And my 18 month A1C was a freaking 6 down from an original dx of 15.4!!! I couldn't believe it. Even my MD's were amazed at how quickly I've taken and owned my T1D. I've still got work to do as I…Continue

I'm a newly dx'd T1 who as a professional communicator can find no words to express how I feel. It's been a little over a month since being told my BG was over 600 with a subsequent A1C of 15+. I…Continue

Closing in on My 2nd Anniversary...

...AND????I just got news that my A1C has continued its descent. A month and a half away from my 2nd Anniversary and my A1C has dropped to 5.8 down from 6.0 at my year and a half point. As a Disabled Veteran, I'm dealing with the continued progression of my military injuries and have most recently lost the use of my right foot and had surgery on my spine (Artificial Disc Replacement). My MD says I'm driving her crazy with my goal of getting and staying down around 5.0, but I'm feeling great and…See More

My First Anniversary...

Hi TuDiabetes Family,

I wanted to send a gigantic thanks for all of the responses and kind thoughts left after my first post. So much has happened over the last year, BUT the best of them all is that I now own my Diabetes. When Diagnosed in December 2010 my A1C was 15.4. By March 2010 it had dropped to 7.2 and 6.2 at my anniversary date in December. I've gone from not knowing what to finally sharing it with my family and being able to discuss it freely.

As I reflect back over…

Definitely a lot going on for you, right now. Good luck on the education.

Noticed your post about being a distance runner and wanted to let you know that diabetes and running go great together.

TeamType1 has an amateur running team and triathlon team. (I'm a member of the running team). One of our key races for 2011 is actually the Chicago Marathon. You can learn more about us at http:/www.TeamType1.org

And if you no longer run, the "distance runner mindset" will still serve you will as you learn more. :)

Best,

Marcus Grimm
