This morning I woke up with 7.2mmo/l and corrected this. I was happy with this number in general but because my target is 6 I chose to correct this. My correction dose was 0.65 units. This is another reason to love an insulin pump. The minuscule amounts you can bolus means, in theory, a better control than on Multiple Daily Injections. On injections I wouldn't correct until I went over 10mmol/l. I think it's important to stop and be thankful for the little things sometimes. Even if by little, I mean a 0.65 unit bolus. Also. Got the 11 years, no complications from my endo recently. Very refreshing to hear that.
For a long time I tried to hide my Diabetes, from friends, colleagues, guys I was seeing. Most of all, I tried to hide it from myself. But life doesn't work like that! I'm attempting to look after myself better and reach out to the Diabetic Online Community by writing about my experiences with Diabetes.
The short story is.. I'm 26 years old, diagnosed in 2003 with Type 1 Diabetes. I'm from New Zealand and as of the 14th of October 2013, I am using an Animas Vibe to manage my diabetes. Big changes! For now, this blog is a place for all my diabetic related thoughts. Please leave a comment if you're reading this, or flick me an email on lifewithinjections @ gmail.com. Would love to hear from others! :)
