Learn to live with Your Diabetes Type

Transcript :

Shaurya: There are a few things that become a part of you; living it up is one of them for me. I am Shaurya. I am 14 years old. And, currently, I'm studying in grade 9. My parents found out in 2008 that I have Type 1 diabetes.

 

Speaker: So, as parents of a child living with diabetes, we thought our lives would be more alert, careful. I remember when we first tried to give him insulin and do his blood sugar test, he was like, "Why can't I do it myself?" And, from that day onwards, he has been doing this.

 

Diabetes and Insulin: Shaurya leads a very normal life. Now he does his diabetes test and insulin all by himself. We lead a very disciplined life.

 

Shaurya: I have been playing badminton and table tennis for a few years now. My friends and family are very normal around me. I have never been treated differently. I'm just like any other guy next door. I love playing sports. And, just like my love for PS4 and running is normal, living with diabetes is my new normal. So, Diabetes Type 1 or Type 2 doesn't matter; it's my Type.
