Hi guys! I’m new here! But, I’ve had type 1 since I was 18 months old. (almost 19 years now), and I was diagnosed with Celiac when I was just 2 years old.
I’m hoping for some support and information! I was in the hospital for 4 days back in April with ketoacidosis. That’s the first time, since I was about 4 yrs. old. I guess the stress of college is catching up with me? Plus I was on NPH since I was diagnosed (37 units in the morning mixed with 7 units of R and then 5 R at supper and 13 N at bedtime.) Now I’m on Lantus (50 units in the AM) and 6 units of R at breakfast, 8R at lunch and supper. I really want to switch over to the pump. More specifically the One Touch PING!!! But I’m really concerned with the counting carbs since I have celiac. A lot of the bread mixes and such that we buy don’t have calorie or carb counts on them…just for the dry portion. Plus, I haven’t had to count carbs before while being on insulin. I guess that was a plus of NPH…Too bad my body built up a resistance to it.
So, I was wondering if anyone could ease my mind by letting me know how it is with counting carbs and being on the pump!
