I am a 39 year-old Norwegian who has been type 1 since I was 22 years old.
When I finally got diagnosed I had lost a lot of pounds.
I liked the new skinny me, and I very quickly learned that I could control my weight by injecting less insulin. I developed a kind of eating disorder that I still, after so many years struggle with.
I have exellent health, live a very active life and my diabetes doesn't stop me from doing anything. Still I have way too high bs at all times and I eat wrong kind of food. I am so afraid of gaining weight that I still use the less insulin-method.
Is there anyone else out there struggling with similar challenges?
Anyone who can give me some good advise on how to move forward, how to become a good diabetic without gaining weight?
I know I have to work it out, because it will only be a matter of time before my health won't be so good anymore.
It's time to take action!
Anyone?

Thank you for links and advise.
I really found the articles interesting.
Where I come from we don't have this kind of program where endorcinologist, thearpeut and dietist are involved all together.
Either you see your doctor, or you can get in at the hospital to see an endor. or one can try for oneself to find a therapeut specialised in eating disorders, there are no such person as a specialist therapeut in diabulimia. Irritating :-(
Anyway, I found the links enriching, thanks!
It's all about me, and I know that I can fix this. I will!

I will seek help!
I know that I have to do so, I realise that I cannot do this on my own and I realise that I have been ignoring my diabetes for way too long,
The only two periods of time that I have been really good have been during my two pregnancies. My Hba1c was under 6 then. Before and after it has been over 10.
When I say that my health is really good I mean that I never catch a flu, a cold or a fever. I live a very active life and don't experience that my diabetes has ever put a brake on whatever I wanted to do.
Still, I know the results my diabetes tests, and I know that I don't take as much insulin as I should and I know that I eat way too many carbs each day. I know where this can end, and that's why I am now taking action. One step at a time.
This is also the reason why I joined this "club"; to get some good advise, to talk to someone with the same diagnosis.
I am greatfull for all feedback. I need it. Thanks :)
