Isn't Juvenile Diabetes an Antiquated term?

Started this discussion. Last reply by acidrock23 Jul 27. 18 Replies

I see this terminology all the time, especially JDRF. Maybe after 50+ years of Type 1, I am no longer juvenile and hate to be corralled in that fence.Continue

I know some of you live outside the U.S. and are American citizens. How do you get supplies and prescriptions? I am checking our healthcare coverage and looks like we will be OK for doctors and even…Continue

What happened?

Had a light dinner last night--some broiled pork tenderloin and eggplant with 15 carbs of bread crumbs on top. Was 83 and bloused .8, based on BG and I:C ratio, at 6 pm. I ate--even added some sweet tomato butter that I did not include in the bolus calculation.By 7 pm, my CGM began to alert me to a low and continued until 1:00 am. I drank juice over that time--about 2 cups total that equals about 60 carbs, which would require 3.5 units to cover.I also had 3 crackers with jam about 8pm, and a…See More

"Even for 3-4 week vacations, I agree. Room temp is fine. I never let insulin out of my sight. If it was very warm I would use a Frio."

Hi - I just read your comment re restless leg syndrome. I have had it since my early teens and it keeps getting worse and worse (I'm now 60). I cannot go on a long car trip, or even to a concert or lecture or movie without taking a load of requip, which then in 2 hours gives me the side effect of a major frontal headache.
I think most of my doctors think I'm exaggerating how bad it is. One doc put me on iron supplements, which upset my stomach. I even ordered an expensive TENS machine off the web, which, essentially did nothing.
I used to get immediate relief from a hot bath, but, that no longer works. Sometimes I have to just stand and read for a couple of hours until the flare passes. At this point, it is far more challenging to live with than the db. Please let me know if you have fouind anything that helps.
