no! no complications yet! thank god! are you allowed drive because of your problems? how are your eyes!! my sight has been very blurry lately i might have to get them checked out!
Well done with all the runnin!! im really lazy but very consous about my weight iswell!! i tend to cut down on carbs and exercise more, my eating habits are terrible i really need to change!!
I've had soo many different reactions with hypos.. One time I had a really fast drop (went from 11 to 2 in half an hour) and I was walking down the corridor at school and I just started sobbing. LOL. Luckily one of my teachers found me and realised what was going on. That was awkward. Other times, tho, I've been as low as 0.6 and not reacted as badly, apart from a lot of shaking. Haha. It's reaaally good! My A1C went from 7.8 to 6.4 in three months of being on it (although I expect it's way higher now 'cause the past couple of months have been crappy). I'm really sensitive to insulin (1 unit drops me 8mmol/l..) so it's good being able to sometimes take like 0.1 or 0.2 units. That must be scary to get violent when your low, I hate how sometimes people don't realise that what you say when you're low isn't really what you mean.. Know what I mean? It's like, you've got no control at all over it.
I've never needed an ambulance with a hypo.. That must be so scary. Most of the bad hypos I've had are during the day, tho, idk why but I don't seem to get as low at night. I started on the pump (minimed 522) in July, and I love it! When do you think you're gonna get one? I go to Colchester General, you?
Yeah, i find the more insulin i take the more weight i put on. Insulin is a hormone ya see, and when the body doesnt use it up it is stored as fat in the cells!! or so i was told!!
Im delighted to hear you got urs under control!! m havn problems with changing my nasty habits, but i know some day i will be able to turn things around.
What kind of complecations where you having trouble with?? x x
yeah!! a while ago i was seriously thinking about the pump!! but i have to get better control first before they even consider changing me over!!
im using novo rapid and lantus!!!
How bout you!! how old are you again!!
