Profile Information

The PRIMARY person in my life who has diabetes has
Type 1 or type 1.5 (LADA) diabetes
How do you hope to benefit from TuDiabetes?
Connect with others who have the same Diabetes-related health issues that I have.
Date diagnosed
January 1, 1982
Type of treatment/devices you use
Pump
What pump model do you use, if any?
Minimed
Tell us more about you (optional)
I have had Type 1 Diabetes for 30 years (age 9 when I was diagnosed). I am on insulin pump therapy. I am a mother of 2 beautiful children.
As many long time diabetics, I am beginning to suffer from various long term complications. Unfortunately in my teens and early 20's I didn't love myself enough to look after my diabetes, and am paying for it now.
I was diagnosed last year with peripheral neuropathy in my feet, legs and hands. I have had CTS on both hands, as well as 4 surgeries and counting for trigger fingers.
Now I look after myself in hopes of delaying the progress of complications. I want to be able to see my grandchildren, an idea that didn't occur to me when I was younger. Ah well, the follies of youth.
Now I am happy, and relatively healthy. I remain positive, because I give myself no other choice. I am so thrilled to find a community such as TuDiabetes. It has been a long search.
