I have recently begun following the low-carb paleo diet and am loving it. One thing I am having issues with is nighttime lows. I have been adjusting my basal rates to lower the amount of insulin I am…Continue

"Lil MaMa, I agree with you! Many people are posting of Facebook, saying their Minimed CGM's are giving good results. I do not see how that is possible since you and I dad NOT have good results. I wish I could use the Dexcom with the G4 sensors,…"

"Awesome post. Intentionally stopping proper management would only make me feel worse. This is also the big thing people without diabetes will never understand."

Hi Sean, I enjoyed reading your recent post on 'living a normal life' with type 1. It gave me a bit of insight on how to deal with my son who is 15 diag at 10. We are in the transition stage where he wants to do it all himself while I am there for advice and always checking his numbers and looking for trends making adjustments which I discuss with him. He is of the opinion that he can eat what ever he wants and cover, I have never been overly restrictive with him with this because I would rather him be compliant than always fighting with him about what he puts in his mouth.... I too feel lower carb would be a better choice but maybe not a realistic choice for his teen psyche as well as his constant hunger .... I too am a realist and realize his life will never be carefree... I like that word better than normal what is normal anyways!! but thanks for your refreshing post, honestly and insight, congrats on finding your way to health! Amy

I like your suggestion, a lot. Ideally that would help me, but due to patient-doctor confidentiality My endo can't let me know how to find these other diabetics. She did however tell me that there were quite a few that are about my age in the area. I just need to keep and eye out.

I am so jealous of you in Ft. Collins. I lived in Boulder for 28 yrs. and Colo. all my life until I had to relocate ten years ago. You are so lucky and also have a beautiful dog. J
