Hello everyone, it’s been a little while! Hope all are well.
I have 2 questions. I was wondering if there was any new research on people diagnosed in their 30’s (best treatments, life expectancy, etc). Also, insulin advise.
To start I was diagnosed at 31 (April 2017) with an A1c of 8.6. My meds are 500mg met 4x’s daily, and I was on insulin (48u) with a daily avg bg of 140-270. I finally got over myself and started taking care of myself about 7 months ago. Also, I finally started the Keto diet and my A1c went down to 5.7, my avg bg is 90-115 (When I jump off the diet, I jump to about 100-140 but haven’t tested higher). Additionally, I pulled my self off the insulin b/c it was dropping my bg low 68.
That’s the short version of my story, but I was wondering what your thoughts were about me going off insulin? should I have stayed on (i can go on it again)? I ask about this b/c I very recently started freaking out about dying, and I want to do everything I can to live as long as I can. Also, I don’t have anyone I can relate/ talk to about this without sounding like I’m being negative or mellow dramatic.
Thank you in advance for your knowledge, and wisdom!
