June 11, 2010 was my 1 year anniversary with Type 1.5 diabetes. Let me tell you it sure has been a roller coaster ride. And boy am I glad 2009 is over. First I was laid off in February (on my birthday) and then in June find out I have diabetes. What a year. Anyways I have been fighting my medical insurance on approving a pump for me. After 3 appeals and my last appeal going to a third party for review. I finally got approved. Any suggestions on how to prepare. Any good books out there regarding… Continue
I was diagnosed as Type 2 and because I was thin my endo had doubts. I was put on metformin and did well on it but lost too much weight. My endo then did more tests and found out out that I was LADA, Type 1.5. They just started me on insulin and I'm a little concerned. They gave me Levemir 10units before breakfast. And then Novolog as below
Glucose: Insulin Dose:
under 100 0 units
100-150 2 units
151-200 4 units
201-250 6 units
251-300 8 units
Hi Elisa..I know diabetes can be a struggle for sure and depressing. I've had diabetes for the majority of my life so I can understand for sure! I'm glad to hear you are starting to feel better though. Depression is certainly difficult to cope with and is very common for diabetics because there is so much to learn, understand and deal with especially after you are first diagnosed. Hang in there, take one day at a time, do the best you can and continue to learn as much as possible. I'm still learning even after almost 27 yrs now!! Take care and enjoy your special day!!
