Hi all 49 M with Type 1 diabetes and also have RR MS. I am on the Medtronic Insulin Pump. I was on the CGM but stopped it becouse mt BS were dropping to low 30/40 and when I finger stx check I was 80/90 this went on for month Medtronic switch pump but still was happening. Endo Dr. check and everything looked fine. My last A1c was 6.1. I take Novolog insulin for diabetes and Rebif for MS. I have been type 1 for 46 years and MS set in 6 years ago.
I too have Neuropathy but don't have the pain I use to b/c I learned how to keep tighter control and it helps. I've had D for 53 years and although I've learned to somewhat tame this beast there are other things that I have no control over. I was recently dxed with Autoimmune Gastritis which is inflammation of the stomach which caused me to now have cancer of the stomach. So far my drs are watching it since I don't want to lose my stomach, that is one of the options and the other is to lose half of my stomach. I also recently found out that I have Gastroparesis, none of these are frightening after have lived with D for all those years. I just consider them another bump in the road of life. I hope you find some peace and comfort in learning to live with what you have. I find what helps me is not only prayer but always seeking a better treatment for any of these illness..I also have Spinal Stenosis which can be very painful.
I know this was written many years ago and I'm sure you are adjusted to all of this. I was diagnosed with Daibetes on 12/21/2006. I started off with shots and been on the pump for 2 years now. I may be diagnosed with MS(Still waiting for some test results to return). Its a scary time and knowledge is the key. The good news after reading quite a lot is MS is managable! I am on anti-seizure meds now as well. Do what your suppose to do, learn as much as you can, vent, cry, etc to help you get through the day. When I heard the word MS I thought great I am gonna die. But again reading that its managable and you live a LONG life. So do what you normally do and live life to the fullest. Laugh, and make things as a comedy. we are all here if you still need someone to talk to.
