Since my treatment began on 7/24 I have been feeling much better. I've seen the endo once, and he put me on 5u Humalog w/ meals (which I sometimes adjust for more carb-heavy meals), and 15u Lantus every morning. I tend to be be high more than low, which is preferable to the other way around (says my T1DM grandpa).
I've also noticed that I have a high sensitivity to hypoglycemia - I start sweating and shaking when I get into the 70's and below. I feel like that's a good thing though, because I don't want to get taken by surprise. My DM education is starting soon, and the endo says he wants to get me on a pump, so there is a lot of stuff going on for me in the near future.
Furthermore, I have found that I can actually skip my meal-time shot when I'm working my weekend job (police foot patrol for 8hrs+) due to the level of physical activity that it demands. My efforts shift to keeping my BG up during those times.
I'm seeing the endo again on 9/5, and awaiting my bloodwork in the mail. I'm interested to see what my A1C is now (was 12.8% at diagnosis).
