Living with Type 1 Diabetes

I haven’t been blogging much and I apologize. I have gotten caught up in school. I am really confused about why my pancreas is still functioning a year after being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I am still on insulin once a day at a dose of 6. Is my pancreas going to eventually fail? I had an appointment back with my endo a month or two ago and didn’t have my blood work done in time for the appointment, so I had to get it done and they said they would call. They never did call me. Any help with why my body hasn’t needed insulin more and if my pancreas is gonna fail?

My mom found this in our paper! Very interesting

It’s almost over this honeymoon phase. 143 before meal this morning. 7 points higher and I have to use insulin before meals.

Hope everyone is

doing well! I haven’t posted a lot on here this past week and I apologize. I will work hard to post more.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? feedback?

I love all of you guys! Hopefully we can become a closer support group and bond!

Glucerna vanilla warm is nasty!!!!!!!! My dietician recommended it for weight gain but it makes me want to vomit. Are the other flavors better?

Weight loss help tips.

I was reading these on Mayo Clinic.

Exercise:

  • Aim for about 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity(cleaning,gardening,mowing,shopping,)
  • or structured vigorous aerobic activity for 75 minutes. (running,walking,swimming,jogging,biking,)
  • Stretch after exercising it helps promote equal balance
  • But keep the stretching gentle. It should not hurt

Weight training:

  • Weight should be able to be lifted 12-15 times comfortably
  • Breathe out as you lift and breathe in as you lower it.
  • Avoid exercising the same muscles two days in a row.
  • Warm up 5-10 min. aerobic activity
  • Do not rush your workout.
