    Hi,

    I have seen you post regarding you being on Lantus only for over a year and controlling your type 1 with diet and exercise only. I was diagnosed type 1 beginning this year and in similar situation. Doctor and Nurse says continue the what I am doing but it will come to point where I will need more insulin. I am just wondering are you still on Lantus only or you now need more insulin. Thanks

      Start in the greetings and introductions bit. What people will be looking for is stuff like what type you are, how long you've had it - thi s is mainly to stop people telling you stuff you already know. I had a newly dx'd T2 telling me this monththat low-carb was worth a try. So go on the Greetings bit and then click on "start a new thread" and type what you want.
