Diabetic Accounts

So I have Type 1 Diabetes. I was diagnosed over a year ago and I would just want to use this blog to discuss all the things that have happened to me, and that will happen to me, that involve diabetes.

Glucose Levels and The Heat

Hey everyone!!!
I’ve been absent lately because I don’t have very good access to the internet while I’m in Marbella.
When I got here (marbella, south of spain) I suddenly spent a few days being low for no aparent reason so I decreased the amount of Levemir that I did and that sorted out the problem.
A week ago I started going high all the time. I thought my insulin was ruines because of the heat but that was not the case. So I’ve had to triple the amount of insulin I do.
I just hate when the environment affects my diabetes!!!!! Does it happen to anyone else?

Oy! DIABETES DIABETES :)

First I’ll start with a welcome to the tumblrbetic community, and to answer your question I’d say just take it one blood sugar check at a time don’t think about what could happen. I’ll use a line that I’ve come accustomed to tell everyone “we have diabetes, diabetes doesn’t have us..” the tumblrbetics here will welcome you and if you need anything don’t be afraid to come my way. If I don’t know the answer I’ll lead you in the right direction

TYPE 1 DIABETICS are AMAZING ...

diabetesyoyo:

Ask yourself…

  • Can you inject up to 7 times a day just because you ate some food
  • Prick your fingers up to 10 times a day to make sure the blood sugar is doing OK
  • Pay for some of the medicine from your own hard earned cash just because the government does not pay for it all
  • Wake up at at 3am…
