Brec Bassinger Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Diabetes Diagnosis

Brec Bassinger is opening up more about her Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis.

The 18-year-old former Bella and the Bulldogs actress shared on Tuesday (January 23) that it’s been ten years since she was diagnosed.

“Yesterday, January 22nd, TEN YEARS AGO, I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. Literally a whole decade,” she wrote. “As with any battle, there are ups and downs, and every anniversary brings about those same conflicting emotions. As weird as it may seem to celebrate a disease, I do. I celebrate the person it has made me. The people I’ve connected with because of it. And I celebrate that it is one year closer to a cure. In the picture, you will see my super cool Dexcom connected to my arm. I like to tell people I’m a robot (and they believe it too). I never wanted anything connected to my body because it was open proof that I was different, but I am different. We all are. EMBRACE YOUR DIFFERENCES. But you heard it here first, one day diabetes will not be one of my differences #typeonetypenone Xo.”

    Good news. I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2017. I started the ADA diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found Lisa’s diabetes story (google ” How I freed myself from diabetes ” ) I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next week my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70′s and the 80′s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 16 pounds and 3+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods
