where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Anyone got any advice...I've been type 1 diabetic for 10 years and I got out of routine and now I'm struggling to remember to do my blood sugar levels...it's the one thing I need to get sorted to get my provisional driving licence xx

It doesn't matter if you don't eat at these times but it's starts to get you into a routine just set an alarm for times that convenient it doesn't have to coincide with meals once you get into a routine of doing them it will be easier to remember and you won't need the alarms mine don't also match my meals because I am sometimes in lesson over lunch so I eat late but I set the alarm for before the lesson so that I do a blood test

When I first started after a long burnout, I left meters everywhere. One in the bathroom, kitchen, car, bedside, desk at work. My deal with myself was that if I saw the meter, I checked. If I had data, I could act on it. I also made a deal with myself that I wouldn't take insulin or eat without a number to go with it.
