Have a very real understanding that some days, even when you have every tool in the bag and you do EVERYTHING 'by the book,' it's still diabetes and the numbers still might not make any sense at all.
Help you watch your diet. Make sure they exercise with you.

If you have diabetes, what is your go to emergency snack for low blood sugar? We're looking for some new ideas!
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?

Does any one have any omnipod PODS for sale? Insurance is to high to go through at the moment :(.. I just need a few to get by. Thank you
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!
My son was recently diagnosed (2 weeks ago) with T1D... He is 11 and is currently the only child in his K-8 elementary school... Any words of wisdom for a new dad with a son with T1D? Other than, just treat him like you would if he didn't have T1D...
