I joined this Forum last night and am hoping by engaging with other people who have diabetes this life-long battle of managing diabetes may become a bit easier. It has always been an uphill struggle, and I realise it needn't be. My main issue is getting what I call the tricky trio of insulin, diet and exercise right. I have the lows when I ramp up my excercise and the highs when I drop my insulin and my diet is a nightmare because a lot of my eating is driven by low blood sugar and not by a genuine hunger. So this finds me with a permanent tyre around my midriff which gets me down. Anyway, I will keep watching the Forum, and hopefully, by engaging with the experiences and insights of other Type 1 diabetics, I'll find it easier to manage this. Mainly, I am interested in people who have had diabetes as long as I have.
