Yes, this is Bradley, if you didn’t already know, he has type 1 diabetes and has to inject himself with insulin every time he eats. Some people really don’t understand…and punching his bags full of medication, nearly breaking it…putting him at risk of dying because his sugar levels would have been out the roof…*sarcastic applause*. Anyway, he finds it hard and only a few people truly understand what it’s like and I am trying to make it more aware to people for that reason. Take care, byee!
Type 1 diabetes develops when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin. As a result the body is unable to produce insulin and this leads to increased blood glucose levels, which in turn can cause serious damage to all organ systems in the body.
