Jag vet att det är delade meningar kring att byta nålar när en person som hanterar sin diabetes med injektioner. Jag är medveten om att jag som bor i Sverige är priviligerad att få dessa små men ack så viktiga kanyler ”gratis” från min läkare.

Men visste ni att 64 % av insulinbehandlade diabetespatienter utvecklar lipohypertrofier, även kallat fettknölar. Tillståndet är vanligare för Diabetes Typ 1 (76 %) än vid Diabetes Typ 2, men över hälften (56 %) av de med Diabetes Typ 2 har dessa små, ganska så fula, fettknölar.

Det handlar inte enbart om utseende utan även om att kunna minska sina insulindoser och få en bättre hantering av sitt blodsocker.

Efter att jag bytte till pump under några månader för att sedan byta tillbaka till injektioner blev jag en aning orolig över att på nytt börja om och få in rutinen med att byta dessa nålar och även rotera. Men, jäklar vad bra det har gått. Jag började från dag ett att rotera samt byta nål efter varje injektion. Och vet ni vad? Jag tänker inte ens på det idag och det går av bara farten.

I know that there are shared sentences about changing needles when a person manage their diabetes with injections. I am aware that I who live in Sweden, are privileged to be able to get these little but as important cannulas ”free” from my doctor.

However, did you know that 64% of insulin-treated diabetes patients develop lipohypertrophies? The condition is more common for Diabetes Type 1 (76%) than with Diabetes Type 2, but over half (56%) of those with Diabetes Type 2 have these small, rather ugly, fat lumps.

It is not just about appearance but also about being able to reduce its insulin doses and get a better managing of your blood sugar.

After I started to use pump for a few months and then switched back to injections, I was slightly worried about restarting and getting into the routine of changing these needles and also rotating. But, damn what good it has gone. From day one I started to rotate and change needle after each injection. And do you know what? I do not even think about it today and it just goes by the speed.

Do I really have to live with this for the rest of my life? When I went for a run this morning, my sensor alerted

Low blood sugar

It usually doesn`t affect me, because I know my body and I know my diabetes.

But out of nowhere came the thought "Should it be like this for the rest of my life".

Should I always have to hear the alarms that come from time to time, should I always have to think about what I eat, should I always have to walk around with sugar in my purse

Today, I`m tired of this. I`m fine, just thought that I would share this with you ❤️

Focus 🥂 ...

I want to talk about something that might give some perspective.

The only thing we know is what is in front of us right now. That is why it is so important to never take our time for granted and to focus on life here and now.

And also remind ourself what a blessing it is to actually live and wake up to a new day 💕

Don`t let your diabetes become something that creates problems or obstacles that limit your life. There is so much beauty in life! I know it’s not easy everyday but just a loving reminder 💕🤍💙
