Type 1 Diabetes - Home Treatment

Type 1 diabetes requires daily attention to diet, exercise, and insulin. You may have times when this job feels overwhelming, but getting into a daily routine can help. And taking good care of yourself will also help you feel better, have a better quality of life, and prevent or delay complications from diabetes. Carbohydrate is the one nutrient in your diet that most affects blood sugar levels. A registered dietitian can help you learn about what foods contain carbohydrate and how to manage it in your diet. You need to take injections every day, because your pancreas no longer produces insulin. To learn more, see Medications. Your doctor will want you to test your blood sugar level several times a day. It's also important to know how to recognize and treat high or low blood sugar quickly. Try to do moderate activity at least 2½ hours a week.1 One way to do this is to be active 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week. Exercise safely. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after you are active. This is very important when it's hot out and when you do intense exercise.

    How do I get this beast off my back. I can't live like this. I can't deal with this. I can't even control it. My A1C just keeps going up and up no matter how much I try to keep tight control or exercise or starve myself. Not even trying to match insulin does any good. No one will tell me how to get rid of this. I just want my freedom back.

    You can't get rid of diabetes, but you can take control. Try going onto low carb. Read Richard Bernstein and follow his "doctrine of small numbers". Low carb andlow insulin doses lead to fewer fluctuations in BG and feeling better. If you let it control you, you will not win and that's unthinkable. Read this forum ; ask for help as often as you feel the need and it will be there for you
