Hi there, how many times have you had to use your epipen? If you have needed it how often?
I've not used it yet...... Only had it one year, and have been unsure of when and how to use it! What about yourself?
I have used it 8 times in the last 12 months. (I'm 15)
Wow you must have bad allergies? I'm 43 and a chronic asthmatic with server allergies 😣 how do you find the epi pen..... Is it easy to use?
The epipen is really easy to use, it saves my life often. Today I'm already showing pretty bad signs of needing it but only time will tell! Xx
I hope your feeling okay now****

Checked BS 3 times, both read over 600. Mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experience with DKA. I have almost all the signs of DKA expect large ketones and vomiting. Only small ketones and a stomach ache.What do I do? I would feel safer at a hospital but mom won't take me!Please Help!
Hi. I was recently diagnosed with type 1. I'm in the hospital now because my blood sugar hit extremely high levels.I'm freaking out a bit because I hate needles.if anyone has any ideas, let me know!!!
I currently ran out of ketone strips and can not get to any at the moment. Can I just use my actual blood sugar meter and just dip a strip into (tmi) urine? Need advice here! I'm high and feel sick!
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?
It seems to me that there are support communities and organizations for kids with T1 diabetes, college kids with T1 D, and their parents. Do adults with T1 D not need support?
Does anyone have an old CGM that they would be willing to sell or gift. I am stuck in that insurance/income limbo where I can't get the CGM or afford to buy one...ty for your time.
Which supplies do you most commonly misplace, forget or lose altogether? How do you keep track of them?
The Chicago group is growing ! My name is Rachna and I'm the community leader for tudiabetes in Chicago. I was diagnosed with T1D in 2003 (age of 19). Where are you from? Please introduce yourself !
Has anyone else noticed that your blood sugar goes up while you are sleeping. I will often go to sleep with my blood sugar in the 80s and wake up in the high 100s to low 200s
Any T1's with tattoo's? My endo discourages even though my A1C is fine.
