Hi everyone! My name is Michelle and I was was diagnosed with T1DM 30+ years ago. I have been through a lot but have also learned a lot. My first wake up call was when I suffered with neuropathy (edited, not nephrology) in my teens. The pain was unbearable so I began to take care of myself. I haven’t seen an A1c of 7 since then…go figure! The price that I paid was the many episodes of hypo seizures. Later came the realization that I am sensitive to insulin, and yet sometimes resistance sets in.
After using MDIs for years, I finally decided to try the pump. I’m currently using an Omnipod and I am okay with it. Currently using Dexcom G5 and that has been extremely helpful. My last A1c was 5.4 but it’s a daily challenge as most of you know. I’m so thankful for this community and I’m hoping to share and learn some more on this forum!
