    Likes:
    Anything these days I'm fairly easy going
    Dislikes:
    Being type 1, my health and what really grates me are false people who make themselves out to be something when their not
    Body of a seventy year old, actually 51 years old, think like a teenager.
    Ive been type 1 for 40 years this November, on a pump 15 yrs this Dec 2015
    twenty six years of really bad control and i mean bad, Tried as hard as i could to control it but it just didn'tt work since being diagnosed at 12 Nov '75 after coming off steroids for kidney failure, on them from birth for 12 years what an extra gift that was.Then was involved in a hit and run accident and couldn't walk properly for a couple of yrs and still have serious problems now. Loads of laser treatment to both eyes and lots of diabetes related complications etc, then in in 1999 i was put on a pump and took to it like a duck to water and ever since the HbA1c levels have been between 5.5 and highest at 6.5 but the damage had already set in, had to give up driving 18 months ago and am now also registered as partially sighted. Ive had a lot of problems but i'm positive there are people less fortunate than me everywhere and i have a sick sense of humour which helps. Ive put on a fair bit of weight because of probably what i eat and because i am restricted to how much exercise i can do but i started a low carb diet after christmas and so far ive lost over a stone, im so pleased and its only from what ive read on this forum as its never been mentioned to me at my diabetes center or anything like that. I've avoided reading or reserching anything like that since my levels have been fine for years so this has helped me no end
