Interesting discussion. I was diagnosed in 1976, and all I can remember now about my diabetes management is all the bits that went wrong. I suppose there must have been bits that went right, or I probably wouldn't be here, but I can't seem to remember them. It's interesting. I suppose we were given so many warnings, and very little recognition given to doing things right, that it's likely that the bad bits will be remembered more than the bits that went right, but it does feel weird. Anyway, we survived, sadly quite a few didn't, and it's good that it's getting easier to manage, but there's a long way to go. I just think everyone has to deal with it in their own way, I've had absurd arguments about not eating fruit, and I have my doubts about very low carbs being a good thing over the longer term. But I have reduced my carb intake. a bit, since joining the forum, and getting the libre, or I think I have, though sometimes I calculate, and include the carbs eaten for hypos and think it's probably the same amount. But anyway...................it's an issue that will continue to be debated, for a log time, I suspect.
