Welcome to the group Quilt... hello everyone. I know it may seem kind of odd, but I love seeing stories about people who have had Type1 for some years. I was just diagnosed at 39 -about 2 years ago, so I was in despair. It's encouragin when I read your stories. emoticon

When you start eating fewer carbs, you'll want to do some basal testing so you can avoid those lows.

Hi!

I am a type 1 diabetic, and I have been one for about 18 years. I was diagnosed at age 10, and my blood sugar was 1,378.

I've always had challenges when I want to lose weight, because I tend to get low blood sugar because I'm eating less carbs.

I am an insulin pump user and started in 2005. I do have a continuous glucose monitor, but I don't use it as frequently.

Looking forward to meeting some fellow Type 1's!
