Hi Tracie, welcome! Do you use basal and bolus insulins, and determine meal dosages with carb counting? That type of management started for me in the 1990s and it has helped very much. I have been type 1 for 66 years, and am very healthy. If we take good care of ourselves, we can have long, healthy lives.

Welcome Tracie. I hope you bond with our other Type 1 members and gain a lot from the friendships. Also, we have some good recipes and are always on the look for others!

Good luck,
