Type 1 Diabetes and Gastric Bypass

I am a 29 year old type 1 diabetic. I've been T1 for 24 years now. I am a Medtronic pump user, CGM (for now), and i'm overweight. I have been fighting this battle for a long time and i've tried everything. Symlin, phentermine, lots of exercise, diet, and also Victoza. Victoza has helped but not enough, and it's not a long term solution. Luckily, my doctor is very supportive, as I look into this "Last Resort".I know most insurances cover the GB, but for the moment i do not have insurance. Long…See More

"Alwaysscanuck- Sound more like anxiety/ panic attacks than sleep apnea.. in my opinion. I've had panic attacks and that's what happens to me in the middle of the night. Not fun!"

Hi Char,

I am also a member of this group and a Type 1 Diabetic. I thought you might be interested in meeting other Type 1s and wanted to let you know that I am the organizer of a meetup group called G.A.T.E.-Gastroparesis And Type1 Diabetes Exchange.

It is for Type 1s as well as for those with Gastroparesis and their caregivers. You can have either condition separately and don't need to have both to join. It is a support and activities group for people with similar conditions to interact, network, participate in discussions, ask questions, share experiences, or to vent frustrations. I will also have guest speakers periodically.

This is a new group that will meet in Union City on the third Sunday of each month starting May 17. If you would like to learn more, please check us out

G.A.T.E. website:
http://www.meetup.com/Type1Diabetes-GP-SupportGroup/

I hope you will consider joining us for a future meeting.

Thanks,
Margaret

Hello, from a 91 computer rookie,who has found a way to mentor to members from areas high in diabetes and low in diabetes, info.I was clinically dead, in BOSTON, in 1977, with a BG of 880, with my second chance have been a ROLE MODEL to over 40.000 diabetics. Could you please do me a favour? Would you please call 5 DIABETICS and ask them to join me, on JULY 30 INSULIN APPRECIATION DAY, and give THANKS FOR INSULIN, giving hundreds of millions of US a chance to live healthy lifestyle and productive livesTODAY. Check out www.restorethebantinghomestead. com to see why AMIGOS will be selling BLUE ROSE? This flowerwas chosen because of its meaning,'ATTAINING THE IMPOSSIBLE' Check out your local LION CLUBS, they have a excellent diabetes prevention & awareness program. clarence.haynes@sympatico.ca
