Theresa May Reveals Rare Details Of Her Life As A Diabetic Prime Minister

Theresa May has revealed she injects insulin up to five times a day in a rare admission of what it's like to be a diabetic Prime Minister. The Tory leader spoke out about her regime when she was asked to share it by a fellow diabetic. While Mrs May is known to have Type 1 diabetes and injects insulin at mealtimes, she has seldom answered detailed questions about her condition. Before today, she had not revealed the number of times she injects insulin per day. Mrs May made the comments as she took questions from members of the public during a Facebook Live interview with ITV News. She said: "Basically when I eat I have to inject insulin, which I do, and you have a base dose as well. “I will be injecting myself four or five times a day." The Tory leader said it did not interfere with her schedule. "You just get into a routine," she said. "You depend on that insulin and you just build that routine into your daily life." She added: “Being a diabetic doesn’t stop you from doing anything.” During the lively session - which lasted almost an hour - the Tory leader was barraged with questions on everything from fox hunting to benefit cuts.

    I don't have an answer to your question ray, but am looking forward to hearing from others. I LOVE Thai food, but have been afraid to have some since diagnosed.

    I've read this forum for over a year now but have never posted. I am classified as pre-diabetic (if there truly is such a category). Anyway, I'm here and have been learning.
    I think I got the idea from this site, but there are asian noodles called Miracle Noodles that have little to no carbs. I ordered some but haven't gotten them yet. I'll let you know how they are. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. :)
    I also found that Birds Eye sells a very large bag of Thai frozen vegetables that comes with a flavor packet that can be added to the veggies. The carb count, even with the sauce, really doesn't seem to be bad at all and it has really a good Thai flavoring. I'm hoping the Miracle Noodles will be good with it.
    Other than that, I too have deprived myself of these types of foods in restaurants because of not knowing anything about the carbs involved.
