Hi I'm new to this forum but have been type I diabetic for 27 years. I am 62. I'm just starting to panic that I may die suddenly from a heart attack. I have no complications so far! I know of 3 people who have done this. I know one was a smoker, 1 was not managing their diabetes very well don't know about the other. I was speaking to someone who did not know I was diabetic and their comment was 'that's what happens to diabetics'! I do try and keep my blood sugars under control. Last HbA1c 54. I'm not over weight, exercise regularly, my blood pressure is OK and do not smoke. I did the DAFNE course a couple of years ago so match my insulin to my carbs. Last night though I was 13 .5 on going to bed so took a unit of insulin (I am quite sensitive to insulin and take small doses) at 4am I was still 13 so injected 1 unit more then woke at 7.30 my blood sugar was still 10? I had been in normal range all of yesterday. I take lanctus as my long acting insulin and Humalog as my fast acting. This worries me. I only see the practice nurse at my GP one a year. who thinks I'm doing fine.
