I was diagnosed in March '09 with addison's disease. My endo did a full autoimmune profile on me and my GAD antibodies show up as "3". My a1c was 5.6, which i guess is a little high for normal people. Endo says that I will become type 1 one day, who knows when but to watch my blood sugars. My wife has been type 1 for 9 years so I use her meter about 1x a day.
Thanks for the welcome Patti. I've been looking for information concerning the omnipod which I just started using because it really takes a lot of getting used to and I figured this would be a great place to find out suggestions from what other people are doing. Hope to meet and make lots of new friends on here!
Thanks for thiking of me Patti, thoughtful as always may you abound with blessings. I hope you and your family are well we are doing well. Glad we finally have summer, previous weeks or should I say months we had been experiencing an overabundance of wet weather. But we're finally out of the monsoon and all the vegetation is bright and colorful.....hope you are enjoying good weather also.
Hi Patti, thanks for checkin' in. Glad to hear you're pursuing a passion. That's what keeps us goin'. The trauma definitely can have an impact on our system, according to my studies.

Your passion reminds me of mine when I first discovered that this disease can be reduced to a minor nuisance when one is armed with the right information.
Thankyou, Ms. PattiL. I am ok and finally getting back in the swing of things. Have been in a major depression slump but am OK now. Glad to hear about the book, you will do great and have wonderful support behind you.
