    22 year old and needs some help

    1
    Hi my name is Moriah. I've been a type 1 since I was 12 years old. As of the past 2 years, my A1C levels have been 9-10. I've gotten out of the habit of checking my blood sugars, and I maybe eat 2 meals a day because I'm in nursing school. It's hard to workout and eat healthy when i'm either up late studying or going to clinicals during the week. I'm not sure how to get back into the swing of...

    my 24 yr old w/type 1

    Hi,My son has had T1 since he was 11. He is 24 now. He has not taken care of it since he's been around 17 and I no longer managed it. His A1c is usually around 11%. He doesn't even have an endo now. I've tried everything to get him to pay attention to it. I guess I'm just venting but it is so sad to me that he will most likely have major health issues in his 40's. His thoughts are that he is not...

    Now I know why those pesky numbers shoot up

    2
    I noticed that if I take more than 2 pain relievers my numbers shoot up. I did not take any last night and this morning the numbers were 5.0 which if 90 American. Started to feel woozy so I tested it again, it was 2.7 about 45 American.  That is low. Still feeling it.  I had two large pancakes, syrop and 2 cups of coffee too. I told the dr that, but she did not believe me.  Now I can actually...

    Hello my name is Michelle. I have a 14year old son that has had t1 diebates for almost 4 years now . I thought he was mentally ok with dealing with it until today. Today he told me it isn't fair and he shouldn't have to deal with this and why did it matter about checking and correcting his sugar because he wouldn't live to see 50 .  It breaks my heart to know that he feels this way. So my...

    Ok to I'm on a pump and the catheter came out when I was sleeping.  Now I have high blood sugar (333) and large ketones.

I am getting a cold also.I've had this disease for 42 year and I'm 47. I haven't had ketones in years...

    Worried About My Daughter

    2
    Hi! I'm a new user, and I see that this group may not be especially active lately, but I'll give it a shot. I am worried about my 24-year-old daughter. She was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 8, and as you all know, it's been hard - especially for her. She is now living far away, but she visited for about two months recently. While she was here, I began to suspect (with good reason) an eating...
