"I was on the Lantus Solostar patient assistance as well as Novo Nordisk. Both will only ship the insulin to a doctor's office, which in my experience was the source of much pain. Doctor's offices really don't handle medicine that much…"

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
I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.
You must be responding well to insulin. I have heard that insulin can put weight on, but I have never had that issue. Only from to much food. Exercise really helps me with control. It is usually a matter of eating the right amount depending on the amount of exercise. Also insulin on board too. (I am on an insulin pump) This is a great place to ask questions. I am rather new to TuDiabetes, but I am getting a lot from this community.
Welcome chris. I'm so glad you found us. And I'm glad you are diving into the discussions. Everyone here wants to help---when I joined 2 years ago I new squat---had to self-educate and this site has been such a boon. Be sure to check out all the groups and never fear to ask anything at all!.....Take care.....Judith in Portland
