    Loved reading this. Even in New Zealand we have some similarities. (My son was diagnosed when he was 10 – just like look). Thank you for sharing.

    I have been a type 2 diabetic for 13 years. No family history. It’s not progressive and used to be diet controlled up until 5 years ago. I am now living in Warsaw, Poland. I had great control over my diabetes until I moved here in March. It has not been easy to find a diabetes doctor that speaks english. Here it is mid-July and I am finally seeing one tomorrow. It’s not taken seriously at all. I hope it will change here someday. Please, please, please encourage loved ones to take diabetes seriously and to get tested if they themselves have unexplained symptoms of extreme hunger or thirst, weight loss, frequent urination.
