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

Hi everyone, do you have any recommendation? I'm looking for.anyone who has convinced their work to change their benifet plan to cover cgm. any advice or even presentations used would be appreciated.
hello I am a single mother of three on food stamps,who just found out I have diabetes I have no money to get the glucose meter and the test strips or the things you poke yo if somebody able to help m?
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?
Fastest low treatment?
DESPERATE for pump supplies! either silhouette or quick set infusion sets. no insurance and I've been trying to sell anything of value on Craigslist to come up with the money for them, but no luck!
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?
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?
If you have diabetes, what is your go to emergency snack for low blood sugar? We're looking for some new ideas!
