Halle Berry, the babe we popularly know as one of the hottest celebrities today has been diagnosed of Type 1 Diabetes since early in her career. Personally, she came to my liking when she had a role in one of the James Bond Movies i used to see some years ago but before we go out of topic, let us dwell on what her disease is all about.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that kills the beta cells of the pancreas which is responsible for making the hormone insulin. When one person is said to be Type 1 diabetic, it means that he or she lacks this hormone which is very helpful in regulating the sugar level in the body. We hear different stories related to this disease but it is often not enough to know how it really feels to be a diabetic. You have to carefully watch what you eat, you need to abide to exercise schedules and the most difficult of all is the drug regimen and artificial hormone admininstrations that is very easy to loose patience with, thats why its not very uncommon to meet people who prefer to die early than follow this rather difficult lifestyle.

Halle Berry now is faced with a difficult situation but with the money she is making, I dont think she is going to have a hard time dealing with it. At least not in a few years.

    I have been a type one diabetic for the last 12 years. I am 24 years of age and in excellent health. With some determination (a few brain cells help!) Type 1 diabetes is very very easy to control, it all depends on attitude. To say people prefer to die early than control their diabetes is very insulting and a tad sensationalist!
