"hi and congratulations on your excellent news.
I am T1 for almost seven years. I was dxed in my first pregnancy as T1, believe it or not. Failed the glucose tolerance test with a fasting at 337. Age 38 and what a shock! When I was diagnosed, my A1c…"
"I've been pounding it for a while. I have some buddies who are into the Beachbody fitness stuff and I tried a couple of programs (T25 and then P90X3...) which are fun. I mix a scoop of protein with a scoop of Shakeelogy and it seems to work…"
Did the study indicate a particular amount of whey protein consumed before meals in the test subjects that made the difference in post-meal blood glucose readings?
I'm interested in learning more about this study. I recently had…"
Just read a promising study (i think it is a study that has been repeated by two different researcher teams over the past decade) with findings that support whey protein consumed before meals to assist T2 diabetics. Does anyone know if this benefit also pertains to T1 on insulin? Apparently, whey acts somewhat like glucagon in the body. It has shown to reduce post meal BG numbers by 26% in T2. Any info on whey use for T1 is appreciated. Of course not planning on stopping insulin.See More
"This is all interesting. I too was diagnosed with T1 later in life (age 38) in pregnancy with GAD 65 positive antibody testing. Could be LADA, but in the end, it is really T1. I know there is a strong connection between T1 and Addison's because…"
"I wonder if it has the same effect on BG that steroidal meds do, whether an oral course or injected. It shoots your BG up something awful, I needed 250% of my usual insulin dose and of course put on several pounds. The effect lasted several weeks…"
"This is interesting -I was dx with Type 1 at age 16, and went on Accutane when I was about 24. I received no warnings about effects on BG, but to be honest I was not exactly diligent in those days, to say the least. That was back in the early…"
"Sorry for necroposting, but my husband took Accutane as a teen and was diagnosed with D in his 30s, he was misdiagnosed as type 2 initially, but then later also developed Addison's disease, and later still (3/2013) our daughter was dxd with…"
"I took accutane in the mid to late 80's. I remember getting blood tested every few weeks. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about two years after I graduated from college. So from time I took the drug to diagnosis was about 6 years, around…"
"What you describe sounds like MODY type3: mild, passed through generation but usually easy to control and very responsive to sulfonylurea. I am not a fan of sulfonulurea in general but in this group of patients it hits the target as it seems that…"
"Thank you so much for your post. I was on NPH 2x/day(intermediate act) when pregnant and after pregnancy, I was switched to Lantus (long) act. I did not like it, since I thought there was a definite peak where I would go love (but I could never…"
"I tried this, but it did not seem to work since i was not able to reduce the minimum basal rate. Every hour (unless I suspend all together), a minimum of .05 units is given and it will not give less. I think the OmniPod is a truly amazing pump. I…"
Hey, Melissa. (Great name, btw.) I noticed that you're still using the default "welcome - upload your photo" hand image as your profile image. If you'd like to add some kind of picture to be your profile photo, look for the "Settings" link in the upper right portion of each page (next to the little silver gears). The very first option in Settings will walk you through changing your profile image. Good luck!
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
