Thanks for the friend request...as for /why/ I became T1 so late in life, the Dr.'s can't say...they say it can happen at any age and can be a combination of a genetic susceptibility and some environmental trigger, like a virus, etc. But it does look like classic T1 as I was GAD and ICA antibody positive.
Hi Janine, I just now saw your friend request. I haven't been on a lot lately and I am not sure why I didn't get an email with it. I hit accept while reading the message so only saw the beginning about your friends toe.
???? about the comment you added to your friend request about A1C result ...was this related to me ?? I am confused . I have been out of country , so a bit late in responding ; never the less thanks for the add . N
Hi Janine, Thanks for being a friend! Interesting to read about your friend with discolorations in his legs.
I started to develop freckles on my legs just before my diabetes was diagnosed. Now all the dots are joining up.
Typically my doctor and the nurses in my local practice and those in hospital just shrug at it!
Now all the dots are just about joined up. have no idea how I can treat this myself?
Thank you for shining the light!I
Thanks Janina. Ever since I have had to understand how food affects the body it has amazed me how difficult and mysterious weight gain and healthy diet have been made to seem. Animals are carb intolerant by nature. Yet we constantly here how important grains are for them. The whole healthy diet crock is just maddening on both fronts.
...And thanks for the friend add. Hope the snow is departing and warmer temps are arriving in your area. We are snowed under, here. It is because I commented to my wife that I was glad we didn't purchase snow tires for the car this year, because we had very little snow.....EEEP!
Well, let's see now: I eat chicken, although it is all infected with superbugs, resistant to antibiotics, since chicken is routinely injected with antibiotics to allow them to live in the inhumane conditions. And, although the massive amounts of hormones in beef that is used to artificially grow them tend to transfer to us and cause all manner of mutancies, as well as the antibiotics for other nefarious reasons...........I eat Organic Tenderloin Steak from Spring Creek Farms, although that is about to end, what with large amounts of gristle being carefully hidden under the big label.
Haha. Maybe I'll stick with fish. Not sure what my wonderful wife will eat. Also, I try to eat Low Glycemic.
Fear not, Janina. I do adjust. But I plan for an expected amount/duration of exercise. If you're with a group, the majority may want to push on further than what you've planned for, necessitating snacks, more adjustments. Food would not be my biggest priority in a world without diabetes.
I received your friend request and am wondering if you meant to send it to someone else, because the message in it appears to be a response but I'm not aware of writing something it would be a response to.
Hey, Janina, thanks for the friend request! you are my very first "friend" on TuDiabetes! I have been on a pump since 1995. Now on an Animas 2020. My pump just cracked so had to order a new one, and went with the same - didn't want the Ping, bc I knew I would lose the remote control thingy! Thanks for all your tips - I posted back to the DrB forum, but then ended up hitting some button that threw me off the site, so.... I look forward to learning from you, the forum, and for travelling this road with some good companionship. Be well, Kristin
Thanks for the friend add, Janina. My TDD varies with 15-20 for bolus and 14 basal. Although I see some benefits to be able to prevent lows I do not consider a pump right now. I tested the navigator around christmas and this experience prooved again to me that I do not like to have something stuck in my skin all the time. If your needs for insulin are higher than normal have you considered to take metformin in combination with insulin? The metformin helps to increase the sensitivity for insulin and some members here use this combination with good results.
