    In the search bar - top right of your screen -type in CDB* as a search term. Make sure to use the asterisk or the search function rejects the search term as 'too short'.

    You will find a good few posts on the subject of CBD oil.

    Welcome to the forums by the way.

    Apart from pain and maybe some neurological symptoms, I didn't think CBD had any properties that would stabilise BG....

    If you're on a pump then it is probably a good idea you do a full analysis of your doses....starting with the basal...

    Assuming you've followed all the usual steps to manage your BG, it might be worth checking whether you're sensitive to certain classes of food, or environmental factors.

    In my case it was histamines, similar to hay fever but present in food.

    Hi,

    I was diagnosed at 11 (now 27). Before starting on a pump my sugars were all over the place, but I’ve managed to control things now. My only advice is to avoid ‘sweeteners’ unless it’s natural like Stevia. The sweeteners increase your blood sugar level but in an unpredictable way and make the most of the dual wave bolus!

    I’m about to buy CBD oil in the hope it’ll help my joint pains.

    Good luck :)

    Hiya,
    I have tried very good, expensive 20% CBD oil and it had no effect on sugar levels and also for the nerve pain.
    Hope you're getting everything under control. All the best!

    I take the oil and it Definately lowers my sugar count and helps me have a better nights sleep.

    Hi Sharon just wondering have you tried CBd oil yet and how are you getting on. My daughter is 14 and type 1 and all the research seems to be concerned with type 2 only. Thanks

    Possibly if you did search cdb there would be none. Assume you are looking for CBD?
