Diabetes related Spotify Playlist

I just stumbled about a few Spotify titles that got my attention. Most of the lyrics refer to a different context but I guess every diabetic can understand how I interpreted them. They remind me on my difficult diabetes days and some songs are actually not that bad.

Here are a few Song examples

  • High at Night | Alle Farben, Lowell
  • When I Get Low, I Get High | The Speakeasy Three
  • Sugar, Sugar | The Archies
  • Sugar, we’re Going Down | Fall Out Boy

If you are on Spotify you can listen to them, I just created a Diabeteslifehacks Spotify Playlist called highs & lows. Don’t hesitate to send me your diabetes related songs and I’ll add them.
