where people touched by diabetes help each other.
Anyone have swollen, achy joints? I woke up to swollen fingers and hands yesterday. because the doctor does not want to listen to my symptoms. And I don't seem to have normal systems.

Sounds like you might have early symptoms of arthritis**** you may need a course of anti-inflammatories. Could I suggest that if your doctor is refusing to listen then you find one who will :)
****do you have high blood pressure? If you do it could be that. But like****said it could be arthritis as well. If your doctor does not want to listen the it is time to find someone who will.
My 6 yr just got on a cgm monitor who has that does that work good my first day offf

My hands are sometimes swollen in the mornings. Has your vision changed recently? If so, get your urine tested for proteins because the eyes and kidneys have small blood vessels so might be related.

My ankles tend to swell, so I got my podiatrist to write script for suppression socks and they help tremendously.
Sounds like your body is retaining fluid. Try a dyretic.

I usually wake up with a swollen hand. Sometimes I can't wear my wedding ring. 😔
Sounds like you need a new doctor...

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?
I started Juicing in Feb. 2013 and in Sept. was told I was no longer diabetic. So I asked the Dr. Was he sure and he said Yes. So I was confused and shocked, so I asked him do I need to continue testing and his response was No you don't need to test at all. Months later & I'm confused. Not sure.
