Hey, was looking up disability forums and noticed most of them were old- as in active 2017 so thought I’d make a new one! If there’s anyone about who wants to chat about how to manage Huel with a disability or use Huel to help manage your disability I’d love to hear from you. I’m very new and just looking for advice
Hey Bethany welcome to the forum, so great to have you here!
Thank you for sharing a bit of your story with us. You’ll find a whole range of people here using Huel whilst managing disabilities, mental health conditions and using Huel post illness or surgery. Have scroll and use the search bar to find them and let us know if you have any questions
I’m not registered disabled but I do have some disabilities. I suffer from sleep apnoea, diabetes, my left leg is shorter than my right by about an inch and a half (35mm) and it’s also at an angle to the left, that was all due to an accident I had when I was 17.The surgeon concluded that by the age of 35 I would be unfit for manual labour, but I am now 51 and still walking, but the pain is getting worse. So Huel is helping me in many ways. And I can’t thank them enough really. I’ve got about 2 to 2 and half stone (18kg) to get to my target weight, another 10Kg after that would be perfect. I need to relieve the pressure on my legs, and back because my spine is being thrown out by the shorter leg. My diabetes is well under control, massive difference after switching to Huel. Hopefully I’ll be able to get off some, if not all, the meds. MY blood pressure is coming down, I’ve gone from the highest dose to the lowest dose in 6 months. My back only hurts occasionally, but my left ankle still get painful by the end of the day.
Well, I’m off the blood pressure tablets for the time being. I will have to see how thing go, hopefully I will not be taking them again, at least not for being overweight. I’m also 3 stone lighter and over half way to my target.
