welcome Awaleh :) it's great to hear you have your diabetes under control. It must have been annoying that you had a tough time at first. What sort of insulin are you on... you only inject twice daily? Do you get regular HbA1c tests done? Look forward to hearing your experiences.

Hello, and welcome! You would have much better control if you used basal/bolus control. That would require two separate kinds of insulin. One is a fast acting insulin used before each meal, and the other would be used to control your blood sugar when not eating ad while you are sleeping. I have been type 1 for 65 years and I am very healthy. With good control you can have a long, healthy life.

There are several type 1 diabetics here, so ask all the questions you want.

Thank you for the advice but when I ask my doctor s, take the fast-acting insulin he replied that it is not necessary.How to convince him.
