    Hi everyone it is coming up to a year now that I have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Well what can I say it is horrible living with it and I have become a lot depressed and not wanting to go out and it’s literally turned my life upside down. To having a job and going out and enjoying life I feel like I have in prisoned myself within my 4 walls of my bedroom. I just keep eating and got results from my diabetes specialist regarding my high cholesterol results which is more damning as I keep eating all the time and putting more weight. I was taken to the hospital with pancreas disease, blood infection, kidney blood clot and sepsis. I am currently on novarapid and toujeo insulin and also blood thinners and anti-depressants. Please can someone help me with what to eat to keep my weight down or any support for people who have type 1. Thank you and I hope everyone is well.
