We’re going through changes…

Today let’s talk about changes, in one of two ways.  Either 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.  Were they expected or did they surprise you?

Hmmmm i think one of the main thing id like to see is a cure, even before i took part in JDRF UK’s CountMeIn campaign at Parliament.

I (at the possible amusement/annoyance of my healthcare team), want to try every possible “cure” & new management method going.

One thing i really want is the artifical pancreas, reading about it makes me giddy at the posibilities for the future in our healthcare then nostalgic for the days when i wasnt Laura with diabetes (i know, i have diabetes but it doesnt have me).

Over the 12 years of being diagnosed, ive seen some amazing break throughs in diabetes like the forms of therapy to meters that dont require you to attend hospital for a blood transfusion.

  1. There has been great improvements for sure. We are lucky to be in our time with diabetes. Thanks for a great read.

  2. My son got diagnosed 18 months ago, and have just started blogging about his time at the start, I feel it’s helping me get things off my chest. I have to say though the Diabetic support he got at the beginning from the nurses in the UK was exceptional. The help and assistance in getting our heads around it, never mind a 9 year old boy. I can already see massive improvements in the way treatment is moving forward. Here is to a cure in the near future
