|“Because my brother was diabetic, I actually knew quite a bit when diagnosed. In some respects, I wish I had listened more when I was diagnosed - I thought I knew everything I needed. I didn't realise that being high for extended periods could be dangerous in the short-term - I thought it would only impact in a years’ time.” (Anonymous)
Dealing with type 1 diabetes is a very individual thing – there is not one treatment that suits every person. It’s important for you to know your diabetes. You also need to recognise the symptoms of something not being right. Learn to trust your instincts with your diabetes.
If you feel that your treatment is not working, go and speak to your doctor or CDE. There may be a different way of treating it.
