If anyone is questioning whether or not a plantbased diet really is the best route for a Diabetic, take a look at the post by my friend @josh_turner1977 made about his blood sugar.
He’s #type1 and has struggled with blood sugar his whole. To the point to where he felt life was hopeless or a period and actually ate in a very reckless way, and has woken to an ambulance at his house more than once — thank god family was around.
He has gone against the advise of his enodo doc and his nutritionist and has embraced a WFPB diet, and has completely changed the complexion of not only his diabetes but his life.
Josh has lost 100 pounds, he’s run a few half marathons and is training for a full, and he’s become a beacon for others with diabetes. All while working a regular job a chemical plant on the river where he’s often required to work 12 hours days, seven days a week.
Josh is NOT a miracle. Results are 1000% typical.
Stop looking at potatoes as bad for you; it’s the fat in the animal foods!!! Google #intramyocellularlipids and watch every video you can find, especially the ones made by @drnealbarnard.
Proud to call you a lifelong friend Joshua Turner. You’re a hero to the people of this country by being the type 1 outlier that you are.
I have made this little poster as it has been two years today since diagnosed with T1 diabetes. Accepting it was and sometimes still is the biggest challenge. Fluctuating from highs to lows, medically, physically and mentally. It is not the end of the world rather than a different way of living. I wish, I was less ignorant before and saved myself the DKA experience. But lesson learned and since then getting stronger day by day. For those, unaware of this condition, please take a moment and read some information. There might be someone close to you that needs your help suppport. Follow the link on my profile for a brief introduction.
There are truly many challenging moments in diabetic everyday life. Moments when you are dissatisfied with a "system" or aid from our diabetes world. For example, when the CGM sensor gives a false alarm in the middle of the night because we are supposed to have hypoglycaemia or #hyperglycaemia . Even if our insulin pump vibrates and beeps because the battery or ampoule is empty or because another blockage has occurred. There are countless moments in a diabetic's life when we are torn "out of life" (or out of sleep) and reminded of our illness. Sleeping on and ignoring is possible - but life-threatening. Repeated counterregulations, new installations and adaptations are necessary. Followed by a new option and renewed action. The diabetic's life is a hamster wheel and outsiders - like parents or partners - are quickly unable to cope. This week I am writing about the "Gyro Gearloose" of the diabetes world: KEVIN RÖHL by #LUMIND . He is Type 1 himself and is working flat out on solutions that will make our lives more pleasant - for us and our environment!

Happy monday morning from my fake plants and me 🌿☕
Today I wanted to be productive and stop procrastinating for once so right now I'm trying to write my letter of intent for the Master's programme I want to study. How can it be so hard to put my motivation down on paper?! 💭✎
Also I'll be hosting a new live show on the radio from Wednesday on, how cool is that, love to annoy people with my voice 🎤📻
However, wishing you all a good start to the week and may your bloodsugar not act as weirdly as mine did the past few days 💙
I had a pretty bad diabetes day yesterday. But instead of complaining about everything that happend I would like to rather talk about your attitude against your diabetes. Of course you have the right to complain sometimes, but I'm so happy that I have a boyfriend who is always understanding and makes me happy no matter what.
He reminded me of my attitude against my diabetes. I am doing enough and that's great! You can't always avoid stuff from happening. And it's your attitude that matters the most in these situations. Diabetes isn't all bad because diabetes made me the person that I am today, it made me stronger, more responsible and organised, it made me aware of how to live a healthier life and I can also see that I am humble and understanding towards others that go through hard times. Not only diabetes wise. Diabetes also made me more confident because I have to wear my insulinpump and my sensor with pride and not be ashamed of displaying my disease. (Still working on that) But most importantly, I have gotten to know so many lovely diabuddies out there like you 💕 And I wouldn't want it any other way ✨
Well that was short lived😡😢. Yesterday I was singing and dancing around because we had numbers in range. This morning I burst into tears when I saw double digits in the 20’s ! What the fuck is going on ! He was perfect when we went to bed ! Nothing changed in bedtime routine last night ! It wasn’t pizza night , it wasn’t birthday party day ! In fact it was a pretty straightforward low carb roast for dinner , milk at bedtime kind of night !
Cannula changed day before , we’ve been doing daily pump adjustments , we finally thought we were there and things were settling . The only thing that changed last night was the heating came on at 4am !!! I’m at a loss and right now feel like throwing In the towel giving up and just saying fuck it ! Type one you win do what the fuck you will you peice of shit !!! The little man doesn’t see this side of me he sees me working out what to do , changing pumps , correcting levels and constantly asking him how he is feeling all with a smile ( albeit a small smile ) but Inside I’m screaming , sobbing , exhausted and broken in not being able to manage my baby’s levels and failing miserably at parenting and managing type one ! 😢. Here’s to another day of protein based food , pump adjustments, injections and constancy checking and nagging from me ! Great 1st day of half term !
I’m off from my real job for 3 days but there is never any annual leave in managing type one for us or for the little man .
Rant over 😠😢 #type1#medicalparents#typeonediabetes#parenting#alongcametype1
Not sure if we are laughing because of the crazy wind & its effect on our hair, or that fact that we both have dead pancreases?? 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ Had the absolute pleasure of catching up with @type1travels FINALLY, now that she has hit Melbourne in her travels around Aus. 🇬🇧✈️🇦🇺 Both of us shamelessly rocking our shirts & ignoring the weird looks we were getting. (Shoutout to @raffael.typeone 😍❤️) Had such a fun day, cannot wait to share more of this beautiful state I call home, with you! 🌞❤️✨🏖🏡 #deadpancreasgang
