hi everyone, I was diagnosed with type 1 a couple of weeks ago. I’m over the initial shock but I seem to be obsessing a lot over numbers and things. I was told to only test before meals, and a max 4 times a day. I have been worried about spikes in my sugars though as they can be up to 15 now. Am I right to be concerned about these and want to know about the numbers post meals? Is it unrealistic to want my numbers to be right most of the time? I’m also quite anxious about hypos. I’m struggling to sleep at night because of worrying about what my sugars will do while I sleep. I found it strange at first that when I wake up after fasting, they’re often higher than when I go to bed. I understand the reasons behind that now. I’ve also been having problems with blurred vision. That was one of the signs that led to my diagnosis but I read it would improve after being on insulin for a couple of weeks. It hasn’t. Does anyone have any personal experience of this? I have an eye screen next week which I’m terrified about. My dad has type 2 and he has to get regular injections in his eyes even though he eats really well and does his very best to control his diabetes. What should I expect to happen at this eye appointment? I have only been started on 10 units of humulin I twice daily for now. It doesn’t seem enough. I have a first full appointment with the diabetic nurse at the GP surgery next week so no doubt i’ll get that changed. What else will they do at this appointment? Also, isn’t it bloody annoying the comments you get from people? I’m no expert yet myself, but people seem to love to give you their advice and opinions, which all seem more suitable for type 2. Ugh! Does this get easier after a while? Thanks in advance.
