SUPPORT A DIABETIC

Personal message

My name is Anita Nortje, I am 55 years old, and I am raising funds to buy the Dexcom G6 glucose monitoring system.

I have been a type 1 diabetic for the past 43 years. I am married and have 3 sons. I am a runner and have completed 10 Two Oceans half marathons and lots of other races.

Controlling blood sugar levels is always a challenge. Because of being a diabetic for so long, I lost warning signs of low sugar and thus had a few comas the past year. I am training 5 days a week as part of managing my diabetes.

The Dexcom G6 'continuous glucose' monitoring system sends results to the app on my phone every 5 minutes; 24 hours a day. This will be especially helpful when I am running and late at night when I am at risk of falling into a coma.

Due to comas that can cause serious injuries as a result of low blood sugar, I need the Dexcom G6 that can warn me when my sugar levels are dropping, so that I can prevent future incidents. 

Reaching my target will mean that I can live a quality life as a type 1 diabetic and not be caught off guard with dangerous low sugar levels and a possible coma.  My medical aid does not cover the Dexcom G6.

Funds raised will be used for Dexcom G6 glucose monitoring for 1 year.
