I've been a T1D since 1984, used an insulin pump since 1987, and a CGM since 2009. Low carb, moderate protein, and high fat has been my way of eating since 2012. It has allowed me to make tremendous gains in blood sugar control and quality of life. I lost weight, reduced insulin intake, lowered my A1c, and generally restored sanity to my metabolic life. I lived for 30 years in the San Francisco Bay Area until an April 2016 move to Portland, Oregon. I've been paired with a Yellow Lab hypoglycemia alert dog, Norm, since 2010. I pursue four major blood glucose goals (in order of importance): Time in Range, 65-140 mg/dl, >= 80%. Time low <= 5%. Standard Deviation <= 30 mg/dl. Average < = 105 mg/dl. I walk almost every day, counting about 1400 miles/year. I wear a Fitbit to track steps/miles and monitor my blood glucose level on a wrist watch. From May 2012 through December 2016 my A1c ranged from 5.9-6.4%. Read Sugar Surfing in 2015. It changed my philosophy of managing my diabetes and seeing it as a dynamic process instead of a static one. I now (December 2016) use a do-it-yourself open-source hybrid artificial pancreas, Loop. The Loop system consists of an app running on my iPhone 6, my Dexcom G4 + Share CGM, a MiniMed 722 insulin pump, and a frequency translator/repeater called a RileyLink.
