Debatable words of wisdom from UK’s oldest pump user
This dog wasÂ inspired to read this story about the oldest pump user in the UK, whoâs had diabetes for 80 years. She’s had quite a life and it’s clear diabetes has never stopped her doing anything. And reading how she used to sharpen her own needles up until 5 years ago was an eye opener.
But he was also a bit disappointed to read her final words of wisdom âafter living with diabetes for 80 years myself, my message to people with diabetes would be this: do exactly what your diabetes physician tells you to do!â Really? Not to learn all you can about diabetes and take control of it so that you can live a happy, healthy life? Just to blindly do what youâre told.
This dog is now a little less inspired and is going to find a hummingbird to chew on to raise his spirits. Meanwhile, what words of wisdom would ShootUp readers share about living with diabetes?
