Hello, my name is Jeannine. I am now 34 years old and i have had Diabetes Type I since i was 14 so this year is my 20th anniversary. I have always wondered about this and no dr/nutritionist or anyone has ever been able to answer this so maybe one of you has some insight.
To my family and my knowledge no one had ever had diabletes in my family so i was the first diagnosed. The bad thing is that i had become bulimic when I was 14! I had just started high school and was in cheerleading and had pressure to be thin and it was just a stupid thing that i did. It so happens that months later i become very ill, lose 30 lbs in 2 months and am constantly thirsty and going to the restroom and exhausted like never before. When my mom took me to the doctor they found that my level was at 600. From there i started my battle with Diabetes Type 1. Does anyone have any info on relating Bulimia and Diabetes Type 1. Ive always blamed my stupidity on causing this disease. Plese feel free to write and give your feedback..it would really be appreciated. Thanks!
