I've found that doing exercise helped me stabilise my BS readings. It was difficult at first but if I play badminton and table tennis 3 times a week it gets my metabolism going to reduce insulin dose.

Ketones suck! I agree with****about exercise. when I miss gym for a few days due to work, my levels increase a lot

Checked BS 3 times, all over 600. Won't register on meter. Have almost all the signs of DKA but mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experienced with DKA and we would just waste our money. We can't go to another hospital because we dot have insurance there. Please help! I feel horrible!
Today my daughter got her first A1C check since being diagnosed in December... It was 14.5 on the 19th of dec, and today it was 8!!!! I'm very happy about this!

I was just diagnosed with type one. I've read a lot on here about pumps. should I be looking into getting one?
Feel like the worst m in the world right now! Let my husband take the kids to dinner and a movie, gave my 7 yr old her insulin... 3 hrs later it was at 'high' rechecked and it was at 541! Feel like crap! Didn't calculate her carbs that well! :(
I can see black things floating with my left eye and also everything I see is blurry,I am type 1 any ideas?
What insulin do the type 1s out there use? I've always used novolog (used to use levemir and novolog before pumping), but curious what others use and why? What's the fastest acting insulin out there?
My husbands birthday is coming up and we are going for dinner then he and our friends may venture elsewhere. My question is if you go out how do you explain the diabetes kit? Do bouncers even care? (Needles, lancets etc)
