Comments from Nadia Stewart
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes one month before my 29th birthday, on August 10, 2009.
My typical day involves work, hanging out with friends and family, and working out.
My day is not that different from a nondiabetic’s except that I take a pill every day and have to check my blood glucose. I work out a lot and watch what I eat.
I choose to live my life and not have diabetes live it for me.
Having diabetes forced me to make lifestyle changes – what I eat, how active I am, managing stress. However, the threat of the extreme downfalls weighs on my mind. Amputation, slow healing wounds, blindness – these are all things that can come without managing the disease.
I want to Stop Diabetes® because no one should worry about these things on a daily basis.
My photographs show me at my house working and having coffee with a friend. I was also photographed in my work-out room and on some trails in Denver with the amazing aspen in the background. It was beautiful!
