I have been been getting really low blood sugar (around the 50s) ever since I came back to college a week and a half ago. I'm usually in class when it starts to happen or really far away from my dorm. Also I eat a healthy well balanced breakfast and lunch. The only thing is that I have to walk a lot since it is a really big campus. It is really scaring me. Does anyone have any opinions on what can help me?
Since Dr. Oz covered diabetes today this is again under my skin. Type 1 & Type 2 are not the same! Are there any other type 1 diabetics annoyed with how diabetes is classified or am I being to particular?
Has any Type 1 diabetic used Afrezza? Is it better? Major difference?
I'm actually a mom to a 5 year old that's been recently diagnosed with t1&he's been saying pretty heartbreaking stuff like I wish I could die or I hate my life I've tried everything any1 have ideas
Hi everyone. Does anyone know what could cause pancreas to start producing insulin in sufficient manner after 11 years of T1? Since 35days now, I've stop insulin injections.
Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
Looking for a "pay it forward" place. Switching pumps soon and will have a year's worth of unused supplies. Don't want to throw them away...
Ok, I admit it. I'm a diabetic noob. Am I also in denial that I have yet to resign myself to sticking myself regularly for testing? Hell, I hate it when others stick me! Must I now do it myself??!!
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!
Does anybody know why it's so difficult to lose weight being a type 1 diabetic? Something to do with insulin? And how can you make it easier to lose weight?
