Tell us more about you (optional)
I was diagnosed in February of 1983, at the age of 6. I have been hospitalized one time, DKA-1994, since 1983, due to my diabetes. I started carb counting with Humalog coverage in 1997 and started "pumping" in 1983. I have had laser PRP for diabetic retinopathy in 2000 and also had PRP in April 2005 for a tear in my retina. In November of 2005 I underwent a pars plans vitrectomy to repair the tear. I have worn a CGM since 2009, with some pretty good results. I also have stage 2 chronic kidney disease. I have been a Union electrical worker in the construction industry since August 2001. In 2011, I was granted a Federal Diabetes Exemption Waiver from the FMCSA, which subsequently led to having my Class A CDL truck driver training school paid for 100%. Don't let diabetes control your destiny.

Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
