It started in August of 2007, three friends went out to dinner - had a great time and talked about lots of different things; family, friends, work, children, health and yes, diabetes and our husbands. All three of us have a husband with type 1 diabetes. Yes, we planned this get-together, it's been something I'd been wanting to do for a long time. Since then, we've met every 2-3 months and catch up on…

Help for a wife of a type 1 diabetic

Posted on February 20, 2008 at 7:50am 4 Comments

I posted this in the "type 1" forum - because I wanted some input of other diabetics... here it is again on this page for spouses/significant others, just in case you didn't see it there...



I have a rather large problem. My husband - a very smart, sweet, giving, loving man - has some sort of "block" when it comes to checking his blood sugar. He has hypoglycemia unawareness, although he won't admit it. He basically refuses to check his blood sugar before he gets into his truck. To… Continue

So - I did it!



I've been talking about it for a long time, but I was dragging my feet, I

guess.



I’ve been searching for a support group for spouses of diabetics – and they don’t exist – or at least I haven’t found one yet. I know two

ladies whose husbands have diabetes – one that lives in my town – and every

time we saw each other, we’d…

Hypoglycemia and Vomiting

Posted on September 23, 2007 at 7:33am 6 Comments

My husband has had 5 severe hypo episodes in the past month. That's more than he has had total in the previous 2 years. Something is up - and I don't know what.

By severe, I mean, low enough that I can't get him to drink (BS of 35)- so I

have to call the paramedics. If it's just 50 or so, I can usually get him

to drink some juice, and he comes around. These usually happen in the

middle of the night. But that’s not…

I've been searching for a support group for spouses of diabetics. They don't exist, as far as I can see. I bet there are plenty of us in need of just this kind of service. I'm not qualified to start one, but I think I have 2 friends who have agreed to go out for coffee sometime soon. That may be our official/unofficial start. I don't want to bitch. I want to talk to somebody who knows what I'm going through. I want to hear others' stories. I want to possibly help and be helped.… Continue

Hey JLM, sorry I am just now answering your post at my page. My husband is T-1. His latest A1c was 6.1 for which we are truly grateful. His other lab values were also good. We keep close track of his blood glucose, checking at least 4-6 times a day! I tell everyone that I am his Insulin pump! LOL. Please drop back by again. I am doing some reading about C-Peptides and its effect on Insulin. Very interersting. There is a group here for that as well.

yes, adam is my fiance and he has type 1. we are pretty good. Had a little scare a few weeks ago when he was in the hospital for a weekend. he had a stomach virus and i wasnt able to bring his sugar up so i had to take him to the e.r. even after his sugar was back to normal he had no regained the ability to speak coherently. they think his blood sugar was so low for an extended amount of time that he may have had a seizure. he has completely returned to normal though and is using Lantas and Novalog which are fantastic! Thanks for the welcome!
