Welcome to FuckDiabetes.com!

Diabetes mellitus: A quote from the Wikipedia.org article tells us it is "often simply referred to as diabetes—is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger)."

This site is aimed at folks who have diabetes, have been newly diagnosed, have pre-diabetes or even gestational diabetes.

Me vs. Diabetes

Submitted by AlwaysHI on Mon, 11/11/2013 - 03:58

Well where to start...I´m 20 now and have had type 1 diabetes for over 7 years.
And at first it didn´t seem to bother me much,until just recently I realized how long I´ve already had it.
And it sure has fucked me over in all so many ways!
I guess my biggest issue isn´t the eating and what not but more the constant testing that i just cant get my head around.Second the mood swings.

Bad Day

I'm just so tired of diabetes. I was diagnosed with Type 2 about 5 or 6 years ago, I've honestly lost track at this point. I was in my early 20s. I remember the asshole nutritionist they sent me to saying "You are so young, you will be back in here in a month telling me its Type 1 and that you've been put on insulin."

Well, I'm terrified of needles, so that was enough initiative for me to drop 50 pounds, get in amazing shape, and go on an incredibly strict diet.

Sick and Tired of Diabetes

Submitted by angelfish17 on Tue, 09/03/2013 - 04:21

Just writing this because I am feeling sorry for myself because I have type 2 diabetes. I often think, why me!? Why do I have to have this horrible disease? Because of this insipid, inconvenient, despicable flaw in my body, I'm not supposed to eat good food, cake, ice-cream, candy bars, chocolate chips, cookies, pies, and the most wonderful desserts are all are off limits to me. I guess fast food is not recommended either. I LOVE fast food! I heal slow and risk losing fingers, toes, arms, legs and eyesight.

I hate this disease so much.

Normally if I have a Chobani Greek yogurt (140 cal, 20g carbs) and an OatFit Cinnamon Roll oatmeal (100 cal, 18g carbs), my blood sugar 2 hours after will be anywhere from 20 points *lower* than fasting to 20 points above.

This morning, that same yogurt and a cottage cheese (90 cal, 7g carbs) shot my numbers from 120 fasting to 178 two hours later.

Having a bad day

I found this site because I googled F*** Diabetes. Today I am simply over T1. My 30th anniversary of this ridiculous condition is coming up and I'm home feeling sorry for myself after looking up various pumps (which I've been recommended to use due to crap HbA1C's for several years). I find the longer I have T1, the more I am sick of it and the less I do to look after myself. I am still reasonably healthy, but can't help but feel time is running out. Before looking up F*** Diabetes I googled diabetes and depression, and saw there's a link between the two.

Hacker finds flaws in Medtronic insulin pumps

Submitted by ragnarok on Mon, 08/29/2011 - 19:37


I've been waiting for this guy to reveal which manufacturer he discovered the flaws on. I'm now even more glad I'm getting an Animas pump instead!

SAN FRANCISCO -- When Jay Radcliffe revealed three weeks ago that he'd found serious security holes in a popular type of insulin pump that diabetics wear, he kept two important details secret: the pump maker's name, and the specific technique he used to hack the device.
The problems he found carry exceptional risks, such as being able to program a special remote control to command strangers' pumps to dispense the wrong dosage of insulin. But Radcliffe said he was ignored in repeated attempts to alert the company to the defects. On Thursday he identified the company -- Medtronic Inc. -- in an effort to apply public pressure to fix the vulnerabilities.
The disclosure raises the risk of attacks on certain Medtronic insulin pumps. But Radcliffe said he hopes that exposure helps fix the problems. He said he tried to handle the disclosure ethically -- by working with the company first -- and felt "there should have been an ethical response (from the company) to that."
