Deeksha is a 25-year-old girl living in Mohali, Punjab. She is deeply passionate about human psychology, practices meditation every day and works as the Head of Community Engagement. What makes Deeksha different is that she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was just 4 year’s old and since then she has successfully and effectively managed this condition while making the most of each new day The road less travelled. A family trip to Kolkata turned into a visit to the ICU for the Deeksha. Following a sudden drastic weight loss (almost 4 kgs in 2 days) and an uncharacteristic bed-wetting episode, her parents knew something was not quite right with their daughter’s health. While admitted in the ICU, the doctor’s confirmed that Deeksha had Type 1 diabetes. The diagnosis came as a shock to Deeksha’s family since they had no history of diabetes on either her maternal or paternal side. They had no knowledge or understanding of this disease and how it needs to be managed but they were determined to not let Deeksha make compromises in her life because of her diagnosis. They immersed themselves in getting the right information and educated themselves on how to manage diabetes for their child.
