So much tech to help control a day in the life of a Type 1 Diabetic
We have come a long way with technology ..so lucky to be a diabetic in this era and even more advancements to come ….
It happened to me yesterday , I changed my insulin pod and the little cannula mustn’t have been in correctly and I noticed my sugar rising but no matter how much insulin I corrected the reading with it still kept moving up 😳 So I changed my pod and sure enough I was correct because everything came back down to normal .
The moral of the story is never give up there is always a reason 👯♂️
Thanks to @type1diabetesmemes for the great memes 👏
Had a fun day .. Loving Yoga and jumping on a mini trampoline , never thought I would find all this energy just living on juice !!! The session on learning how to juice was fab , I can’t wait to get home and try it , my sugar readings have never been this good in 28 years !!! I really don’t want to go home .
I won’t make promises I can’t keep but I’m certainly going to try to follow a plant based diet on my return just hope my family will agree too 😳🤪…
Sitting on a plane, gives me time to reflect on how I want to proceed with my blog !! I stopped writing my blog as I had a recent issue with my eyes…A complication of diabetes, ‘Diabetic Maculopathy ‘. which I am now having injections for .. in my eyes !!
My first reaction was to say why me ! Then I decided to turn it round and be positive..I opened up an Instagram account to fill with inspirational sayings and photographs that made me happy..I called it ‘ @alternativediabetic ‘ . Hopefully helping others going through similar situations in life.
I want to live my life to the full as you don’t know whats round the corner, also travel more ..hence my blog stopped for a while ! ..Now after another short break I’m ready to carry on bringing my story up to date …
I made an appointment to revisit my diabetic specialist, he didn’t really believe in alternative therapies so when I mentioned I believed I had a thyroid problem he laughed and said I needed to come to terms with my diabetes.
As I was a private patient I insisted on some blood tests to see if the iridologist was correct, my specialist agreed to do them but said he would eat his hat if I had a thyroid problem !!!
That evening the specialist called me at my home to say he was eating his hat as he spoke to me … I had a severe under active thyroid ‘myxoedema’ and should start Thyroxine therapy that evening and to come to the hospital to collect my prescription!!
I started on a high dose 150 micrograms straight away …
