Gerald Garwood is from South Africa, is a Ship’s Captain, and has type 2 diabetes. Just like the huge responsibilities he has as a Ship’s Captain of Crude Carriers, Gerald now has the big responsibility of managing his type 2 diabetes. For both of these responsibilities, if he does not carefully manage either there are definitely serious consequences.
Listen as Gerald speaks about how he learned to accept the changes he would have to make to live a healthier life with type 2. Losing a little bit of freedom was worth the longevity he feels he has given himself in life. Don’t let your diabetes dictate your life!
