I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.
thank you Catherine! I think that there are less comlications if the control is good. And now with all the glucose meters, the new insulins( Lantus and Apidra for example), the low carbs and counting carbs... and TuDiabetes where people with diabetes can speak about and they all know what is it to be a diabetic, I really think that we can fight against comlications. Of course we are not all the same, but ... My comlications started after more than 30 years with my type 1 and the biggest ( open-heart surgery) at 35 years of type 1. My first control of blood sugar was after 1988 and my endo told me to make analyse only 3 times by day, just before the meal and I was under two shots a day, no fast insulin...My endo starts to learn about counting carbs just six months ago... So I think I'm strong! I walked a lot in my diabetic life, I danced a lot (classical since 5 years old) , You're a student of what? I went to Lyon II universty and I got a licence of History/geography. I have one sister in archeologia (doctor) and another sister who is "egytologue". I hope you're well!
