Project Report | Jul 14, 2020
Patient story: Yeshihoseg

By Summer Simpson | Communications Officer

Yeshihoseg is 30 and has had insulin-dependent diabetes since she was 21 years old. Life is hard as she is divorced, supporting two teenage children. For a living she sells the local beer, Talla. Managing her diabetes is an additional burden and although it is made easier by being able to attend the health centre, she finds it difficult to control and as a result her blood sugar levels are often very high. Most recently, she attended the clinic because she had frequent headaches and some swelling of her legs and face and was found to have raised blood pressure. She also said that she had been taking traditional (usually herbal) medicine which is common in Ethiopia but difficult for the clinic staff as the active ingredients of these medicines are frequently not known.
