Hi everyone, I'm Cassie and I am a Type 1. I am new to this site, which I found this morning while looking for diabetes apps on my phone. I was diagnosed a little over 5 years ago and I just recently started to be more proactive in taking care of myself. In June, I began running and working out more, and I just recently ran my first 5k. I've also tried to make a habit of checking my levels more often and taking insulin after meals.
I had my three-month checkup with my doctor yesterday. My A1c is back up to 11.6 (oof, I know. :/) I am in the process of trying to get a pump, but the request is pending with my insurance. (Honestly, what is the point of insurance sometimes?!?!?) I didn't have to do labs yesterday because my doctor would like me to have a full month of good levels so we can see how my health is when my levels aren't completely out of control.
So that's a little about me. Hopefully this community will help me regain the motivation to stay accountable. (:
