I'm sure you will get through this. Anyone who can deal with what we deal with can handle anything. I never thought I would be injecting my self 3-5 times a day or pricking my finger to many times to count. Now I do everything as if it were second nature. I was diagnosed at the ripe old age of 33, almost 2 years ago.

Good luck!!!

My A1c was 6.4, but the lowest bg reading I remember having was in the 120's, but that was LOW for what I was averaging. I was averaging in the upper 100's, lower 200's. My FASTING would be between 160 and 230 and I had no idea why. And it happened all of a sudden. Everything was fine until March and now everything's all screwed up. But whatever. My dh has MS and he's teaching how to take things one day at a time. I'm working on it. *shrug*

Thanks Honey!

I am going to the dr. in a few weeks. I plan on discussing this with him. Hopefully I will have a breakthrough by then. I just had my blood drawn, so I guess I will have to do it again for the thyroid b/c I don't think he checked it this time. I am seriously considering going on the pump too which should create some mess for the whole weight thing too.

TAL - I completely understand what how you are feeling. I was told that as a type 1 diabetic I made antibodies to my own pancrease and destroyed it. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, meaning I am making antibodies to my own thyroid as well. I felt like, what the hell ELSE is my body going to decide to destroy, and what if it's something I can't live without????? ARG

On the flip side - your baby is super cute! And congrats on getting through a pregnancy so well. Be glad that your diabetes hasn't affected that area of your life.

SUPER - sorry about the gasto diagnosis. That sucks!!

JB - yes thyroid issues will make weight loss difficult. Have your Dr. test your thyroid function. Diabetics have a much higher incidence of thyroid disease.

what does this all mean? Does this effect weight lose? What was your A1C and your BS? I am having a really hard time losing weight. I can't seem to loose any thing. No matter what I do.

Congratulations on your cute baby and healthy pregnancy. I have that stupid thyroid problem and a bunch of others. It isn't fair that we have so many different problems arise from having stupid diabetes.
I feel like a whiny baby today, but I get so tired of feeling sick and tired. emoticon

Thanks! He'll be 9 months tomorrow; and my huband and I may be slowly falling apart, but we made an AWESOMELY cute kid! And even better, he arrived, on time, at an appropirate weight, and without any complications. Woot! lol

Me too!
But mine isn't my thyroid, I guess that's working fine, but at my doctor's appt last week my doctor decided I probably have gastroparesis (nerve-damage to your stomach/guts) which makes digestion less predictable which makes blood sugar harder to control which makes it worse. I think its a dirty trick, and I'm most annoyed at having to take MORE drugs on daily basis and I'm acting quite immature about the whole thing. Its totally not just you.

I guess the flip side is if we figure out which of other parts are dysfunctional, we can start to treat them and hopefully it makes the original problem of dead pancreas easier to control. UGH.
How many things can they pile on one person? I don't WANT any more problems, any more drugs, any more reasons to feel like an auto-immune disaster. I only have 2 shoes, and I swear the second dropped about 10 times by now.
You might be a whiny baby, but so am I! emoticon

PS Cute kid (yours, not the emoticon)!

Okay, so I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three years ago and the age of 28... yes, I know, rather old for it huh? Well, I guess it was bound to happen since I have a well-established family history of it, but I really thought I had dodged that bullet by then... Anyway, I was (slowly) getting used to things and moving forward. So, at my endo. appointment last week my A1c didn't match up to the blood sugars I was experiencing so my doc did blook work and lo! My thyroid isn't producing like it should. Sure, it's not that big a deal R.E.A.L.L.Y., but it's like a slap in the face. I'm having a hard time adjusting to this new 'thing' and I was just wondering if anybody else ever felt that way? Like... you're waiting for another shoe to drop? Not the OTHER shoe, 'cause it really seems like there's more than just the two shoes in this case. Anyway, I'll go now, but just wanted to see if I'm being a whine-y baby and/or get a reality check. Thanks.
