I am a type one diabetic since the age of 9 months old. I am almost 32 now. I have a lot of digestive problems. Does anyone else have these issues? I really wanna get my A1C down from an 11% because I would like to have another baby. My daughter is 14. I cant seem to get my bloods down and I feel so hopeless sometimes. Help?

Could you be a bit more specific about your particular digestive problems? I could make a guess bit that would only be a WAG. (wild a$$ guess)

Are you on a pump ? And yes, I have those problems a lot, too! There's some things that your doctor can give you to help, but the only thing you can really do about it is eat as healthy as you can. And maybe play with your insulin dosage a little bit and increase it little by little and it should help get those A1Cs down. :)
I recently just had to mess with my basal rates because my blood sugar was getting super high and it didn't come down for months. I was afraid to because I never did it by myself before, and I was on the lowest setting of insulin I could get. But I went from getting 4 units a day to 6, which I guess is an average amount of change. Maybe start by going up one unit a day and see what happens!
