Ahmed Afifi

Patient Leader

I am a T1 diabetic who is full of passion towards supporting fellow diabetics through spreading the word about real diabetes management. I do so by writing about my own experience in Diabetes management, about what I learn from great books that talk about Diabetes and how serious it is, if not taken care of. I have a facebook page that take care of all aspects of Diabetes management education , I write weekly articles in many newspapers and in my blogspot in Arabic so I can support the Diabetes community in middle east as much as I can. my hope is that every diabetic will be able to protect him/her self from Diabetes complications by achieving normal blood sugar all the time.
