Keeping Diabetes a Secret

M D Internal Medicine
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Keeping Diabetes a Secret


Most people with diabetes – myself included – have things about their diabetes that they prefer to keep to themselves. But as a diabetes psychologist, one of the biggest challenges that I have in my practice is when I have a patient who prefers to keep their diabetes, and everything that it involves, a secret from people in their life. I’m not talking about details like their last A1c or what their blood sugar was the last time that they checked, but everything. When someone tells me that they prefer to hide diabetes from other people, it usually tells me that they aren’t taking care of themselves.

I don’t necessarily think that choosing to be secretive about having diabetes is necessarily a problem in and of itself. Everyone has the right to share, or not, anything about their health care, including what medical conditions they face. However I am a firm believer that behavior (which also includes the ‘act’ of not doing something) is functional. So when someone wants to be secretive about having diabetes, my question is ‘what function does this need for secrecy serve?’ Generally, it is one of 3 things:

Denial: A big reason that people with diabetes don’t tell others about their diabetes is because they are having trouble accepting that they have diabetes. By keeping it a secret, it helps them keep up the belief that there’s nothing wrong. Talking about having diabetes to others makes having diabetes seem more real. Not telling others about their diabetes lets them hold out hope that it will just go away (Spoiler alert: It won’t!)

Embarrassment: It’s really common for people to be embarrassed about having diabetes. This embarrassment usually comes from one of two places. First people may be embarrassed that they are not ‘healthy’ and feel like there is something wrong with them. Second, some people are embarrassed by the things they have to do to manage diabetes, like wear a pump, give themselves a shot, or check their blood sugar. They feel like diabetes makes them different and may have some affect on their relationships. To help them feel less embarrassed, some people keep diabetes a secret.

Burn-out: People tend to talk to their friends and family members about things they are excited about and that are important to them. If someone is keeping their diabetes a secret, it may be a sign that they are burned out and that diabetes isn’t a priority to them at that time. This is a normal feeling. What people forget sometimes is that keeping diabetes a secret from others can make it a lot harder to get support and encouragement.

While some people find that keeping diabetes a secret may work for a time, but it also usually causes other problems. First, keeping a part of you life hidden from those around you takes a lot of work and can be exhausting. Also, keeping diabetes a secret usually means people aren’t able to manage their diabetes very well, making them feel bad physically.

Before choosing to keep diabetes a secret from others remember to ask yourself what function does keeping it a secret serve. Your answer may surprise you!

Masturbation and Hairloss

Masturbation and Hairloss

Does Masturbation contribute to Hairloss?

Yes, during sex or masturbation testosterone levels increase and at the point of ejaculation, some testosterone is converted into DHT. If the DHT makes it to the scalp and the scalp is sensitive to DHT, the result could be increased hair loss.


Solution: You can stop masturbating or having sex (at least to the point of ejaculation.

Is Endura Mass harmful for health. Which is better between these two EnduraMass or proteins.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Is Endura Mass harmful for health. Which is better between these two EnduraMass or proteins.
Hye, thanks for the query. Firstly understand what is the need of proteins and how they function. Don't just think that to gain mass all you need is proteins. The moment you think of weight gain, whatever is your workout or diet intake, does not justify taking a protein supplement. You cannot gain weight by just adding a protein source to your diet. Weight gain needs additional calories through a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, healthy fats and exercise. Also any supplement claiming to be a weight gainer will never help if your basic diet is not good. A supplement is actually what it is- a supplement. It is an additional adjunct to your diet not supposed to replace your diet. Even if you do see weight gain it could be just fat mass and not at all muscle mass. Healthy muscle gain needs good exercise a a healthy diet to compliment it. Proteins are not stored in the body like other nutrients. Your body will utilize only as much protein it needs and the rest will be broken down for energy purpose which is it's secondary function; main being building/repairing muscles. Depending on the exercise (ie. Strength training/cardio or activities like gymnastics or weight lifting) your body's needs for proteins varies. Although whey is natural and the most easily and quickly assimilated form of protein - it is not needed to be exclusively included in your diet. You have to have a balanced healthy protein rich diet for the supplement to be utilised. Protein need totally depends on your present food intake & activity levels. So, for weight gain you need a balanced, calorie dense diet and a good exercise routine.

Anal sex does not make your girlfriend pregnant, and there is nothing to worry if your sperms have not reached your girlfriend's vagina.

• At sehori Roti, multigrain bread with peanut butter, Eggs, Oats/Wheat flakes/Museli with milk keeps you fuller for longer
• At iftar fresh fruits, dates add as an intial source of carbohydrate/energy to freshen you up
• Fruit Vegetable juice combination at iftar will help in cleansing in your body

Is japan oil effective? Is there any other medicine who does same what japan oil claims?
Hello- Japani oil or Japani tel is an effective energy booster for men to improve their love life. If you are also suffering from impotence or unsatisfied with your marital life, this is the best solution for you. Oil is made of natural herbs. It is completely harmless. However, remember to use it in a proper quantity and on a regular basis to get its maximum advantage.
