Yes, I could not have had such tight control without the Dex.

Oh no Shawnmarie!! I really hope you can keep your Dex!! It has been a life saver for me...

I've been bolusing from the beginning and using basal for a little over a year. Basal needs are sloooowly creeping up, but my pancreas still seems to be doing its best to help out. Just got a CGM three weeks ago and love it! Unfortunately, the day after I inserted my first sensor my employer announced we were changing insurance companies, so my time with Mr. Dex may be short lived. However, I'm learning a lot about how long insulin really takes to work in my body, my night time patterns, etc. I'll be bummed if I don't have a CGM when the pancreas decides to completely give up the ghost.

How is everyone doing?

I must say I feel so much better with the bolus, I knew I was feeling bad as the T1D was progressing, just not how bad.
The support here has been fantastic, and the transition has been made easier by hearing/knowing that others here have been there done that.

At first, I was dreading the progression and holding out hope that I would be different, that my T1/LADA would stay in the early phase forever. Once I accepted that it's gonna do what it's gonna do, it was actually really freeing. I'm finally feeling more like my pre-T1 self again. Good luck as your own D journey unfolds!

I imagine so, yet still a turning point as I have had the on board insulin maker working well enough to keep the shots away so long. I am feeling much better,(with the bolus) but still sad that things are progressing.

You can still be honeymooning even if you need to bolus. I've been bolusing from the beginning and my honeymoon continues. It's on the downhill slide, but not done yet.

38 months, then Bronchitis= Bolus for meals.
The Honey moon may be ending.
