So, ive been neglegting writing into this blog, mainly because im not that good with computers or internet so im struggling to get any audience at all. But something happened to me recently which i just had to share about juvenile diabetes.
If you have read my previous posts, you may know that i have Juvenile Diabetes, well ive had it very well under control for a long time, and for some time ive got it so much under control that ive dropped most of my daily injections, i still have to inject the “long effect” or “overnight” insuline, and have done this with many, many, maaaaaaany many many diet changes, excercising etc. But, oh yes there is a but… There was a time when i didnt have the diabetes that much under control, something like almost 10 years ago, my bloodsugar levels were like a yojo, from dangerously high to dangerously low and this kept going for many years. Its not like i did it intentionally, maybe i was little bit careless.
But yeah anyway, awhile back i went to the usual yearly checkups, and after the test and all i was told that my eyesight has started to altering, some blood vessels in my eye had bursted and there is cholesterol (I THINK it was) in my eye. This sounded weird because i have never had anything wrong in my cholesterol values, im very physically fit as in not overweight, and ive always connected cholesterol to overweight or something. Well anyway the thing is, the cholesterol “spots” in my eye is so close to the part of the eye which actually enables your sight, that it cant be fixed with laser surgery because of risk of actually losing my sight. But yeah, really rough wakeup call that visit to the hospital, something which ive learned to hate years and years ago.
The puzzling part really is, that ive had my Juvenile diabetes under control, no, ive dominated it, for almost 10 years, but apparently you really have to pay for the mistakes youve made in the past, especially if we are talking about your health. Well rant over, hope you read and THINK what i wrote and excuse me for the lack of right words in some places (not 1st language english). I do believe that the same principles apply also to adult diabetes or type2 diabetes however you want to call it.
