So with an A1c of 6.5% - which in all literature would be considered excellent management - you developed some complications. Do you think you’ve failed. I certainly don’t.

No one is giving up. But you realise there are people who have to make a decision between food and insulin? Not sure they have much time to ‘make their voice heard’.

That’s just not true, Brendan. We can reduce the risk of complications but we cannot eliminate that risk. I know many, many people with diabetes who have had excellent management and still developed complications.

Also, what a privileged comment. Sure, we are all responsible for our own health, but what if people can’t access drugs and therapies and HCPs? Have they failed if they develop complications?

It is not failing. It is what can (not necessarily will) happen when living with diabetes. People get complications despite ‘perfect’ management. Sometimes, they just do happen.

Wow. It’s 4.30am here and I am jet lagged beyond belief, so I’m not thinking clearly. But attitudes like yours is why diabetes is such a stigmatised condition. No one asks to get diabetes complications. 1/2

No one is suggesting they are an inevitability. But complications happen and if we don’t speak about them openly, those diagnosed can be made to feel they have failed. I’m sorry, but your tweet completely missed the point here.
