Like "After 54 years type 1 diabetic, I am still finding it hard to deal with this disease but I have and I am still all intact. It will never be easy but many people are able to manage their diabetes and still have a real good full life. As in the previous post, and with all things, everything in moderation is an important thing to add as your motto. As for a low carb snack I like cream cheese on celery as there are almost no carbs in that, choose low fat cream cheese if you are weight conscious. Remember that the better you manage your condition the fewer diabetic complications you will experience in later life. Good luck, YOU can win!"
