TYPE 2 DIABETES
"It completely changed my life."
Md. Nahinuzzaman, a 24-year-old gentleman from Dhaka studying in Bachelor of Business Administration in a reputed university. Six years back, while he diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Since he had his examinations around the corner, Nahin delayed his treatment. However, this delay resulted in him losing almost around 17 kgs of weight with a few black-out episodes. Later, when he admitted to the hospital, his sugar readings were diagnosed to be as high as 32 + mmol/L. After the diagnosis, Nahin experienced certain constraints in carrying out his routine activities. Initially, Nahin started with tablets and a couple of injections daily. These were giving him decent results until soon they became ineffective, and soon enough, he could rely only on 4-5 insulin injections each day to maintain a reasonable blood sugar level. However, injecting insulin every three-four hours started getting severe and uncomfortable for Nahin. Every time he had to do so, he had to look for a private place away from the public eyes to save himself from the many irritating questions that could come from his friends.
Nahin used to participate in many extra-curricular activities, which many times resulted in erratic eating patterns. These resulted in him getting into frequent hypoglycemic episodes where his sugar levels would fall way below average. To tackle this situation, smartly without compromising or changing his current lifestyle, his doctor recommended him to use an insulin pump.
The continuous insulin delivery gave him freedom and flexibility and better control on his sugar levels allowing him to live life with fewer restrictions than before. With the insulin pump, he can regulate the dosage as per his body’s requirement and can easily adjust the insulin dosage to his timings. The basal feature in the pump, the extreme ups, and downs in his blood sugar levels have almost gone down. He engages in all the physical activities like working out at the gym or cycling without worrying about his sugar levels.
“The mechanism of continuous insulin delivery gave me better control over diabetes without changing my lifestyle! I have experienced the benefits myself, and it is the best therapy around,” says Nahin.
