Diabetes should not be an obstacle to achieving better health – it can and should be used as a prerequisite!!

Almost everything in life can be taken with different perspectives.   One person sees the glass as 1/2  empty while the next sees the glass as 1/2 full.  They both are right — but the guy who sees the glass as 1/2 full is usually a lot happier than the one who sees the glass as 1/2 empty.  The same is true for diabetes.  If you give in to the disease, worry about it all the time  and don’t control it then it will undoubtedly control you and that can bring all sorts of unwanted health consequences and probably make you miserable.  If however you do decide to control the disease then this disease can and will help you live a better and healthier life.  You will eat better, exercise more and appreciate things a lot more than people who take their health for granted  and go through life  eating  wrong , never exercising and ignoring their health.

I have spent a lifetime trying to keep my diabetes under control – so I know the mistakes. It’s not easy keeping diabetes in check  and it’s still and probably always will be a  WORK IN PROGRESS  for me.   I take daily injections, still experiment and learn new things about how to  diet  to keep the disease under better control and last but not least — I am a die hard physical fitness fanatic who has spent a good part of his life doing lots  of exercise and sports.  Hopefully there are a lot of diabetics (and non-diabetics) out there who will  find this blog both interesting  and  HELPFUL!!

I'm a type-1 diabetic which has changed my life for what I hope is the better. My profession - at least what I get paid to do is computers (sysadmin). I'm a life long sports enthusiast and try to practise what I preach when it comes to being physically active. Still trying to achieve better diabetic control by juggling my diet, exercise and injections... As for things that interest me aside from sport -- I like keeping up on biotech research & medical devices and listening to country and western music.
