Hi, Thank you for the nice welcome. I am so glad to be able to talk to people who are going through the same thing I am. It has been an adjustment for my family. I am type 1, just recently re diagnosed from type 2. I am now just on insulin. I use to eat what I wanted and ride my bike to balance it. I am finding out it doesn't work so well anymore.

Hi Jamie: Welcome! I hope you are doing okay and adjusting to the Type 1 diagnosis. Yes, using insulin is difficult, and I have always found the most challenges around exercise (hypos with strenuous exercise). Check out some of the groups like LADA diabetics and Athletic Diabetics. Have you gotten good diabetes education on using insulin? I always suggest that people get books by John Walsh ("Using Insulin" and "Pumping Insulin") and Gary Scheiner's book "Think Like a Pancreas." Let us know how you are doing!
