I know a few type1 s who do not maintain their diets/intake.
I think it’s better to properly dose your bad diet than have a good diet with poor control.
Your daughter will learn it and get good at counting carbs and dosing and tech gets better every year.
When I was diagnosed we barely had finger stick testing. You couldn’t carry it around and it was hardly accurate.
I would take wild stabs at guessing how much insulin I needed
I had some lows and some DKA. But I got better and better at it.
Now I use a hybrid loop pump and cgm and I’m in good control. No telling what she will have 20 years from now.
I’m kind of glad I didn’t really know how dangerous diabetes was back then, I just figured it out, like we all have to do.
