I am curious if there are any other D Forums that are a good source of info. I am trying to get & learn all I can. Having a spike that scared me, I need to learn & change things to adapt & be ready for what can possibly happen. So now I need to go else where for fresh info.

Diabetic Daily is another excellent site—I found TONS of type 1.5 information on there, as that's what type I am..I am not a type 2, but I am also not a storybook type 1. I do know that hypoglycemia can cause what you said are "fits". Also, both types of diabetes can, too, without a doubt, because, when our blood sugars go too low, we shake and tremor…in my case, I will soar to 600, get signs of ketoacidosis , then my body will eventually get angry and drop me down into the 50s for a short while..once I drop that low, I shake and tremor…hope this all helps…ANNE

There are a few out there, but what is good for one person maynot be good for another. You just have to try them out.

Good luck with your new site:)

Checked out a few others too and like DC the best. Some have too many rude and sometimes angry people sniping at each other. Here the Types intermingle, have been at a few were hostility seems to be the norm. They had good info but the climate made me not want to linger. Matbe they have mellowed, but I read through older posts and it had been that way for as far back as I browsed. Also the same info was available here. Plus with Richard, Mays, James and many others who are wonderful sources and researchers, Dc has the edge on the others.

Like Karyn I have been to a few also, and I have not been satisfied with them like I have been here. Perhaps since I was on DC first, DC has spoiled me for them.

So true! I'll also add to kaiya - spikes are scary, but that's probably because you can see them now. Before you were diagnosed and testing, you probably had tons of them without even knowing. You'll get it figured out, and we'll help.

Your probably right, about the "seeing them now" part. I was told, but not sure how true it is, that Pre-D persons can have D fits, is this true, & what is it?

Thanks

Carol would probably know more about this, but I know I freaked when I found out what some foods spiked me to. Stressing over it even made it worse, which raised me even more. I really had to come to terms with the fact that as i got used to this condition, I'd be learning for a while. A 200-300 spike did get to me, but if I came down reasonably well, I chalked it up to self education - in one case an education not to eat 3 slices of deep-dish pizza in one sitting. I won't even scare you with what a stack of pancakes did.

I've never heard the expression, diabetic fits, Kaiya, but I would think it refers to one of two possible situations: 1. extremely high blood sugar can lead to coma if left untreated; 2. extremely low blood sugar can manifest as shakes and tremors.

Caroltoo: I was just told that pre-d's can have them, like you, I never heard that before either. I am used to the shakes & tremors, it comes from being hypoglycemic, but the coma thing I was not sure if that just effects the T1, T2 persons or all. So now I wonder if the lows are what they meant by fits, who knows…
Thanks

It's the hyperglycemia extreme end of the scale and usually referred to as diabetic coma. Anybody whose blood sugar goes up that high can have them. There are situational things like a really severe infection that can cause a spike without the person being diabetic.

I've been to a couple out there for research purposes - there aren't as many as you'd think. Ours is the only one I've found with the friend/connection link, or where you could post "facebook" style. Nearly all the topics raised are the same, but some seem to have a more clinical feel. I have yet to see one as large as ours, most had maybe 20,000 members. All seem to have the typical "flow" of regulars.

I've also found that adding info or posts to this site is the easiest. Other sites were more targeted to medical professionals or were so basic they were of no use for me. I like to see people who actually have to deal with it every day and some of the issues that come up. The people on here are very helpful when someone has questions and you won't have one that one of us hasn't seen before. For those of us who had it before good information was available, i for one, wouldn't want others to have to do the trial and error figure it out yourself stuff that I went through. You'll see some far out ideas sometimes, but not often. Most is proven, tested and known to work. Each simply has to apply it to their lifestyle and situation. Flip through several discussions if one doesn't interest you. I'm sure you'll see one that does.

Yes, I've noticed that too. Very few have diet info, and a lot of posts are just hand-offs. Here you can usually get a question answered in 24 hours (or quicker if you use the search box sometimes), others can get passed off for days if the right person isn't on-line.
