I was diagnosed at age 25 after going into DKA and spending three days in the ICU. I am now 26 and am still having trouble controlling my blood sugar. Some days, it will be super high and others, it will get low. Every time it goes low, I seem to over do it with sugar and make it go extremely high. My biggest fear is getting too low and consequently, dying from it.
I also am very active and workout 6 days a week. It is also a struggle controlling my blood sugar with being active. The hardest part for me with being a T1 is keeping my blood sugar at a consistent level, so I can get the most out of my workouts. I have been battling this for the past year and would love any advice for better controlling my blood sugar and living a healthy lifestyle. I don’t know very many people that are T1’s and would love to talk to people who know what I am going through.
