I was diagnosed with T1 diabetes at the age of 13, its been 5 years and about 7 months.
For the first 3 years I had perfect A1C levels. They ran around 4.5-5s. But then I started losing control. My levels started to elevate and kept going up no matter what. This past year they have reached 13+. Recently I have started to control my diabetes instead of letting it control me. Today I had a check and my level was 10.1. I know thats a really bad level but it actually dropped 1.4 points in two months. My doctors have worked with me on diets and exercise habits but I recently graduated high school and now I have stopped exercising and don’t eat as healthy.
I need some help. My boyfriend is a very supportive man and he does what he can to help without controlling me and it does impact alot for me BUT I need to find a way to get my levels down. If someone could please offer tips or even recommend a way to get better control of myself I would appreciate it.
I’m worried that I am going to lose control again. I want to get healthier but beingon my own with the majority of my family about three hours away doesn’t help. I have tried getting a support group together at my clinic but all my efforts were lost causes. I have just myself, my doctors, and my boyfriend for support and it is getting harder.
PLEASE if you have any suggestions i would appreciate them.
