HAIM star Este struggles with diabetes on tour
Speaking to BBC's Newsbeat recently, the HAIM bassist explained that being on tour and not having a real routine means that it's difficult for her to make sure she's getting enough insulin, eating the right things for her condition and finding free time to work out:
"It's due to the fact that your hours are always so different and food is never really constant. When you are trying to figure out, 'Ok, if I am eating this food, how much insulin do I have to take?' There is a lot of different factors that go along to treating diabetes, it's exercise, it's diet and insulin."
"Sometimes I can't exercise because I've spent the last 12 hours on flights or I'm exhausted or I don't want to exercise... I think it's something that I have and I have to be responsible for it and own up to it and talk about it."
