Ihor was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 10. This means that you need to constantly monitor your blood glucose levels throughout the day, otherwise you risk ending up in intensive care. Shelling increases stress and risk. To know when to inject insulin, Ihor needs sensors.

The disease appeared suddenly 3 days before Ihor turned ten years old. The boy began to constantly feel thirsty. At the family doctor, a blood test for glucose levels showed 16 mmol/l, with the norm being up to 5. Ihor was hospitalized in the endocrinology department of a hospital in Kryvyi Rih.

Droppers with insulin drugs (Actrapid and Levemir) helped stabilize the serious condition. After 3 years they will be replaced by Tresiba and NovoRapid. Ihor's life turned into a nightmare. Every day he needed to take 6-7 insulin injections and check his blood glucose levels 10-12 times. This is an average of 500 skin punctures per month!

To reduce their son’s suffering, parents began buying Libre 2 sensors two years ago. One device works for 14 days and costs 1,950 UAH. The sensor automatically measures the glucose level and displays the result on mom and Ihor’s phone, and in case of a critical situation, it gives a signal. Now he no longer needs to prick his fingers for a blood test. And most importantly, vital organs suffer less from sudden “jumps” in glucose.

At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Ihor had to call an ambulance every day, since the shelling caused severe stress and he lost consciousness. Now, during an air raid, the family hides in the corridor.

There were 3 schools in Apostolove, but on the night of July 22, they were destroyed by the enemy with missile attacks. In one of them, Ihor studies online in the 8th grade. On the doctor’s recommendation, the boy does weightlifting and runs on a treadmill so that his glucose does not rise critically.

Ihor visits a psychologist who helps him accept his illness and the fact that his friends and acquaintances will inevitably find out.

We are opening a fundraiser for 24 sensors to provide a guy for a year. His father recently had spinal surgery and cannot return to work, and his mother receives unemployment benefits. Let's help Ihor suffer less from pain and stay healthy!
