May 25, 2012 · Type 1 Diabetes and chronic depression in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Is there a support group in your community or online that you can communicate with other adults living with type 1 diabetes? Type 1 is an almost invisible disease that is so relentless. I think speaking with others going through the same thing is helpful. I have a child with type 1 diabetes. Check out tudiabetes online for others going through the same struggles. It could help. Hugs and I wish you the very best as you move forward.

May 25, 2012 · questions about diabetes type 1 in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I am not a medical professional, but we have type 1 diabetes in our family. In my experience I don’t think there is a way to have that high of blood sugar and it not be type 1 diabetes. There is no perfect stabilizing of blood sugar so many things affect it besides carbs – that would include exercise, stress, the weather, hormones, etc… The only way to try to manage it is to test often and know when to give insulin and when to eat a certain number of carbs to battle a low blood sugar. If he does have type 1, this is all very important. There is a specialized diabetes community called tudiabetes dot com for more responses than you seem to be receiving here. It’s very important your husband get accurate medical information on how to treat his insulin dependence! I wish you both well.
