My name is Lucy Ana Krasno and I am 60 years old. I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 1964 after being in a Diabetic coma for three days. I am a writer and have worked in the Medical Field and for different Business Corporations over the years. I don’t know what it’s like NOT to have Diabetes, since I’ve had it so long. All the credit for my care started with my mother and grandmother who were instrumental in my caregiving when I was growing up. I was taught that I could accomplish anything I wanted with Diabetes, and I am still here doing so.
I was born in Argentina and I live in France. I am an Engineer and a globetrotter, I love sports and languages! Pierre and I got married 4 years ago and he is the best T3D I could ever ask for!
Since my work revolves around diabetes I’m very interested in this topic. When I’m either not running my business or spending time with my partner and kids, I’m learning about different kinds of wine from Italy!
Besides being a type 1 diabetic I’m a commercial manager of the professional basketball team Stella Artois Leuven Bears. Basketball, sneakers, and food are my greatest passions. I’m also a participant in Married At First Sight 2021 Belgium.
I have been a type 2 diabetic for over 6+ years now working as a graphic designer during the day and a Postcrossing illustrator on the weekends. I like to listen to songs with poetic meaning and am often lost visualizing them, hoping someday I can be an art director. In an alternate universe, I would like to be a polyglot who happens to be a kick-ass dancer.
I’m a serial entrepreneur from Singapore. I didn’t grow up with diabetes. I got it from stress that lead to anxiety and after that a burnout. I didn’t hide it, it’s also part of my family history. It was hard for me. I live alone and I manage my business, finance and medical health expenses with the support of government subsidies.
I am a Type 1 diabetic blogger, a content creator, writer, personal trainer and in the process of becoming a Nutritionist. The aim of everything I do is to prove that Type 1 diabetics can live life to the full, eat what they love, and have good control of the condition. I do this by encouraging T1s to learn to manage the foods they love with better lifestyle and nutrition choices. I promote a balanced lifestyle, where there is space for both health and tasty pleasures.
I’m a ginger actor and comedian. I am currently studying a postgraduate degree in acting at the academy of live and recorded arts. I was a former maths teacher graduating from Warwick University.I did not grew up with diabetes.
I am from Boston, Massachusetts but I have lived in Mexico since 1998. I am a preschool teacher. I didn’t grow up with my diabetes. Emotionally it was much harder than financially. I went from being an active woman to a shell of myself.
I am a certified personal trainer and nutritionist, author and speaker. None of these things would have ever been possible without type 1 diabetes, which has allowed me to see the silver lining in some of life’s most difficult times and remain grateful.
I have been living with type 1 diabetes for 11 years now! I am a professional dancer and choreographer and the founder of The Diabesties Foundation! When not working on diabetes or dance, you can find me reading, listening to music or writing!
I’m a sophomore at college and I’m majoring in General Biology with a minor in Human Biology. I have two dogs which I love and I’m a vegetarian. I’m the youngest sibling out of five and I love spending time with my family. I grew up with diabetes since I was 11 when I was diagnosed. I didn’t hide it, everyone I know knows that I have T1D, and I think that the people I know are understanding it and it really helped me. Especially when they ask questions to understand better and try to help me.
Hey, I’m Cerise, I’m French and it’s been 5 years since I moved to Montreal, Canada.I moved here to go to university and study business. Now I work in digital marketing. I got diagnosed a few months after I arrived in Montreal, so my diagnosis story is a bit of a wild one. I love cooking, painting, traveling, and trying out new restaurants. But most importantly, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 18. In the beginning, I was only telling people that were close to me.
I grew up with my type one diabetes during my teenage years and I never felt the need to hide it. As I was staying away from my family to continue my college, it was necessary for me to be vocal about my situation. In case if I need any help from others in any emergency situation. With all the ups and downs, my diabetes management has changed a lot over the last 11 years.
