where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hey, does anyone have study tips for the unfortunate diabetic? I'm a 1st year med student. I'm always high because I cannot concentrate after lows and I don't want to lose time on that...

You know that feeling when you just can't force yourself drink something other than coffee? Finales are the worst!

I keep eating every 20 minutes. Small bites. It helps here.

What do you eat though? Are you using a pump?

Try and take your time! I'm studying, I find going a couple of hours at a time not too bad, but having to have a snack as I go low when I'm thinking too hard. Good luck xx

I don't know but if you're a student you probably have to sit a lot. It might be good in between classes to get exercise to ease the stress and high blood sugars. Anxiety can have an effect on your lev

I would suggest to eat peanut butter, hard boiled egg or cheese & crackers for snacks. Long acting protein helps.

Start checking all the time. Literally. Or look into dexcom! Once you know what kinds of weird mean what blood sugar, you'll be able to better control it. I also highly suggest a pump!
