Dating a man with type 1 diabetes
Socializing, friends, and close relationships are very important to anyone – with or without diabetes.Telling dates about your diabetes isn’t always easy, and how and when you tell them is a personal decision. I have never been shy about living with diabetes, and am always happy to talk about it with anyone who will listen.In my eyes, there is no reason to hold anything back and I want to be very open with the other person.I do my best to educate others so they have a better understanding of diabetes and what’s going on if I have a high or low BG.Most of the Type 1 Diabetics do not have diabetes running in the family.
For example, most people think just because you have diabetes, you cannot eat sugar and have to have a very strict diet and whatnot.
So, I must correct that and give them the correct information and basically reteach them what there is to know about living with type 1. My biggest concern has to be the fear of having a seizure while I am with the other person.
I think that would be scary for both of us, and I wouldn’t want anyone to have to see that. When it comes to dating, there are a few main points I always keep in mind that make for some pretty smooth sailing.
Type I diabetes is the most serious type of diabetes and is also called Juvenile diabetes.
