Lets talk drugs!

In this episode we’re talking about drugs. Not the recreational ones but the basic medication that most diabetics are given when you’re newly diagnosed. Metformin is very common amongst pre-diabetics and those diagnosed with type 2. But what is it exactly? How does it make you feel? Side effects? 

We’ll talk through all of this and what my personal experience with it has been. Remember, I’m not a doctor so be sure to talk with your physician if you have any questions specific to what it means for you. My experience may not be the same as you. Just in case maybe don’t eat while you’re listening to this one..

The Magic Pill

What the Health: The What the Health website has a fact page that lists a lot of information about diabetes. I have not personally checked into this myself so please be sure to do your own research. I am not vegan nor can I confirm that what’s mentioned in the film is accurate for me. At the end of the day, everyone’s body is different and it’s up to you to learn and understand what works for you. If that’s being plant based or not, make that decision for yourself.

My core belief is that you can carve your own path. Unafraid to stand in the gap, I started Healing In Hindsight™ after noticing that there weren’t many millennials of color that I could connect with. Being of black and thai descent, I was diagnosed at 25 with type 2 diabetes. I found the transition into managing my condition difficult. My hope is to have thoughtful conversations about how anyone living with diabetes can thrive by finding a way to manage that fits them.
