Mona, who has type one diabetes, said that her blood sugar level finally stabilized to the range of 90 to 140 from a very high level of 300 to 400.
Unfortunately, she sustained nerve damage when her blood sugar stabilized because the nerves weren’t used to that level of blood sugar. Mona said that she is currently receiving treatment for the said nerve condition but that it will take time for her to fully recover.
“I’m type one diabetic and for a while, hindi talaga controlled ‘yung sugar ko even though nagtutusok naman kami. Recently, hindi ako okay. Alam mo ‘yung nagkakasakit ako? Nag-start din ako dito sa pump. And then nu’ng umokay na ‘yung sugar ko for the first time in ten years.
“Kasi dati lagi akong high, 300 or 400. And ngayon, nasa normal na ako which is 90 to 140 ganun. Pwede pa sa akin ‘yun kasi nagbibigay naman ng insulin. 120 normal kapag normal ka. Pero 140 kapag sa diabetic, normal.

“After nu’n, nagkaroon ng problems ‘yung nerves ko kasi nagulat ‘yung katawan ko. Sanay kasi sila sa mataas na sugar. So ‘yung nerves ko, nagulat sila tapos nagkaroon ako ng diabetic neuropathy. Pero I will get better. Hindi naman siya incurable.
“May gamot siya but it will take some time para umokay ako,” Mona revealed.
Ivana also shared that her sister is missing in some of her vlogs for the past year because she got hospitalized multiple times.
“Ilang beses siya na-ospital nu’ng pandemic. Tapos alam mo ‘yun, hindi kami makadalaw. Pero isang beses, dumalaw ako. Wala akong pakialam, wala akong trabaho. Tapos nag-PPE ako tapos nagpunta ako du’n sa room nila.
“Kasi ilang beses na siyang na-ospital dati. So ngayon, umookay na,” Ivana said.
