I have had type 1 since April 2010, and I just switched from pens (Lantus and Novolog) to the t:slim. I love being on a pump. Anyways, the last A1c was 6.5 and I am trying to make my busy schedule as a grad student work out. So far so good. I walk to and from school every day and pre-make all my lunches so that I grab and go. Snacks include greek yogurt and carrots, broccoli and cucumber with hummus. I take 8000 units of Vitamin D daily and a calcium supplement since I am not a big milk drinker. I need to lose some weight, and I am hoping with a careful diet (aided by the MyFitnessPal app) and the pump I will be able to shed a few. I have already lost four by just tracking what I eat.
I would love to make some friends around my age. I don't know a single type 1 (or type 2 for that matter) at the school I am at, so times can get a little lonely.
Hope you all have a great three day weekend!!
