The only regular medication I have now is I have insulin with each meal, which helps to deal with the sugar high of your digested food as you consume that food. And I also take Creon.
And that’s because the pancreas has been affected by the growth?
Yes, because the effectiveness of the pancreas is compromised by the disease. There’s less of the pancreas to produce the chemicals in your body to deal with the blood sugar.
So I have to live with diabetes. I take insulin, inject myself before each meal, breakfast, lunch and an evening meal. And then I have at night, before I go to sleep I have another type of insulin which is long lasting, 24 hour cover, and that’s designed to keep all my sugar levels down a little bit, so that the meal time insulin just deals with any spike. So the regime, I’ve adapted to that quite easy.
