Hey T1s!!!
Whether you were diagnosed back in the day when it was "Juvenile Diabetes;" you are a newly diagnosed college freshman; or you were diagnosed well into your second career, the reality is that 85% of those living with type 1 diabetes are over 18!
Without diabetes camps, it's hard to meet other adults living with T1D with whom you can share information, ask questions, and get support.
That's why Beer & Basals is for You!
Beer & Basals is a casual gathering for adults with T1D who want to get to know others living with T1D and expand their circle of support. Beer & Basals will be hosted by Carb DM volunteers Breanne Harris and Katie Craft.
Our first meeting is coming up on Monday, February 27, 7 - 9 pm. Join us at Crepevine in Palo Alto (367 University Ave)! Hope to see you there!
Katie

Hi Jimmer- Two years ago when I knew something was wrong for myself I did a lot of research before determining I was LADA/Type 1, not Type 2 as I'd been diagnosed. I came up with a list of 5 things that I knew showed that and when I finally did see an endo, she just checked each one off and said, "you are type 1". (By the way I was diagnosed at age 58!. Here is the five things:
1. Thin (I actually lost a lot after diagnosis.
2. Short time before I needed insulin (15 months instead of the 10 years + is normal for type 2's.
3. Insulin sensitive - I always took a fairly low dose of insulin compared to a type 2.
4. Another autoimmune disorder (thyroid)
5. Low c-peptide test.

You have at least the first 3!

As for your question about insulin doses, we are all different so the answer to whether you are taking the right amount is if it keeps you in your target range more often than not! I don't remember from your post your Lantus dose but it was more like a type 1 dose than a type 2. (In general type 2's take more insulin due to resistance). When did you start insulin and how was that decided?
