"Thanks, Gerri and Paul. No, I don't typically go high between meals. I think I mentioned on here that I did some adjusting of my basal and I think I finally got it right! Usually the only time that happens is with the nut butter lunch. I was…"

Tuatara replied to Debi J.'s discussion 'Bolusing for Protein or Low Carb Meals?'
"Nope - tuatara (me) uses injections. Lots of them. I was wondering if anyone else has tried more than one injection to deal with high protein meals. For example - one 15 mins before to catch the carbs and another small one after (say) an hour to…"

Gerri replied to Debi J.'s discussion 'Bolusing for Protein or Low Carb Meals?'
"Zoe, Tuatara has a pump. It's probably from the fat since fat slows digestion more than protein. The protein in nut butters isn't difficult to digest because it's already pulverized & also isn't a large amount of…"

Profile Information

Type of treatment/devices you use
Pump
I'm a 31 y.o. married type 1 diabetic. Originally from NY, I have lived in Utah for 7 years. I wasn't planning on staying here but I met my husband. And, oh yeah, got diabetes right after that at age 25. I've been on the pump for 1 year and I love it.

Even after 6 years (this month), I still don't feel like a "real" diabetic. I didn't grow up with it and I'm self-conscious that I'm not the stereotypical skinny type 1. I still have periods of denial and have literally a whole life of terrible non-D eating habits to get over. Frankly, I didn't find life particularly easy half the time pre-D, so I was really in trouble after diagnosis.

I struggle with my weight a lot and have gained 30 lbs since diagnosis (when I was probably at a good weight). Type 2 runs in my family and I must be insulin resistant as I sure do take a lot of insulin.

Over the years, I have had "bursts" of good and bad, and it's getting harder to get good results after periods of bad. I feel like mentally I should be able to get a grip on this thing, but I get frustrated a lot. As I am getting older and don't want to miss the opportunity to have a family... well, let's say it's time to grow up.

I added some photos of my dogs, Legend and Lore. They are my babies and bring me a lot of joy. I find the unconditional love of a dog is one of the sweetest, truest things in the world.
