Thank you so much for the warm welcomes. I am really excited to be a part of this site. To know there are other people like me and who want to talk to each other about it.
I've had Type I for 30yrs. I was 22 at the time and dating my now husband (27 yrs). We have two children (26 and 23).
Was diagnosed with Grave's disease (hyperthyroidism) four yrs ago, received radio active iodine and am now hypothyroid. My Endo said it was no big deal...WRONG. Having both diabetes and hypothyroidism is exhausting.
I've seen a lot of changes in diabetes care over the yrs. Still have my CPI Betatron II pump from 1985 and my first Glucometer!
I've always had large swings in my BS. Drs. have always told me it must be due to stress and to avoid it as much as possible...!!??!! (I thought it was due to type I diabetes!)
Thank you all so much again.
