Being new to diabetic connect, I wanted to introduce myself and say hello to everyone. For the past few years I have been dealing with health issues that I did not think would be related to having diabetes. Just like many people, I had a fear of doctors & hospitals. I realized something was wrong when I never felt full after eating and craved water more than what would be normal.
During the winter, I rapidly lost 22 lbs. and was constantly tired. Thankfully I chose to conquer my fears last month, and was scheduled a physical exam & blood work with a great doctor. On 5/22/08 during a callback exam, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
During this short time since diagnosis, I am trying to take a proactive approach to my health, by changing my diet & learning all that I can. Right now my doctor has me on Novolog & Lantus and so far so good, but I still have a way to go yet on gaining control over my glucose.
It's nice to meet everyone!
