How diabetes can affect your relationships

Relationships are fragile things. When two people come together, there will be conflicts, and some relationships will be affected by the health conditions of one or even both partners.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition that can have an impact on relationships with your partner, and even on those with family members, such as parents and siblings.

Of course, type 2 diabetes is not the main cause of relationship breakdown, but it is something that can take its toll. One of the reasons for this is that diabetes is mainly driven by lifestyle choices. Education, understanding and sacrifice are needed to implement this knowledge so that the patient maintains an optimal level of health.
In general, without the support of a healthy partner, the partner with diabetes will have difficulty implementing the changes necessary to control the disease. This applies to married people, who live together or in a serious long-term relationship. The control of diabetes focuses on healthy lifestyle choices and changes in habits that can be closely related and that can have a psychological impact on both partners.

Those who have type 2 diabetes can not eat what they want and when they want. They may have to change the habits of smoking and drinking alcohol. They also need to exercise regularly and pay attention to their blood sugar levels.

This can lead to problems in the relationship if the partner of the well does not understand or support these changes. A small example is when that couple buys donuts and keeps them in the house, even when it may be a temptation that the diabetic couple does not need. Sacrifices must be made, and the partner without diabetes will have to make them like the one diagnosed.

Alcohol can be another problem, and if alcohol consumption was a regular occurrence in the relationship, then the sudden need to reduce and change those habits will cause stress on both sides. Couples who do not want to stop drinking or adjust their habits to meet the diabetic's needs may try to use peer pressure and convince the other that some drinks will not hurt, simply because they want to drink them themselves. This type of supportive behavior can not only be a cause of anger and pain on the part of the diabetic, it can also cause them to question how much the other person cares. And, since diabetes can lead to serious complications, such as heart disease, amputations, blindness, coma and death, this concern would be well justified.
There is a certain level of maturity that is required in any relationship, but it may require more maturity in the relationships in which one of the partners is dealing with diabetes.

Not everyone has the ability to put the needs of others over their own, and this type of dynamic can lead to feelings of resentment on both sides.

Understanding and support is key. Those with diabetes must understand that the changes they must make in their lives will affect their partner and, of course, that couple must also understand and support the needs of the person diagnosed.

This requires sacrifice and disinterest that not everyone can deal with, and can scare those who can not deal with it.

Fear and resentment

Another problem that may arise is dealing with feelings of fear, guilt and resentment. A newly diagnosed person may naturally experience feelings of fear and resentment in the diagnosis itself. Diabetes scares, since it is the seventh cause of death. Perhaps they are angry at being diagnosed and, since human nature usually dictates that we eliminate the worst feelings of those close to us, the other couple is right in the line of fire.
It really takes a lot of love, and a very astute partner to recognize that the person with diabetes is struggling with intense problems and not to take such attacks personally. Many times this is not the case and the constant struggle and hurt feelings can end in a breakup.

Communication is key. Both parties should be open about how they feel about the situation, and support each other in whatever way is necessary. Sometimes it is helpful to make a list of the changes the diabetic should make and create a written plan on how both parties will deal with them.
