Christopher Rodger

christopher-rodgerI was born in 1941, and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in early 1953. At the age of 12 I had taken a strong interest in various sporting activities in C.B.C. College. I loved all forms of sport and won the College Under 17 singles handball championship in 1957.

I found it difficult to deal with diabetes during my younger years. I had many experiences of trying to keep a steady blood sugar level while playing energy-sapping sports, particularly tennis. Our Southern Districts tennis team achieved a premiership when I was 50 years old so I claimed the bragging rights of only taking 50 years to be involved in such an achievement.

There was certainly not much knowledge of the problems and treatment of diabetes back in my younger days as there is today. I know my parents had difficulty with the issue and in keeping me under control. At the beginning I simply wanted to be a typical teenager and didn't want to know about or deal with such health matters.

My early experience with diabetes was helped with my contact in the 1950's with Mr Frank Baldwin, the first Secretary of the Diabetes Association of South Australia. He taught me a great deal about how to live with diabetes and invited me to attend the first children's camp held in January 1956 at 'Duncraig'. This was an enjoyable time.

My thanks for a manageable life with type 1 diabetes must go to many people, but firstly to my Endocrinologists the late Dr Dene Hicks, Dr Pat Phillips, Dr Stephen Judd and presently Dr Amanda Terry, all who have guided me so well along a constant path of adjusting my daily control of diabetes.

I am most thankful to my lovely wife, Frances who has persevered and shared with me over the 52 years, the daily trials of living and coping with type 1 diabetes. Our 3 children and 7 grand-children have also been of great support to me.

My gratitude to the Diabetic Association of South Australia Inc.who have been there all of my diabetic life. They have continued to be most supportive to myself and my wife and I thank sincerely all of the Members of the organisation for their assistance over many years.
