"Life is not always conducive to a strict schedule" (2:00)
Sean, 34, was 25 when he was diagnosed. He just wasn't used to eating and taking medication on a schedule.
Crash diets and weekend-warrior behavior arent a good idea if you have type 2 diabetes. In fact, the more consistent you are in terms of diet, medication, and exercise, the better (in terms of your blood sugar). When Sean was first diagnosed, he was in his mid-20s. He stayed up late, went to parties, ate big meals late at night, and worked out at some times but not others. It was difficult to adjust to eating and taking diabetes medication on a strict schedule.
