Type 1 for 20 yrs. and Friendly

I have had type 1 diabetes for the last 20 years. I had inherited it from my dad's side of the family. I was diagnosed with IDDM at the age of 10 and am now starting to feel the long term side effects from running high blood sugars. I still struggle to keep myself controlled although it's from being high as I rarely have hypos any more. Want to chat or any questions feel free to ask :)

    Have you seen your doctor about counting carbs for each meal and/or snack?

  • Thank you for the warm welcome! And yes I have been on the DAFNE course but find it hard to stick to, but it has helped a lot with the understanding of carb counting and I am better at it than I was a few years ago ☺

  • You're welcome! It's good to know that the DAFNE course is helpful for the carb counting.

  • Hi Ali, Well done for keeping well. I have been T1 since England won the World Cup. Too long in lots of ways. More than 50yrs of sticking pins in ! I like the bit about being friendly too ! Welcome to the forum & ask if you need to please.

  • Hi

    I have been diagnosed with type 1 recently, I am 26 and struggling to gain as much knowledge as I can on this. My dr. Suggested me about carb counts as it is very helpful in managing blood sugars.

    Hope this helps, if any one having anything new to tell pls feel free to provide new information on this 😊
