Hi niccolette,

perhaps you should speak to a registered diabetic dietician. Or maybe u need more insulin. I myself am type 2 so i don't really know what a type 1 diet needs. Excersise is always good though at keeping blood sugar low

Hi niccolette,

What are you doing now to manage it? What, specifically, would you like to improve or manage better?

I am a "brittle" Type1 Diabetic, too, so I understand what you mean by small changes throwing everything for a loop. I found the best thing to start with for managing anything is...a log book. Write down all your glucose readings, your insulin injections, EXACTLY (weigh it if you have to) everything you eat/drink, exercise, and notes. You will need this information in order to see patterns of where you may need attention. What's not measured is not managed.

Let me know where you're looking to improve.
