Aloha Charles, similar, no family history of diabetes, reasonably fit and think I have learned a valuable lesson out of all this , working excessively long hours , lack of sleep causing stress may be a trigger that can be avoided. It appears that a high percentage of folks (Adults) with T1 have had some form of excessive stress leading up to a diagnosis.
What sort of bike Charles ?
