how to become diabetes educator

Hi it’s not all bad when you look around at somethings people have to live with. I have been type 1 for 60 years and have no complication yet, and it’s never stopped me doing anything including flying on the wings of a plane for a big birthday some years ago. I am on an Omipod pump and have been for nearly 3 years after injection for over 50 years. It’s great apart from it means pricking fingers more, but I can stand that as it gives me far more freedom. I have 2 chiI have had diabetes 27 years now and some days are better than others but mostly mad I can’t eat everything without doing insulin and my sugars. As a teen I rebelled lots more and had some hospital stays. Most people who don’t have it don’t understand the frustration and mood swings it can bringldren 42 and 39 and now 5 grandchildren. I had both my children in the 70’s by c section and they are fine. I have travelled to Australia a few times even on my own once. My husband and I are about to do some touring in Europe on a motorcycle . So you see you can do anything. In fact if you watch your diet and bloods you are probably healthier than a lot of people without diabetes。
I just celebrated 22 years. I know celebrating is probably the wrong word, but I am thankful for life. It isn’t easy living with diabetes as my sugars are currently showing. But I am really working on it today and plan to continue as I know why my sugars are out of wack. I learnt how eating right and exercising are really important in dealing with diabetes so it has become a habit now. You can PM me and we can talk, Type 1 for 15 years now 33, I used to get away with so much when I was younger highs n lows were inconvenient but had no lasting effect now a single high or low leaves me exhausted all day (which is most days) I started omnipod 4 months ago which has helped tremendously but I still feel sensitive about my condition probably because my mum died through complications. Just yesterday I cried at a video about the effects of lows. I understand your frustration it’s hard。
One day someone will listen to me and give my product a chance. I know everyone has been mislead on certain products which has ruined your beliefs that there might just be another option. I do not make medical claims, I am not saying Kyani will cure diabetes but I will tell you it can do amazing things,  It’s hard every day! Like today I was so hungry! All day! I haven’t been able to get full. But I know come tomorrow I will pay for today. High sugars, low sugars you never know. But tomorrow is a new day and I will start over and do much better. Until the next wave comes. Good luck dear. You can do this,  I’ve been type one 23 years I’ve had nothing but grief I have a list of complications as long as your arm and all because anyone you talk to doesn’t seem to care. I am doing everything I can to keep control and I get little to no help whatsoever, Type 1 for 30 years! It’s not always easy and can be frustrating. But I have a CGM and that has worked wonders for me. I’m just thankful that though this is a chronic disease, we have the tools and knowledge to live as normal life as possible. Stay encouraged and realize that you’re in control。
I’ve only been type 1 for about 2 years. Still trying to figure things out. I’m kinda dealing with this in my own. But it’s not too hard. Just listening to my body. Taking care of it by eating right and exercising, I was diagnosed with diabetes about a month ago, was told it was type 1 a week or two ago, and just told earlier today that it might not be type 1 yet. Im 31 and active duty Air Force, my life has plenty of ups and downs and I’m willing to talk, You have to remember you are better than Diabetes even on a bad day you can make tomorrow a day to remember I’ve had type 1 56 years still canoeing and climbing and still have a driving licence , all the best。
T1 diagnosed at 18mnths and I’ll turn 40 in 4 weeks I live in the UK have been on a pump for nearly 5 years but still have the same frustrations,  I’ve had T1 diabetes for 20 years now. I am nearly 50. There are good and bad days. It can be frustrating at times to say the least especially when it seems no one understands. I found the DAFNE course (mainly counting carbs) to be extremely helpful in controlling my sugar levels. Please inbox me if you need to,  I’m a type 1 diabetic for 44 years. No history of diabetes in my family. Sent into a coma for a week when U was 20 years old, I’ve been Type 1 for 22 years now and I have to say the past couple years have been the hardest. Sometimes you just get tired of dealing every day. I’m starting to come around again and have a better outlook, but I know how it is wanting someone to talk to that would understand. Friends and family want to be sympathetic but just don’t get it, Yeah… its survival everyday. It’s really hard. I still give in to temptations even today. But we have done this for so many years. We are resilient and we don’t let it define the limits with which we can reach. We don’t let it deter us. You know what, we are super heroes at our own right。
