The Canadian online survey of nearly 400 teens and young adults (ages 14 to 24) with type 1 diabetes found that stigma is pervasive. Nearly two-thirds reported feeling stigma because of their disease. And feeling stigmatized was linked to a twofold higher risk of poor blood sugar management, the study found.

Stigma in People With Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes Abstract. IN BRIEF This study quantitatively measures diabetes stigma and its associated psychosocial impact in a large Design and Methods. Questions about diabetes stigma were included in the dQ&A Market Research quarterly survey that is.

Many people believe that you can potentially “outgrow” diabetes, that Type 1 is considered the “bad type of diabetes”, and that diet alone can manage T1d. On top of which, there is a stigma surrounding individuals with diabetes that need to inject insulin or test blood with a glucose monitor in public. Some common stigmas related to type 1 diabetes include the belief that you can “outgrow” diabetes, it is considered the “bad kind of diabetes” or that you can manage the disease by making lifestyle changes. Empowerment of people with diabetes means integrating diabetes with identity.

However, others’ stigmatization can influence it. Although diabetes is so prevalent among Iranians, there is little knowledge about diabetes-related stigma in Iran. The present study explored diabetes-related stigma in people living with type 1 diabetes in Isfahan.

Such associations can also affect the stigma experienced by people with type 1 diabetes, due to public misunderstanding of the different conditions, and the tendency of many media outlets not to differentiate between diabetes types. Clash Among Comrades Another source of stigma for people with diabetes comes from potential allies: Infighting can occur among people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Some people with type 2 feel as though people with type 1 diabetes do not want to be associated with them, says Cornell, because they didn’t “cause” their diabetes.

76% of people with type 1 said they felt stigmatized, compared to 52% of people with type 2. 83% of parents of children with type 1 reported feeling stigmatized, much higher than the 74% for type 1 adults. This 61% of people with type 2. In fact, studies show more than half of Americans with Type 1 and 2 diabetes feel others blame them for their disease. A staggering 83 percent of parents of children with Type 1 feel the public blames them for causing their child’s disease.

Diabetes-related stigma is a negative social judgement based on an aspect of diabetes or its management that may lead to perceived or experienced exclusion, rejection, blame, stereotyping and/or status loss.

Type 1 is more common in children, but thanks to the rapid increase in obesity among younger people, tragically this age group is also now developing type 2 diabetes.

Although insulin resistance has been described as being relatively mild, it has been estimated that 20% to 40% of these patients will have glucose intolerance or type 2 diabetes mellitus by the fourth decade of life.58,265,343 Conversely, premenopausal women with type 2 diabetes appear to be at increased risk for PCOS.

  • I love this! Such an imaginative way to think about diabetes. Not only that, if you are open to the community, imagine all the friends and interactions you’ve had that you would’ve never had without it. I’d love to get involved with the type 1 community but I have no idea where to start. As a teenager I was the same way as her, stubborn with my independence. But opening up to the community makes this so much easier in many different ways.

  • What you did not know is that Diabetes type 1 has many possible causes.
    In the following case below, it’s Viral.
    In Veterinary a common disease causing Type 1 diabetes is BVD. It’s viral. It’s already established that BVD causes the same pancreatic lesions as in Juvenile Diabetes. See below article Summary.
    Four Japanese black cattle and four Holstein‐Friesian cows were diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. Based on intravenous glucose tolerance tests, all these animals were believed to be insulin‐dependent diabetics. Moreover, bovine viral diarrhea‐mucosal disease (BVD‐MD) virus was isolated and mucosal lesions and diarrhea were recognized in all cases. There was no genetic relation among the affected cattle. The breeding places of these cattle were different to each other. Therefore, it is suggested that BVD‐MD virus induced the diabetes mellitus.’

  • There is NO DOUBT that Diabetes is LINKED to a state of deficiency in MINERALS. This is just a normal Phenomenon of Homeostatic IMBALANCE.
    * The trick here is to found out whether this deficiency and imbalance is caused PURELY by dietary deficiency, or by TOXINS that MAY act as Nutrient Blockers or Robbers….
    * Toxins in Biological, Physical, Chemical or in Radiological forms can all Interfere with human minerals and also Cause Deficiencies….
    * Lack of vitamins and or enzymes can interfere with proper mineral conversion and Bioavailability…
    * Lack of Beneficial gut Microorganisms can affect mineral and vitamin production and Bioavailability.
    * Intestinal Gut integrity, or a leaky gut will affect Mineral
    absorption capacity…
    * Underlying illness or Infections will affect vitamin and mineral biovailability….
    Each person with the Disease should be considered as an INDIVIDUAL case…
    * Its already well established that there are many different Diabetogens capable of triggering the disease,,, like sugar, fat, Chemicals, viruses, fungi, intestinal worms, etc, and also mineral deficiencies in the absence of these…
    * Addressing the potential presence of Toxins,, Restoring Optimal Gut microorganisms,,, Healing the Digestional track,,, and natural Vitamin and Mineral supplentation… Would be a reasonable Solid Strategy to tackle any Chronic Disease, while at the same time avoiding Any foods, medications or substances that may act as anti-nutrients…

  • Great vlog Jen! It’s always nice to see how other T1Ds deal with blood sugars and eating throughout the day. You did a great job showing how we are CONSTANTLY thinking about balancing food, exercise and insulin. Also, love Beryl haha ��

  • Hello. I am James from Norway. I wish to narrate how I was completely healed from Diabetes type 2 via a naturopathic herbal method.

    My mom had suffered from diabetes Mellitus and which had resulted to her early death when I was toddler. I have also lived to have suffered, unbeknownst, from this terrible ailment in my youth age, and of which has resulted to several health complications I had experienced in my life time. My right hand had been amputated at twenty-three, at the worsening of my predicament, in which was when I had first realized I was suffering from this debilitating disease. I was thus, placed on an insulin medication as I also had maintained a healthy diet and regular exercises. This mode of treatment had persisted a long time without any rightful hope for a healthy personality in the future. I was dying piecemeal, and of all qualities I had desired for was to become a normal person again. I prayed and never had stop believing Providence was preparing better opportunities on my behalf.

    It was during my endless search for a positive remedy for my condition that I had stumbled upon the marvelous herbal works of Dr. Harry Obiego and his everlasting motive in eliminating all viral diseases naturally. This African herbalist of whom I had realized was also a natural healer and activist of the herbal works Dr. Sebi. I was very relieved at receiving this piece of information as I was very tempted to contact this African natural healer Dr. Harry Obiego in relation to the betterment of my condition. I had given this herbal doctor every piece of information he had needed to save my life and I was highly marveled at his generosity in wanting to help me attain a normal life again. I had followed his herbal recommendations of which after a few weeks I had soon to start seeing good changes in my health life. It was too real to be true, but it was as when I was later diagnosed to be un-diabetic.

    This miraculous change in my health life had occurred few months ago and I am very much as pleased to share this piece of information every moment because it means so much me as to be healthy again, and I know inwardly, that it would also mean so much to other people who happen to be suffering from this disease and would also prefer a normal life too. I wish to use this message to give confidence to those who would by chance happen to come across this information to be hopeful and find a confidant like Dr. Harry Obiego in overcoming their health problems. You can be healthy today for a healthier tomorrow by reaching this good herbal doctor for help and assistance. I would also encourage this piece of information to be shared among friends and loved ones in order to create a positive awareness.

    You can reach out to this herbal doctor directly via the detailed means below:

  • Debemos aprender a preparar nuestros alimentos para prevenir y tratar la diabetes, dejo aqui la infomacion correspondiente

  • Hi, loved this as usual. What insulin do you use in Omnipod-I use Fiasp pre meal & Tresiba long acting. & my beloved Libré here in France free. I use UK LO-DO wraps about 2gCHO with chicken slices, squirty Marmite, coleslaw, macedoines & cherry toms-4 Fiasp. Also bought but not tried Konjac Root Spaghetti, apparently no carbs-just normal Bolognese drain the Pure Spaghetti & heat for a couple of minutes. DO have ‘my fitness pal’ but not used it-seems a bit prescriptive & I don’t do prescriptive & think I need to premium edition to scan. Wanted to check some mint sauce since had roast lamb slices, wedges & salade & the sauce & sugars went crazy needing extra Fiasp & Tresiba for 13.9 & still into the 8’s in the morning. Suspect the mint sauce. Tho’ Libré HI was actually 8.7 with a blood check. I have mood-swings according to blood-sugars & Derby County Football Club results! As a psychotherapist I do know how to change my mood sometimes with the help of our local produce here Entre Deux Mers! ����❤ Thanks again.

  • Although it is true that Diabetes type 1 may have several different triggers, is is clear that the immune system is compromised meaning that the body’s normal defense system is compromised and that nutritional deficiencies are prevalent. When the immune system is down, pathogenic microbes proliferate such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and helminths (Worms), causing an even greater state of Nutritional cellular deficiency. It was shown that many types of microbes and parasites produce and release specialized Proteins and Vesicles that can communicate with, infiltrate human cells and even change cellular DNA. Auto immune illnesses that attack its own cells are actually attacking these intracellular foreign molecular substances, intracellular parasites, or intracellular chemicals. The body knows what it is doing and is trying to avoid total invasion of pathogenic Parasites and their toxic Secretions.
    Almost all Chronic diseases is linked to a compromised Host defense, nutritional deficiencies and Increased Pathogenic/microbial activity. A recovery strategy MUST include a natural antifungal, anti helmintic, anti viral and anti bacterial Concoction of RAW herbs. Followed by Hot concentrated herbal & Seed teas. Followed by green Salads, green smoothies. Followed by largely a Plant based diet. Followed by mild exercise, adequate rest, and frequent skin exposure to direct sunlight.

  • So Valocardin or Carvalol cause Diabetes. Skim milk might show that the person has Goiter, which is not visible otherwise, which in turn could be due to Carvalol. Back in the times Carvalol was very popular drug that people were using as a pressure medicine and relaxant. In any case, it is not recommended to use.

  • I know what you mean about developing a destructive relationship with food, I went to that place very quickly after diagnosis. Food became so negative, always causes a rollercoaster ride that makes you feel ill or like a ‘bad diabetic’ then combined with the need to constantly snack (over-eat) on carbs to prevent hypos. I ended up in a very messy negative place. I dont think this is addressed at all at hospital appointments, very lacking in mental/emotional advice and support. Just all about the charts!
    Its taken me 15 years to get to a place where i can finally say I enjoy food again, and understand it. We’re in a committed fulfilling relationship now! haha.
    Great video showing the reality of constantly forward thinking about food/exercise/insulin. We should all get tshirts that say ‘All the thoughts, All the time’!!

  • I exactingly adopted it. And it worked for me personally. I could not contain my joy as I discovered that my average PP sugar level was lowered to One hundred forty.

  • Thank you for this!!! I’ve been trying to find such a simply breakdown video for my son who is type 1 and my family members to understand!!

  • That good video. Living with diabetes is a torment. but I managed to stop this disease following this guide: thebigdiabetes-lie. com (Google it)
    It is a natural guide. that helped me have a better quality of life.

  • this is a great information shown in an animated way. We need to understand more of diabetes from real doctors through their experiences. You can check out Dasman Diabetes Institute Kuwait or DDI videos on youtube to gain extensive knowledge on the subject as whatever they talk is based upon their research based studies.

  • When you say illness or disease…it’s all fall down to your faith about it.. seriously if you have faith you can manage or control any disease you have or illness you have, fine. But if you deeply strive for cure you will definitely get it.. determination and the ability for you to explain your situation or illness to the right person and change your sadness to happiness..

  • Hello friends. there’s something perfect for you on my channel. now you can get rid of diabetes.

    You can follow my channel. Don’t forget to take a liking to my video.

  • Good to explore the topic of awareness and visibility thank you.

    But saying: “Type one diabetes strikes you out of the blue usually in childhood or youth…. It afflicts younger people.” Wrong. Why do “experts” keep saying this skewed claim?

    Adults are newly diagnosed with Type 1 as much as younger people. Modern studies indicate around 5-10% of Type 2 diabetics are actually autoimmune diabetics who have been wrongly diagnosed. People getting the wrong treatment, and wrong advice, because so many keep up this myth that it’s unusual to be diagnosed as an adult. It is not. Get up to date with your wording, please.

    “What was really surprising in our research is that nearly 50 per cent of type 1 diabetes cases occurred in adulthood and over 40 per cent occurred after the age of 30 … Although type 1 occurs with the same frequency in adults and children, it can sometimes be hidden in adulthood by the sheer number of type 2 cases.”

  • IN Short:

    * It appears that there is a strong link between ‘Oxidizing Bleaching Agents’ and Diabetes.*

    My Gosh… I actually dont know where to start and where to stop….

    However I’ll try to say it all in 1 paragraph ok!

    3 Main sources of contamination are:

    1) Drinking Water (such as Chlorine, Chloramine, Bromine, Chlorine dioxide, Ozone etc…)

    2) Food (and drinks) (bleaching agents are very common in the food industry such as Chlorine dioxide, Sodium ChloritTe and many others. White flours, white salt, milk, white sugar are contaminants. Meat such as chichen and beef etc are often disinfected with ‘Sodium ChloritTe’ a powerful bleaching and anti-microbial agent.

    3) Household disinfectants such as washing powders, Bleach, soaps and many others.

    These ‘Chlorine’ based chemicals are highly oxidative, water soluble, corrosive and readily react with organic compounds to form TOXIC by-products that are capable of accumulating in cell membranes.

    * Apparently Blood levels of these TOXIC compounds accumulate much more easily when exposed VIA the SKIN for example via bathing, washing or breathing in, than via direct oral consumption..

    Alloxan, a ‘white Crystaline substance’ is ‘1’ such toxic compound and basically once the body breaks it down, it is simply REABSORBED back into the original substance again. (It’s an equilibrium chemical reaction).

    This is all for now!!!

    Bless YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  • Here’s a complete guide on diabetes, diabetes types, diabetes causes, diabetes risk factors, diabetes symptoms, and how to cure them.

  • I love this!! I’ve been type 1 for 15 years and I love to be able to help others with type 1. I have my own instagram page revolved around Type 1 called t1d_page if anyone wants to follow it, it has memes on there and also my personal experiences. We shouldn’t fight this condition alone but together ������

  • Love it except for the constant use of “diabetic” to describe a person with diabetes. She says over and over that language has power put the person first.

  • I have been looking for a lot of information about it by my parents and my uncle who also suffer from diabetes and they currently obtained a lot of information through this link and with 24/7 support and also how to eat properly and much more information, the truth very happy with that. Greetings to all

  • Nice Video! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you tried Patlarny Diabetes Ruins Principle (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good exclusive guide for destroying diabetes minus the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my buddy after many years got great success with it.

  • This is a good presentation. I have had diabetes, type 1 for 35 years and definitely experienced diabetes burnout and the rest of it. This presentation and its ideas, should be given to (sold to) the medical field diabetes education services that are provided at hospitals and insurance companies (HMO’s) as a way of changing the thinking that most people have when they are first diagnosed. Congratulations Lucinda, you can turn your ideas into an effectual way of saving the quality of our lives.

  • Really enjoyed watching your video and seeing the choices you made as far as food and how to dose for different kinds of meals. I’ve always noticed that too when the food I’m eating has more fat in it I’m going to suffer later but then other meals I sleep at night a lot better because my sugars aren’t spiking. Sometimes it’s easy to forget about fat since it’s not part of the carb count but it definitely does have an effect on point big hugs for you!

  • I don’t really consume carbs at all maybe 20g total a day all from vegetables. I feel great my BG hover around 4.16.1 mmol/L all day. Hypos in the low 70s which in reality is not a hypoglycemia state. I feel great about it after 4 months of this diet and normal BG my diabetic eye problems decrease. I had autonomic neuropathy in my eyes and double vision. My HbA1c mostly all of my life was between 6.0 to 6.5 and I still developed mild complications!! The diabetic medical recommendedations are definitely not geared for long term survival. I seriously recommend people try a low carb diet your body will thank you! Dr. Richard K Bernstein is great and he help get true normal BG. He has a YouTube channel and book with detailed instructions. He is a T1D for 73 years complication free. He was able to reverse stage 4 diabetic nephropathy with normal blood sugars and prevent them from returning!

  • Nice, quick moving vlog Jen. Nice too see the thought processes you think about. Watching any food related vids usually tells me that I really should eat more veg, i have way too many high carb meals needing big boluses but damn I want those haribo right now

  • Hello jen. I am type 1 diabetic and wanted to go on the dexcom cgm however my consultant said they dont do it in the uk still. I live in north London can you give me a update if dexcom is avaliable here

  • Loved this one, channeling your inner Miranda? The comments about split bolus doses and fats something slowly learning. Thanks for fun vlogs.

  • Bro this thing is no joke. When I got diagnosed, I had a bsl of 750 and was slipping in and out of consciousness. And I’ve had a time where I’ve had my blood sugar at 21!, i could only see black and could barely hear. Lucky I didn’t have to go to the er for the millionth time

  • It’s similar to BVD disease in cows. Farmers don’t tell the public about it. BVD is Bovine Viral Disease causing type 1 Diabetes in Cows, Pigs, etc… Once detected, the animal is immediately removed from the herd and killed.
    Type 1 diabetes has many possible causes for example: Viral, High fat diet, High sugar, Chlorine-based Chemicals, and Various others. Bleaching agents in the food industry, (in milk, sugar, Salt, flour, etc) like Chlorine Dioxide are known to cause Type 1 Diabetes.
    Detoxification and Nutrification protocols including Raw root Herbs, Sweating, Saunas, Vit C, Green Plant Smoothies, Direct Sunlight exposure, And a whole food plant based diet, can significantly alleviate and controll Type 1 Diabetes.

  • You can now get proper relief from the symptoms related to diabetes like tingling sensation in the soles and palms, weakness etc by using wonderful kit from Chandigarh Ayurved Centre. It is very effective and totally Ayurvedic. You can now buy it online also.

  • Great video, thanks Jen! Calculations, considerations and all that darn counting makes us the most proficient multi-taskers the world has ever seen, I’m sure of it.

  • And now I want to eat all the things. And also immediately going to the shops right now to get me some of that alpo yogurt. Like Stat. Great video so well presented, thanks for this fab content and major shout out to Beryl for living her best life!!!

  • Love the pro tip in the comments…I’m recovering from eating disorders and living with T1D, and it makes me cringe when people ask, “can you eat that?” ��

  • 1. Fab vid as always
    2. How good are those alpro yogs!
    And 3. Love that you call your painting Beryl, that’s what I’ve named my pump!
    Thanks so much for the awesome content, j x (type1jenn)

  • I rebelled against the idea of counting carbs for so long because when I was first diagnosed 30 years ago, I was put on a very restrictive diet. Only a certain number of calories, carbohydrates (divided into categories of “starch”, “veg,” and “fruit”), protein, dairy, and fat I could have per meal. It got to the point that I was completely burnt out on counting. As a compromise, I was put on a sliding scale based only on what my blood sugar was doing. It kept my a1C down, but I was having a LOT of hypos. Finally, my current endo had me sit down with a nutritionist who went over counting carbs, and we established a carb ratio because he wanted me on a pump, but wanted to make sure I could handle the calculations first.

  • Not certain about the points made but,if anyone else trying to find out how can i stop diabetes try Diabetes Recovery Tactics ( )? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my work buddy got excellent success with it.

  • Honestly I have those thoughts of “is living with this even worth it”. Depression I’ve learned over the years of having type 1 diabetes since the 6th grade is that it fucking sucks, just knowing that you already suck at maintaining your diabetes and going through middle and high school with it, let me just say that TYPE 1 diabetes makes me fucking hate my life, even though my family and friends love me, there’s still that thought that something could happen at any point in time
