It is a sad confirmation of a difficult life ahead – learning for the first time that you have diabetes can be very devastating. It is indeed sad news for an older person who looks forward to an easy and relaxed life upon retirement and more so devastating for the young adolescents, in case of Type I Diabetes, who look forward to healthy and energetic lives ahead.
The first few months upon diagnosis can be excruciating. One only has to scan the list of do’s and don’ts in proper diabetic management to be depressed that easily. Many of the older people with diabetes are diagnosed way too late of having Type II Diabetes and already suffer from the complications of the disease. Type I Diabetes, a rarer but a more lethal form of diabetes mostly attacks children, adolescents and young adults. Sufferers of Type I Diabetes have to endure daily insulin injections for the rest of their lives unless some new and more advanced diabetes management procedure come up in the near future
