Hi Diabetes! hidiabetes.com was built with the hope that it can help. That is the simple answer of why we exist. Hi diabetes! is meant to help all those people suffering from diabetes no matter if it is type 1, type 2, gestational or other types. We want to bring an insight on what it means to have diabetes, what is glucose, what are carbs, what is insulin, tips and tricks and much more. Have you wondered if you can still play sports if you have diabetes? You bet! We are here to help you find out how. Diabetics can live a long and normal life. There is just one catch and it is called management.
The diabetes complications not only profoundly reduce the quality of life of those affected, but often, over time, even become the cause of death.The better we manage our diabetes condition the less are the chances that we will suffer from any complications and can live a long and healthy life.
We will try to touch most of the aspects of diabetes to make your life easier in managing the condition. Feel free to post any suggestions in the commentary fields.
So, who are we? Well, it all started from an idea one of us had. Of course a diabetic! Having a discussion with his doctor on the information available on the internet(and there is a lot out there), we haven’t found a lot of personal touches. Yes there are journals from diabetics, blogs, but no mix between them. So the doctor said, why don’t you build a website and we can both write our views on diabetes? So that’s exactly what we did. Now, the team consists of 2 type 1 diabetics and one doctor! Amazing and we are constantly growing!
VERY IMPORTANT! As we write out of our experience, and we consult the doctor for professional advice, YOU ALWAYS NEED TO LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR! Your doctor is the only one capable of administering medication and providing valuable medical advice depending on the condition you have and personalised to your needs!
Diabetes should only be a part of your life, not your life a part of diabetes!
