Hello. My name is Ethan and my son, Orion, is a T1D. We live near Burlington, VT and I've been looking to get involved with some sort of community for a while now but never took the step to. Here is my fb link if you want to get in touch that way: https://www.facebook.com/ethan.casavant
Hi Ann, my middle name is Ann. I don't know how old you and your husband are but I'm now 70. I learned how to pump in 1999, so that would have made me about 56 years old. During that time I had Type 1 for 41 years. I had the same problem your husband had with hypos at night. My husband and I would spend nights in the ER because of it. My Endo referred me to a CDE and it was all uphill from there. I believe you're never too old to learn, we might learn a little slower but we do learn. I'm encouraging your husband to not give up and think he's too old because as long as we have breath we're never too old.
Hi. I'm Debrah, and my husband is a Type 1 for over 40+ years! I am a Registered Nurse, so I assist with the management of his T1. Actually, my husband and I manage it and the doctor oversees it. :) My husband is the best source for knowing what is going on due to the length of his affliction. We test several times a day and use NPH daily plus the physiological pattern for tighter maintenance, i.e. taking a bolus before meals based on present blood glucose and amount of carbs. When the doctor asked if he would be interested in a pump, I spoke up and said, "I am his pump." :) -- but my husband doesn't want the pump, due to his age. I would encourage all who are young enough to understand the working and mechanism and maintenance of having an insulin pump to go for it. We have relatives and friends with pumps and it makes for a better compliance and control of the disease. It takes so much diligence to stay on top of this disease, and it can really get you down at times. Carbs, infection, emotions, worry, stress, and even the season changes affect his blood sugar. We can count on a nightly episode of hypoglycemia, even with an HS snack at bedtime. I keep icing ready along with juices and other quick easy to swallow snacks. Also keep an emergency kit of Glucagon on hand, which is a small miracle in a bottle! T-1s are so prone to middle of the night lows. My heart goes out to all diabetics, for it truly is a very serious disease, which can produce devastating complications. My prayer is for a cure. God bless you all.
Hello Everyone. :) My name is Dave Davis, I was diagnosed with Type II back in December of 2012.
