Let’s talk complications of short-term memory loss/executive functioning and long term type 1. I think I’m experiencing this and have started doing research on the co-morbidity of ADHD and type 1.
The consensus is that poorer treatment outcomes as a child can lead to adult-onset adhd or short circuiting in memory and executive functioning.
Something I’ve experienced frequently lately is not completing diabetes tasks. Like the calibration alarm will sound. I’ll go test, but fail to do the button pushing to get my pump to accept the test fast enough. Or remember that I should take insulin and then immediately forget and not do it 10 minutes before the meal, but after it ends.
Also my sensitivity to conflict and my ability to and appropriately respond to criticism is lacking more than it ever has before.
I’ve mentioned this to my endocrinologist and they brush it off. And of course a counselor and GP can treat from the mental health side, but they don’t want to try to understand the connection either.
Anyone experienced this or had a good experience in getting a wholistic assessment of both? I’m at a loss, but it’s making good management of diabetes harder…
