Do You Blame Your Diabetes?

When I get sick my first instinct is to grab my blood checker. Do you blame your diabetes when you feel under the weather? http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/07/is-diabetes-always-to-blame.html

1 Week In to Diabetes

Over the course of the last 4 months I have had a thirst that was completely unquenchable. This is not a metaphor, I literally would drink and drink and drink water all day long and never be sated. Along with this I was experiencing serious acid reflux in my throat that was extremely debilitating, would limit my work and my home life. I was constantly tired though I am very active, eat very healthy and get plenty of rest.

I have been working very hard this last year trying to figure…

I have MAJOR issues!

I hope doing this blog will help me and some other people who struggle with Diabetes. Anyway, here's my story.



I'm type 1,since age 4. I am 20 now and my A1c is 13%

Terrible right?



I don't know what it is. I haven't been able to get it together on my own. I don't wanna die. I know what I need to do but Its hard for me to do it for some reason. I have some discipline...clearly not enough. I don't react to my diabetes until I feel symptoms. I'm only getting older and… Continue

The Heat Induced Button Error

I was celebrating my friends wedding this weekend in the sweltering heat when a new alert showed up on my pump. Apparently my pump wasn't happy about the heat either. http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-heat-induced-button-error.html

Story of My Daughter's Type 1 Diagnosis at 18 months of age

Sorry Im so late with this but I finally got our story done.

 

My daughter Melanie was diagnosed in 2006 at the age of 18 months. I would say over a month or two starting in either November or December 2006 she was getting symptoms such as drinking (it never seemed to be enough no matter how much she drank but it was maybe a little more than usual). If you have kids you know they love to drink and constantly ask for drinks so it was hard to go by this.…

Keep on Swimming

It has been awhile since I felt this exhausted after a workout. I try to swim at least three times a week, and I've been incrementally increasing the distance over the last couple of weeks to avoid hitting a "plateau." I don't consider myself a fitness fanatic, but I do believe exercise is important for my physical and mental health. However, as a type 1, I find myself constantly worried about the effects of exercise on my blood sugar and…

Traveling with Type 1: Best way to keep insulin cool on long trips?

Well, hello there. I'm new to the TuDiabetes community! I've had type 1 (possibly LADA...?) for four years. I love to travel. I was actually diagnosed while studying abroad in Chile. Thankfully, I am in good health with no complications thus far. Recently, my husband and I decided to do a 10-day group trip to Peru and Bolivia. I'm excited to be returning to South America for the first time since I was diagnosed, but apprehensive at the same…

UPDATE ON ASHA APRIL EDITION

Although training never ever ends for a service dog, Asha is fully functional and saving my life each and every day. She alerts to both highs and lows at levels that allow me to take care of it without getting sick. 4.0mmol/L for lows and 10.0mmol/L for highs.

I always have my emergency kit with me while we are out and about, either in my purse or in her back pack. (contains my monitor, insulin and a few sources of sugar such as dex tabs, candy, glucagon shot and always a juice…

The Letter I Wish I Could Give Her (My 30th Diaversary Letter to Myself)

April 4, 1983



Dear Christel,

You knew what the doctor would say when she stood in the doorway of the examining room, staring at the expedited lab work . The checklist in Time magazine you read in class a week earlier gave you all the clues. (And sweetie, you really should have been studying…) Mentally checking every box next to the symptoms, it said: “You might have diabetes.”

Now it’s confirmed, but you have no idea what that really means. Mom and Dad do however,…
