Hi! My name is Amina I am a type 1 diabetic, a scientist and a mother.
I live in Manchester, United Kingdom. I am not a medical professional. However since my diagnosis 21 years ago I’ve made it my point to learn everything I can about my condition. I graduated with honours in Biomedical Sciences and I’ve worked in several types of laboratories.
I enjoy drawing, traveling, discovering new foods and places. I love learning new languages. Currently I’m learning Korean and I’m totally obsessed with Korean dramas.
I’m always active, whether I’m busy chasing my children around, doing my everyday mummy duties or just working out. I enjoy Yoga, Pilates, swimming and use the gym occasionally. I’ve learnt that being active, eating right and close monitoring of my sugars plays a major part to being able to keep my diabetes under control.
My blog is a way for me to raise more awareness for diabetes. I want to be able to share my experiences as a type 1 diabetic, as a mother with diabetes, the frustrations I’ve had, the highs and lows, eating healthy and working out, current research and just day-to-day living with this testing condition. I also want to connect with others who are living with their diabetes, struggling with their diabetes, people who maybe have no knowledge of what diabetes is. Also maybe I can learn more from other about my condition and things which may help me now and in the future to better my relationship with diabetes.
Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on my posts. Or if you’d prefer you can also contact me via email @firstname.lastname@example.org
