I am so pleased I have joined this forum. After 53 years of being t1 . I am so out of touch. I have gone through a very bad patch over the last 12 months. I have had enough. In December I went to my Gp for my annual check up . I was horrified as my Hba1c was 8.9. I told the nurse I need help. I am now under the care of a specialist nurse. I feel I have to look after myself as there is no one out there. Do you all go to the hospital for your care?
