  1. Very well said, exactly the same explanation as my son's dietician here in Canada. He has type 2 diabetes at the age of 14. Post-pandemic and it runs in the family. Thank you for educating our fellow kababayans. Check how much fiber you need to eat per meal and according to your gender 🙂 Get yourself tested every year!

  2. Hypoglecemia (Low blood sugar) under 30mg/ddl, this is dangerously low, is scary, your consciousness turns on and off, it feels like youre teleporting, and if you faint and not go into coma,it's traumatizing for the first time, hypo almost always occur after a tiring activity such as exercise or when you don't eat like during dawn while youre asleep, good thing whenever this happens my body wakes me up for some reason, all you need to do is eat or drink something sweet. I have type 1 dIabetes since 10 yrs old ,now I'm 28, I use an insulin pump since 14
