    Type 1 Diabetic for 46 years. On Lantus and Humulog insulin. Battling to lose weight, especially around my stomach. Finding the highs and lows difficult to manage as I move towards a low carb, higher (good) fat and (good) protein diet. Exercise is beneficial but if I exercise hard then I get hit by lows. Right now, it all feels too darn hard, and I just don't want to think about it.
