Geoffrey Koch

geoffrey-kochWhen I was 2½ years old, in January 1945, the doctor in Tumby Bay diagnosed me with diabetes and I was sent to Adelaide for treatment. Like most people during the Second World War, my parents, who were farmers, were short of money and Dad had to sell a flock of sheep to make this trip possible. I can remember thinking 'it will be good to get home and not need to have needles anymore'. But of course they continued.

I owe a lot to my parents, because help was far away and treatment was so primitive by today's standards. Syringes and needles were sterilised by boiling and blunt needles were sharpened with an oilstone. Methylated spirits was later used for sterilising and sugar levels were determined by the colour of urine when mixed with some chemicals and boiled in a test tube. My schooling was done by correspondence because of the distance by school bus and the teacher's limited knowledge about diabetes.

After living for 70 years with type 1 diabetes the changes in food allowed to be eaten and treatment advances have been truly amazing. Blood glucose meters, and for the last 8 years an insulin pump, have enabled very good control of my diabetes.

I was a farmer for 43 years and in that time I was lucky to meet and marry my lovely wife Bev, who has helped to achieve a healthy and happy life. We have 3 children and 8 grandchildren. I have been retired for 14 years now and I am still healthy and active with very few complications.
