Our expert says:
You should not be concerned. It sounds like you have developed insulin dependence diabetes, due to the fact that your pancreas is much smaller, hence being unable to produce enough insulin. You will have to take daily injections. This is not painful and is done using an insulin pen. The control of your diabetes is very important, as you can develop complications, due to damage of the small arteries/blood vessels. You can live a long and prosperous life, as long as you follow a strict diet and use your medication as prescribed by your doctor.
