This is a post on behalf of my wife who has type 1 diabetes.
She is 35, weighs approximately 16 stone (this was 13 stone in 2016 and her health did not improve at all).
We live in Anglesey, North Wales, UK..
She has been diabetic since the age of 22, and her sugar levels have not really been under control. She has many hypos..
She constantly feels unwell and nauseous. Her quality of life is drastically limited.
She is on Tougeo background insulin, which she takes once a day in the morning. She is on metformin.
We are of the opinion that there may be hormonal aspects at play which result in her fluctuating sugar levels and we are not convinced it is sileley the diabetes which affects her life, She is on the contraceptive pill at present, but will come off that shortly as that may be effecting her hormone wise.
She attended the Dafne course a while ago, but has not been able to make the most of it. She is looking into the materials so that she can get back on it as soon as possible.
Does anyone have any insight into this at all? Can you recommend any endocrinologists (in private message of course) that could assist?
Thank you in advance.
