where people touched by diabetes help each other.
I am 16 years old going on 17. I don't know what to do. I'm always tired and I never stay in range. Any advice?
Always consult your doctor for instructions. You can get very tired from ups & downs. Don't let the stress of diabetes get to you, but do call your doctor -that's what they're there for.

I'm going to suggest hormones are playing a part here. See your Dr, they may need to adjust your levels
Take more insulin. If your never in range I'm never in range an I've discovered the more often I take insulin the better my numbers are. Even if I'm not eating.
Adjust your carb ratio if it's always after meal times that you go high...if it's corrections then change your correction factor. As for the tiredness could be low b12 or low iron!

Is your insulin dose right? Talk to your dr - sounds like dose not right, too many carbs, or not injecting every time you eat which would explain highs

Hey guys! How often do you go to the pharmacy or receive a mail order with supplies? Thank you!
My insurance won't cover two expensive purchases within a certain amount of time. I want a CGM but need a pump. Do any pumps have CGM's in them or am I just wishing too hard?

Does anyone know how much the bionic pancreas cost or. how you go about getting on the list ??
So I noticed the strangest thing.... Eggs make my blood sugar go extremely high, anybody else? I have no logic answer
So i just got a cgm and love it but i was wondering if there is anything i can do to reduce post meal spikes. Ive tried giving insulin 15-60 min before a meal, but still does not help. Any suggestions
For those that take insulin with your meals, how do you go about taking it when you're out at a restaurant or other social gatherings? Do you take it out in front of everyone or do you try to find a secluded spot to take it? How does it make you feel when you take it, knowing people are curious?
just curious what other people keep in their cars for possible reactions. I tried glucose tabs but they go bad in summer heat. Now I use fruit wraps.
How do u guys correct before going to sleep? For example im 192 now about to go to sleep. Im using novoRapid and lantus and it always scares me to correct before bed so i wont get a hypo while sleeping
