I did to cause type 1 diabetes, there was nothing I could do to prevent it. Here I am.

The Diabetes Online Community is strong...We have loud voices. We will write stand up for what we believe in and we rally around each other when there is sadness.

We are trying to find a CURE...and we are serious about it!

No matter how hard I try, things still go wrong...I spend a lot of time on my diabetes care. No matter how hard I try, I still have random highs and lows. Technology is making things better, but things still happen.

Don't feel sorry for us...We want you to be educated, but don't feel bad for us, we are strong and determined.

Hope is in the CURE!

Great post, Nikki! So awesome to see so many #dblogs out there today, just hardly enough time or eye-power to read them all. Thanks for being a part of it, and I'll look forward to seeing more on less-crammed blogger days. See you around the DOC!

Yes, Diabetes does suck! Love your blog. My dad passed away due to complications from Diabetes - but he never exercised - he never had the energy to exercise. It was like a Catch-22 situation. I was supposed to go see him over summer, he lived in Asia, but changed plans to go see him during winter break in December due to unforeseen circumstances. He passed away in Nov - one month before my trip. Diabetes sucks! Folks, go see your parents where ever they live while you still can!!!

Diabetes is a disease which is painful to the patient in the sense that there are many food/diet and lifestyle restrictions.But provided you abide by them you can feel much better.Exercising is all very good for the body.

The online community is strong which is a great help.A support group can make a huge lot of difference to the patient.

Yes diabetes truly sucks!!! I was diagnosed in 1996 with Type II. Treated it with pills. My diet? Well, lets just say I'm still a fan of pizza.

In December 2010 I was finally put on Insulin - keep in mind, I'm 150 pounds at my heaviest, usually between 142-148, so I'm not obese. But I'm not a vigorous exerciser and that's probably much of the problem.

Yesterday, I didn't eat much. Well, the payoff was a glucose level of 53 this morning as I woke at 7am with a killer headache and the shakes. Its a wonder I woke up at all!! I suppose 53 is better than 400, where I was 3 months ago.

Nice blog. Keep up the good work.
