Hello Karen, welcome to our community! It seems you are taking your diabetes seriously now, that is good to hear. It is very common for diabetics to be in denial in the beginning. Some never accept the fact they are diabetic and they usually have terrible complications before they to have good control. I hope you are healthy and will have very good control in the years ahead. Ask all the questions you want.

I have been Type 1 for 64 years and I am very healthy.With good control we can have long, healthy lives.
