Health Philosophy Interview Paper My paternal grandmother, Lucille, has many chronic conditions, yet we decided to focus on her diabetes for the majority of questions concerning her health and wellness. When asked, Lucille could not remember when she was first diagnosed with diabetes, but does remember when she “switched from taking pills to taking insulin.” She began taking insulin the spring of 2009 after her doctor decided it was time to switch.
