Sorry...I am not shy, I just have no clue how to post a photo. This is my dear departed greyhound from an old file. I was diagnosed with type 1, 3 years ago at 50. People wondered how I got "adult onset diabetes" while living such a healthy lifestyle. Hmmm......shows you how uninformed the lucky, general public is. I jumped in and read everything I could get my hands on and started out committed to besting this with tight control. After some scary lows and raging hormonal highs, I have lost my enthusiasm....and have the higher A1c's to show for it. I use Lantus and Humalog....I am a snacker so dose up to 8 times a day. Despite this very bad luck, I am so lucky to have not gotten this as a kid, I am so lucky to be knowledgeable and interested in nutrition, and I am so lucky to be diagnosed at a time when there are so many advances and resources....like this one. I really credit all of you who have dealt with this for a long time. I'd love to hear your histories and hints for keeping motivated. Good luck to us all. It could always be worse, but Man....this is an adventure.
