Hey Regan, I've been T1 longer than you've been alive and I'm still learning. Best overall thing you can do is get in with a good endo, CDE, and dietitian. There are many treatments for this, it's not one size fits all. A good diabetes team will help you customize your treatment plan, eating habits, all that stuff. It's a lot to learn, but you can handle it.
