I am not your typical diabetic.
I was diagnosed as a teenager even though I was athletic and as far as I knew, healthy. I'm now 30, still feeling healthy, still athletic but am a diabetic. For me, diabetes is something I have to live with but I don't let it control my life. By eating right and exercising I'm able to have good control and only the people who are very close to me even know I have the condition.
I'm really interested in learning as much as I can about diabetes in order to stay one step ahead of the disease.
