Default introduction

I am 23 years of age and have had diabetes for 2 years now. I was fine one day and sick the next and have been struggling ever since. I'm still learning and thought this would be a good place to start.

Hello Angeldust, welcome! Since you are type 1, I hope you are using both basal and bolus insulins, and use carb counting to determine your premeal dosages. If you are not familiar with carb counting, you may want to purchase a copy of the book "Using Insulin" by John Walsh. You can find the book on

I was diagnosed in 1945, when I was 6. After 67 years of type 1, I am very healthy. If you take good care of yourself you can have a long, healthy life.

Ask all the questions you want!


I have been Type 1 for 73 years. My A1c is 6.2. I pump with the MM 630, and I am using the Dexcom G5.
