Setting your life goals

Famous diabetics. (List starts below V )

There are many famous diabetics or diabetics who have become famous, (you decide) that you were not aware of. Just because they are famous does not mean that they are immune to being diabetic. Famous diabetics were just 'normal' people like you and I before fame happened. Had they not been famous, many would have still got type 1diabetes, although lifestyle changes can bring on type 2 diabetes, famous or not.

Many Famous people who are diabetics have not let their condition get in the way or success.  Just because they are one of many diabetics in the world, it has not stopped them perusing their chosen careers, be it actor, athlete, scientist, singer, film producer or president. They are diabetics as well.


So, just because you are one of many diabetics, do not let this get you down and avoid your personal goals.  You can achieve! Set your personal goals, look after your glucose levels, eat right and exercise regularly and work towards these personal goals.  Just because we are diabetics does not mean that we are any lesser than other people who are not.  There is no need to let diabetes hold you back.


Set your personal goals!
