I'm Amy. I've just joined. =D I'm 20 years old and I'm a double diabetic (both types) on an insulin pump. I was diagnosed in 2008. I've had two strokes back in 2009. They were caused by a PFO. (hole in the heart)
I've had some pretty terrible experiences with my diabetes. I've been in and out of DKA several times now. I'm currently on Apidra and Metformin. I heard that you're NOT supposed to mix insulin and Metformin together. I'm wondering if this true? Ever since I started it I haven't been able to lose any weight whatsoever. I'm not gaining, I'm staying exactly the same. It's brought my blood sugar down a little but it's a huge disappointment about the weight thing. I'm wondering if this was a mistake.
Anyways! Just wanted to introduce myself, I guess. I'm hoping to find support from this community, so feel free to add me. =D
