Random Thought #t1dandfood #notfeelingwell I feel like I have an extremely significant neutral relationship with food. being type 1 and loving food is like a double negative. I snack on foods in my most opposite extreme moments. boredom and stressed are the most major opposites on my scale. happy and sad fall in between those, and then it's like a mix of hormones and I eat and snack with those as well. sometimes food is my positive fuel and energy and I keep my glucose level. other times food and I are like the double duo of destruction for my glucose. in the end, it hurts my either way wether I've been eating healthy, snacking healthy, my glucose either sky rockets or plummets. Does anyone else feel like this?
Hi this is my first post on Alikes. I joined because I am feeling a bit overwhelmed managing my type 1 diabetes lately and some of the gifts it has bestowed on me. Struggling with foot pain which has stopped me getting out walking in the beautiful countryside where I live for the past 9 months. Recently started continuous glucose monitoring and liking it but feeling more medicalised than ever by machines and gadgets that go beep. Trying to look on the bright side but struggling....need to loose weight but hampered due to foot pain. I suppose I am looking for some moral support through shared experiences
Does anyone with Type 1 diabetes suffer with pain and tingling in their hands fingers and arms if so what does it mean and can it be reversed
have finally been approved for a pump ! will be getting the tandem tslim which is supposed to communicate with my g6 sensor ! i wanna know things ! if any of u use them pls tell me nice things to look forward to !!

(question about blood sugars/type 1 diabetes, i need advice pls help!) people i live with (medically trained) have been asking about my health etc. we spoke about my physical health and how shaky i was etc and they asked if i've ever been tested for type 1 diabetes. it's weird they brought it up because a while ago my blood sugars kept going really low but they would bring themselves back up after eating someone with not much sugar or even sometimes without eating at all. i was wondering if anyone has any experience or advice with this? im booking a GP appointment tomorrow to try figure this out but i'd love if someone could help or give some advice? tysm!! xx
Hi new to this app and just looking for comfort and I’m open to some advice if anyone has any basically just got out of hospital and I’m just struggling keeping on top of my medication but I’ve recently started with a dexacom and I’m going to really try to take this into my own hands and not let it get to me
hello 👋🏽 I'm new here. wondering if there are any type one diabetics around to talk about current sugars and moods 😉
Hi there. I’m new to this. I’m 33 T1D and this year have had a handful of issues. I’m now dealing with a rapid decline in kidney function and have stage 4 kidney disease. Does anyone have any experience or in a similar situation? Feeling anxious and lonely with it.
I have my appointment tomorrow for my libre that I've been waiting ages for! All I want to know is will I get it tomorrow or will I have to wait until after Christmas 😭 do they tend to give it on the spot or like... Do I have to wait for my GP to sort it all out and everything??? 😬
hello! Newly diagnosed diabetic (July), looking for people to relate to and a support group. Diagnosed T1 but have to eat like a T2 or my numbers are all over 🙄
Hii ppl of Alike, If any you are type 1 diabetic then what is the most heathy way to treat highs/lows Im asking this question for my dad, he's struggling with loosing weight and he treats his highs/lows with soda, and I personally think that soda isn't the healthy-est option. I just want some recommendations if you can please!
I’m looking into getting the omni pod or the tslim. I have a really lean build and not sure which one is better as for as cannula and insertion goes. I like how the omnipod would be automatic, like how the dexcom g6 goes in, but I’m already familiar with the sites for tslim since it’s the same company that makes medtronic’s. but I hate that I have to physically pull the needle out, it doesn’t just come out. anyone have any thoughts?
What's your current A1C, and what do you target?
So I’m 22, and I’ve been diabetic since I was 12. So 10 years. I’ve never had a pump, or the opportunity for one. I finally have a freestyle libre that I’ve been using for about two years not. But I was wondering how it is to have a pump? What your A1C was when you got yours? And what kind you have/would recommend? All feedback is appreciated!
