Sometimes, no matter what you do, diabetes is a rollercoaster of highs and lows. . And sometimes the 🌟🌟 align and you get an amazing 24 hours like this! . This was not without a mega-amount of work and some badass swagging though! . Bug is a typical teenager who wants to eat ALL. THE. FOOD. all the time. Sometimes it is a disaster; these last 24 hours not so much! And he ate an obscene amount of carbs yesterday. 🙊 . We stopped at Sonic last night for a burger and drinks and I was out of the car when our food was delivered. By the time I got back Bug had drank 1/3 of his 'diet' Dr. Pepper before I could taste test it for him. Turns out it wasn't so diet afterall. 😤😤😤 (Meter test in the drink confirmed it at 568) . BUT- check it out- we totally saved it! (At the ⚡) He never even hit 180! I think it helped that he had already pre-bolused for his food and once we realized what had happened he covered a guestimated 25-30 carbs for the drink. Crisis averted, amazingly enough. I kept expecting him to gon⬆️⬆️but it never happened and his entire night was smooth sailing. . Also- I slept last night! 🎆🎆🎆 . #dexcom #t1dfamily #type1family #kidswitht1d #kidswithdiabetes #t1d #type1diabetes #typeonediabetes #t1dkid #type1preschooler #t1dkids #t1warrior #insulindependent #pumpinginsulin #type1diabeticlife #childrenwithdiabetes #bugandmrfox #autoimmunedisorder #invisibleillness #chronicillness #typeonekids #type1teenager #t1dteenager
Finally day 1 of the Tresiba insulin game! Tresiba plus fasting is the focus right now. I really wanna talk about how people think Basal insulin last 24 hours (said by the manufacturers) in tomorrow’s upload of the #diabetesdailyhustle !! Stay tuned my friends! #tresiba #insulindependent P.S. another person who is also starting a new journey with Tresiba is the one and only WHITNEY! @happypancreas watch her IG stories on her process with new Basal insulin!
I had just turned 13... I was diagnosed the first day of summer break after 7th grade. What about you?
Dex change 🎉 this sensor has been on for about 2-3 weeks (i forget 😂) but the numbers were a little off so I decided to change it. Happy Saturday! 😊
Happy Saturday 😩 I hate waking up with this number. Something happened throughout the night to my site because when I got up, it was hurting. And I felt the high sugar. It wasn’t even a new site, so that’s a plus. I was ready to change it anyway, so take that diabetes 🤪
Wednesday, April 25th, will mark my 23rd Anniversary of living with this awful disease. Today was my Diabetic Eye Exam and I am THRILLED to say that I have no complications!! Here’s to kicking diabetes ass!! I make these glasses look good!! 😂 I will be sitting in a dark room for a while until my eyeballs adjust again... ____________________________________________________________ #OwnPersonalTestRat #SelfProclaimedNerd #NeverStopLearning #WhatDidYouLearnToday #InsulinJunkie #DiabetesIHateYou #Insulin #DiabetesSupport #DiabetesCommunity #InsulinDependent #InvisibleDisease #InsulinPump #Diabetes #DiabetesAwareness #DiabetesType1 #DiabetesSucks #DiabetesLife #T1D #T1Diabetes #T1DLooksLikeMe #KickingDiabetesAss #Medtronic #MedtronicDiabetes #JDRF #T1DYouDontSee
Keep on pushin’ 😎💉💪🏼 - #THISISWHATDIABETESLOOKSLIKE
My lil Type 1 requests this almost every morning for breakfast. Type 1 diabetes has been a huge adjustment for her and the family as a whole, but she's been handling it better than most. Sausage, egg and the only carbs are in the waffles 27grams. #carbcounter #type1diabetes #momlife #mommygoals #insulin #insulindependent #daughters #love #family
Food groups. Trying to push away cravings today with more protein and fat and a little bit of natural sweetness! #whole30 #wholefood #mealprep #foodie #paleo #diabetes #typeonediabetic #insulindependent #mustlovegarlic
Trying an Enlite on my leg for the first time 💕 It's my fourth sensor and even though it was a bleeder it's super accurate so far. To achieve the best possible #medtronicaccuracy I follow the steps from Leah's @the.insulin.type blog post on calibrations. Go check it out! If you're struggling with inaccurate Enlite sensors, it might be a calibration error. 😇 When removing my old sensor, the transmitter was sticky and dirty from the tape (I use the tape that comes with the sensors), and I had a really hard time cleaning it. Any pro tips?? 💕 Have a lovely, sunny weekend, diabuddies! Life's great! ☀🌻 #dontdot1dalone #diabetescommunity

Yep, it’s that time again. I fear this appointment more than any other appointment... 23 years and no complications yet.

Três principais coisas sobre o diabetes que você tem que ter em mente para um bom controle: 1 - Glicose: Estabeleça uma faixa alvo de glicose com seu médico, bem como seus valores de hipo e hiperglicemia. Verifique sua glicose do sangue com frequência. Se você está tendo um hiper, use uma insulina de açaõ rápida ou ultra rápida para corrigi-la. Se você está em uma hipoglicemia, tenha um doce! 2 - Carboidratos: Você vai comer? Tente contar quantos carboidratos você está ingerindo. Isso ajuda você a saber o número correto de unidades de insulina que você precisa. Antes de uma refeição principal, verifique sua glicose. Às vezes você precisa injetar uma bolus combinada com uma correção de hiperglicemia. Tente misturar carboidratos com algumas fibras para que a absorção de carboidratos seja mais lenta, evitando picos. 3 - Insulina: Defina com seu médico quanta insulina você precisa para corrigir hipers, e para cada porção de carboidratos de suas refeições. Por exemplo, algumas pessoas usam uma unidade de insulina rápida para cada 15g de carboidratos ingeridos, mas isso varia de pessoa pra pessoa. Lembre-se: Um diabético não precisa ter uma dieta diferente das outras pessoas. Um diabético precisa ter uma dieta que todo mundo também deveria ter, mas não tem! #sugarfree #sugarfreediabetes #sugarfreecare #diabetes #tipo1 #t1 #diabetestipo1 #typeonestrong #insulin #insulindependent #dm #diabeteslife #diabeteslifestyle #diabetessupport #hipoglicemia #hiperglicemia #hiper #hipo #carbs #lowcarb #carboidratos #glicose #diet #dieta #zeroacucar
The main three thing about diabetes you have to have in mind while keeping it cool: 1 - Glucose: Establish a target range of glucose with your doctor, as well your hypo and hyper numbers. Check your blood glucose. If you’re having a hyper, you should use insulin to correct it. If you’re in a hypo, have a candy! 2 - Carbohydrates: Your’re gonna eat? Try counting how much of carbs your’re having. It helps you to know the right number of units of insulin you need. Before a main meal, check your glucose. Sometimes you need to inject a bolus combined with a hyperglycemia correction. Try mixing carbs with some fiber so that the absorption of carbs will be prolonged avoiding picks. 3 - Insulin: Define with your doctor how much insulin you need for correcting hypers, and for each portion of carbs of your meals. For example, some people use a unit of rapid insulin for each 15g of carbs but it varies for each person. REMEMBER: A diabetic shouldn’t have a diet different from everybody else. A diabetic should have a diet that everybody else should have but doesn’t. #sugarfree #sugarfreediabetes #sugarfreecare #diabetes #type1 #t1 #t1 #diabetestype1 #typeonediabetic #typeonestrong #insulin #insulinpump #insulindependent #dm #diabeteslife #diabeteslifestyle #diabetessupport #hypoglycemia #hyperglycemia #hyper #hypo #carbs #lowcarb #carbohydrates #glucose #diet
It’s been an interesting week 😅
My sensor decided to give up on me yesterday. Explains the quick ups and downs. Couldn't get it all on a graph so here are my bgs off the one drop app. Top numbers are a 14 day average. Had a lot of lows yesterday. Today I woke up in range and decided to give Automode the morning and afternoon. Manual mode will be for when I sleep for now. Nailing down one piece at a time. Also the weekends are my less active days so I will need to work on two different patterns. Tdd was 55units vs Auto modes 45 units. Basal/bolus was 50/50 yesterday too. #t1d #type1 #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #type1diabeteslookslikeme #diabetes #diabetesmanagement #diabetusmellitus #insulindependent #insulinjunkie #insulinpump #onedrop #cgm #basalrate
Сбегала очень уютный и совершенно плоский марафон в Туринской Слободе под Тюменью, как тренировку. Бежала с рюкзаком 4кг, на полном самообеспечении. До старта 100 сала, 100 квашеной капусты. На дистанции 2,5 литра изотоника и все. С кето бегать проще - факт! Мой любимый болельщик с этого старта: пацан лет 3, украшенный ветрянкой. Ел яблоко, на другой круг мыл окно котом) видела косулю, перебегающую дорогу. Круто не забыть воткнуть линзы на забег все-таки. Дальше до #eltonultratrail только по 30 бегать. До старта 35 дней, не то чтобы я считаю, конечно 😂 . . #УльтраЖир #МойЖирныйТриатлон #TriathlonWithoutCarbs #FattyTriathlon #triathlon #diabetes #changingDiabetes #ketodiet #lchf #lowCarbHighFat #ketogenic #ketoTriathlon #спорт #sport #пп #ekb #motivation #triathlonbabes #swimbikerun #триатлон #марафон #marathon #running #диабет #спортсдиабетом #insulinDependent #running #diabetesWarrior #diabetesStrong
Last time I took off my transmitter to reuse the same sensor, I put it on as a “New Sensor.” This time, I actually noticed it said “Reconnect Old Sensor.” I chose that one to see what it does. They still have the same 2 hour warm up. I was thinking there would be a reason they have two options. Anyone know? ____________________________________________________________ #OwnPersonalTestRat #SelfProclaimedNerd #NeverStopLearning #WhatDidYouLearnToday #InsulinJunkie #DiabetesIHateYou #Insulin #DiabetesSupport #DiabetesCommunity #InsulinDependent #InvisibleDisease #InsulinPump #Diabetes #DiabetesAwareness #DiabetesType1 #DiabetesSucks #DiabetesLife #T1D #T1Diabetes #T1DLooksLikeMe #KickingDiabetesAss #Medtronic #MedtronicDiabetes #JDRF #T1DYouDontSee
This granola came in my @thevegankind box a few weeks ago, but I didn’t try it for ages because the flavour sounded odd to me... but can confirm it was delicious, but especially paired with my fav non-dairy milk 😍😍 I just need to track down some more of this granola now! 💚🌱💚 . . #vegan #veganuk #veganfood #breakfast #veganbreakfast #granola #primroseskitchen #orangeandcashewgranola #oatly #oatlybarista #dairyfree #dairyisscary #notyourmumnotyourmilk #govegan #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #lowcarb #type1diabetic #insulindependent #kitchenaidmixer #whatveganseat #thevegankind #veganlife
☀️ Check out my not so perfect poppy cheesecake...sadly it fell apart while I tried to lift to a plate. Shouldn't have just moved my hand to do that. The best things about that cake is that one slice is less than half a BE (1 BE= 12g of carbs) which means that I don't even need to inject any insulin if I'm just having one slice for tea. ☀️ tadaaah, mein gesunder Mohnkäsekuchen! Ein Stück hat weniger als eine halbe BE. Dann kann man gerne auch Mal mehr essen oder auch Mal auf Insulin verzichten, wenn man nur ein Stück isst. Habt ein schönes Wochenende und geniesst das Wetter!
So much for knowing how my blood sugars fared overnight 🤷‍♀️ Sigh... 😩 It was my last night with this sensor. Apparently, I never heard the alarms... I wish the sensor would store enough information to upload once the sensor is “found” again. ____________________________________________________________ #OwnPersonalTestRat #SelfProclaimedNerd #NeverStopLearning #WhatDidYouLearnToday #InsulinJunkie #DiabetesIHateYou #Insulin #DiabetesSupport #DiabetesCommunity #InsulinDependent #InvisibleDisease #InsulinPump #Diabetes #DiabetesAwareness #DiabetesType1 #DiabetesSucks #DiabetesLife #T1D #T1Diabetes #T1DLooksLikeMe #KickingDiabetesAss #Medtronic #MedtronicDiabetes #JDRF #T1DYouDontSee #T1Yinzers
When you miss your holidays so have to go have brekkie at your local vegan cafe 🙌🏻🥑
Wake up and be proactive.

Quick insulin shot and I will eat this all🤤
1 day. • Just enjoy it. Events like this are a rarity. I’m honoured to be a part of the London Marathon and to be a part of something this amazing. There’s no other event like it. • Sure I’m nervous...but bring it on. 🏃🏻‍♂️
That glamorous diabetic life!💁😂 A low of 3.1 on the walk resulted in a parking lot glucose check and eating glucose tablets at the playground. I don't post about my diabetes daily, but it exists every moment of every day and night and this is just part of how it goes. ⬆⬇
Increasing Tresiba 1u at a time 💁 When I was on Lantus I was taking 15u a day. From everything I saw I figured I would have to cut my Tresiba dose in half. WRONG. lol I do okay on a dose of Tresiba until suddenly, it stops doing its job. I'll battle post mealtime highs no matter how I eat, and also higher fasting numbers (any time of day). Maybe I already said all of this on this platform 😂 it's so hard to keep up when you're a part of t1d forums and such! Anyway; being a t1d for 6 yrs now, maybe I've just hit the point of needing more basal in my life 🙃 I'm not sure. Anyone else have a certain time after diagnosis that they had to significantly increase their basal? How much basal are you on? I know my body is no one else's, I'm just curious! 😁 I don't feel like I'm insulin resistant though; this porblem only crept up when I started Tresiba 3 months ago.

After too many not so healthy food choices (Easter, Bday’s, Hawaii and a stressful month of layoff talk at work), it’s time to get back on the horse! This lettuce wrapped bacon burger with sautéed mushrooms, avocado, pickles, purple onions and crispy jalapeños should do the trick! #whole30 #wholefood #mealprep #foodie #paleo #diabetes #typeonediabetic #insulindependent #mustlovegarlic
I, Nicole, feel lucky to have always been quite confident. At a young age, my parents taught me about self-love, and I never really felt insecure. Today, when I wear my pump, I wear it with pride, regardless if others can see it. At the gym, I obviously wear tighter clothing, and usually my pump peeks out at some point, whether it’s on my hip, stomach, or calf. This past week I was at the gym. A lady pointed at my leg and asks, “What’s wrong with your leg?” I nicely said, “Nothing. I’m type 1 diabetic and it is my insulin pump. It’s how I receive insulin.” I didn’t think too much about this exchange until about 5 minutes later. What’s wrong? What’s wrong with you lady? I began thinking about younger people, or newly diagnosed T1Ders, how would they feel if asked what’s wrong. I understand it’s not malicious, but reminds me of how clueless this world is about this disease which consumes so many of us every single day. My 2 cents for the day! Keep killing it T1Ders. Keep on keeping on. #diabetes #type1diabetes
💕 Cultivate kindness ✨ ⠀ ⠀ Being kind is not always easy - but it is important to be kind not only to others, but to yourself as well. ⠀ ⠀ With Type 1 Diabetes it can be really hard to be nice to ourselves. In a disease where we are trying to be our body’s pancreas, there are a lot of ups and downs. We blame ourselves for little mistakes, wonder why we can’t be better, why we can’t get our A1C down. We beat ourselves up for not having a straight line on our CGMs, we feel guilty when we miss things even though we really are sick. Parents who are the caregivers to their Type 1 kids is no different - they wonder if they did something to cause this disease, they cry over high or low BGs and they lose sleep overnight while just trying to keep their kid alive. ⠀ ⠀ Remember to take some time to be nice to yourself. We don’t have to be perfect all the time, this disease is just too unpredictable and we can’t beat ourselves up for tiny mistakes. We’re just doing the best we can and that is what matters. ⠀ ⠀ Take a moment this weekend to be kind to yourself, remind yourself you’re doing a great job, and that you’re a total badass. 💪🏼📟💉📈📉🌟 #livebeyond #type1diabetes ⠀ ⠀
GUYSSSS i posted about this on my story sometime in the past couple of months...and...I finally did it!! Liking it so far!! • the insertion was tricky; had to get my roommate to take off the safety lock and then the plunger. • i had a compression low last night but i think most of us get those if its on our arms as well. • so far its been pretty accurate but its been calibrated for less than 12 hours so we shall see how it goes 😍
