This week is my 40th diabetes anniversary. I was diagnosed during the county fair so it’s easy to remember. It was pretty classic systoms; boy who pees alottttttttt:) My mom knew right away that I had diabetes (my dad also had it) and convinced the nurse, who thought she was an overly concerned mom, to let me see the doctor. After seeing the doctor, I was sent to the hospital (not before one last hurrah at Dairy Queen before the trip…funny but, good memory.) I spent the next week in the hospital.
First Insulin - Lente and Regular - twice a day
Testing - Urine (using test tube, a tablet, and a certain amount of urine)
Diet - Exchange - 2 bread, 3 meat, 1 fruit.
Diet Soda - Tab
Here’s to the next 40🍻!!
