Hi my name is Athina Diane. I am 6 years old. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 5 years old on February 9, 2007. Having diabetes sometimes sucks but having supportive parents such mine makes it a little bit easier to manage the disease. My dad is a software developer and created a software package called ATHINA that I use to log my bg and also calculate the insulin units according to my carbs intake.
If you are someone with diabetes, Don't be afraid. Be happy! Stay well! Don't let diabetes manage you but instead you manage it. Remember watch what you eat. This doesn't mean that you should avoid sweets all together. You can enjoy all sorts of food but don't forget to take your medication. And yeah Exercise everyday!
If you want to talk, drop me a line at .
