Diabetes is a 24-7 condition. A condition that never rests… never sleeps… never takes a day off.
If you have it, it’s something you have to consider when making so many day-to-day decisions– from exercise, to sleep, to what you eat, it always needs to be thought about.
Diabetes doesn’t care who you are, or what you do. It affects people of both genders, young and old.
It even affects celebrities.
While there are a lot of pretty huge benefits to being a rich and famous celebrity, most people would agree that living in the spotlight certainly comes with some disadvantages. It seems difficult to have people watching and examining your every move.
Further, all of that public attention adds an additional element to having diabetes:
Do you keep it a secret, and manage your condition privately, or do you share it with the world? How will people interpret your diagnosis? Will it affect your image? Could you potentially inspire more people with diabetes and raise awareness?
The video below takes a look at some of these questions.
