Simple things every diabetic needs

Today I wanted to go over some things that every diabetic needs or could use on a day to day basis. Although this is catered to type 2 folks, a lot of these can apply to type 1 as well! 

These are items that all of us should keep on your person. Most of them are no-brainers, but it doesn’t hurt to highlight them.

KEY POINTS

Medication 

I know it’s obvious but you’d be surprised.

Glucose Meter

Especially when you’re just starting out you may need to check your blood sugar in case your body is tricking you into thinking that it’s dropping too low when it’s dropping to a normal level.

Journal/App

  • A journal is great to keep track of your numbers. It helps you to see where you’re consistent. It’s also helpful for your doctor as well.

Hard Candy and Juice

  •  Let’s face it, life happens. Unfortunately, your body doesn’t stop for that. Food is our fuel, our gas for our cars. What happens when a car runs out of gas?

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.
