I was diagnosed last year with Type 1 when I was 25 years old. 140lbs at the diagnosis and within a month jumped to 180 when I started taking insulin. I have quickly learned a lot about Diabetes, but it is extremely complicated! Some weird things I can't figure out.
-Popcorn _ When ever I go to the movies and get popcorn, I take the appropriate amount of insulin/carbs but never ever get it right. Same thing with tortilla chips. Anybody else have this issue? I asked my endo and a CDE/Dietician and they just looked at me like I was crazy.
Also, does anybody have an Endo that has Type 1 Diabetes themselves? I would absolutely love to hear that this exists. I am in Nashville TN and I have asked the JDRF here if they knew any in town but they didn't know of anyone.
