Well it’s been almost three months since I was diagnosed with type one diabetes.
After two weeks of being diagnosed I started to struggle with lows (nothing serious) and ate a lot of food to keep my bg from going down. I spent a lot of time researching and discovered that I was probably going through the honeymoon phase. After a short visit to the endo it was confirmed… at that point I was already adjusting my fast acting. Now I’m down from 12 units to 2 units of basil & no fast acting.
It’s been really tough on me to make the insulin adjustments. I change the basil one to two units every couple of weeks.
It’s crazy how it changes…all of a sudden I have lower blood sugars and I need to wake up at least a couple of times in the night to check my bg and eat something. I basically have to adjust my routine. It makes me feel depressed and I feel like I have to pause life for a couple of days while I get the routine down.
Eventually I’ll probably be down to 1 unit and then hopefully things will stabilize for a couple of months and then I guess I have to adjust as my insulin requirments increase.
I’ll survive through this…I’m a tough cookie but it’s hard sometimes.
I’m curious if any other tudiabetes memebers have gone through this & what it was like for them.
