"Actually sounds like good news, Melissa, because if it is an infection it can be treated with antibiotics!"

"Melissa, is there a chance you have a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Having just got over one, that comes to mind when you describe excessive urination. I believe we are more subject to them."

T1 with Excessive Urination despite Very Good Control

Hi, I am just curious if anyone else experiences a high urine volume per void despite good to excellent blood sugar control. I typically only go five to six times per day, but the urine amount seems excessive. And I only drink about 2500 mL of water/liquids each day.Can even brief high blood sugar numbers (spikes after meals before insulin has kicked in and/or peaked) cause large volumes of urine? Obviously a question for a medical professional, but just thought I would see if any other T1 is,…See More

"http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/08/140805132248.htm it acts like a glucagon-like-peptide and helps secrete insulin. You are correct that this may not help T1. Maybe LADA 1.5. Thanks for your reply!"

Whey Protein for T1?

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

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!

Hi Melissa,

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

G.A.T.E. website:
http://www.meetup.com/Type1Diabetes-GP-SupportGroup/

I hope you will consider joining us for a future meeting.

Thanks,
Margaret
