Hi, I'm a 42 year mom of three kids. I had gestational diabetes 4 years ago and managed to get super control with insulin thrice a day, lots of testing, diet and exercise. I could tell you by how many points my BG would fall on walking or rise with…Continue
I have had type 1 for over 30 years, and I have recently been having Gallbladder issues. (I use a pump) I have also had quite a bit of recent trouble keeping my BG down. Are these related? It seems that my basal rate and my bolus amounts are not…Continue
Has anyone read Dr Bernstein's book about his low carb way of living?I have recently read it and am very interested in what he has to say, but it seems like everyone who follows his way of life are older 55+(no offence of course!). I just want to…Continue

I guess I relied on my doctor and wasn't proactive enough. I thought when I had my fasting tests done, they would call me if something was wrong, they never called so I thought everything was OK.
Well, this is my punishment for trying to get healthy I guess. I am eating better, exercising and lost 43 lbs so far. I was told I have gallstones because I lost weight. What a vicious cycle. I was trying to get better not worse. But I made it worse somehow.

I was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes when I was nine years old. I come from a family of many Type I's. I am told having so many members of the same family that are Type I diabetics is rare. There are five of us, myself, one of my brothers, my father, an aunt, and a cousin. Myself and my brother are the only two still living. My father passed away from a stroke, my aunt from kidney failure, and my cousin from complications of a staph infection, if I remember correctly. The point of this is to…Continue
This past January I spent 18 days in Bangalore, India, along with my husband who joined me, helping at a diabetes clinic for the poor. It all came about because I met an amazing young woman in our community, Erin Little. Erin is living in a small, patient room in the clinic and working tirelessly to get access to affordable health care to India's poor. India has the second highest growth of diabetes in the world and 70% of their population live in villages far from any doctor or…Continue
