diabetic_support Am I the only one who feels like a cure is always "5 years" away. Longest 5 years ever. But one day it'll actually happen!! 6h
  •   wipeout1094 Is it bad that I don't want a cure? 3h
  •   tsuredraider I've been diabetic for 18 years and I've been hearing this since day one. 3h
  •   skymofly Too much money involved for there to ever be a cure. I think the cure is already possibly known and figured out, but think of all the businesses (Bayer, Medtronic, BD, Lily, etc) and endocrinologists that will lose their job if there's a cure for diabetes....Hate it, but it's all about the $ unfortunately. :( 3h
  •   lesleybrycefoto Exactly @skymofly you hit the nail on the head!! 3h
  •   s.binkhatem @skymofly no it's not about money believe me !! And yes I know the cure is known but they're waiting for the best results, it is actually taking forever but nobody wants to have any bad results !! 3h
  •   briansamy143 Totally agree with @skymofly 2h
  •   day_tripper__ I kept getting told there was an insulin nasal spray coming out in 5 years. This was nearly like 8 years ago lol. 35min

austin_fuerst So this was the Camp Sweeney 5k where all of the new counselor met and had no idea what they were getting into. Mr. @jacksonculp_ got a little music going, and so a dance circle formed, and naturally, this is what I did. That is insulin btw #diabeticprobs @camp_sweeney2014 1d

diabeticlifewith_emily This was definitely me last night. Went low so I drank some juice knowing that was all I needed but had a craving for the sherbet ice cream in the freezer so I ate a little bit of that and then ended up making a peanut butter sandwich.

type1fit I'm on the road traveling for work this week. And, I'm already having a pretty tough start. My blood sugar levels have been all over the place as you can see. Then, I wake up with blood sugar of 265. I feel like a peach. (Sarcasm) however, I'm going to enjoy this awesome protein shake for my breakfast and managed to do some arm band exercises. When I get to my next hotel, I'm going to get a good workout in. I got this. Although I do want to just go back to sleep. #diabeticprobs #DiabeticTraveler #Insomnia #HighBloodSugar #Insulin #OneTiredDiabetic #teststrips #t1d #juvenilediabetes #Diabetic #TypeOneDiabetes #Diabetes #WakeUp #2014 😴 2d
  •   elizabethmaxon such an inspiration...praying my little t1d daughter will continue to persevere and make the right choices like you! 1d
  •   life_of_jenks Oh man. I couldn't stay awake when mine was out of wack this weekend. Hope you can get it under control and focus on work. 1d
  •   itdoesntdefineme Praying and hopeing you feel better @type1fit 1d
  •   mancunian62 Hope BG numbers get better as your day goes on 1d
  •   trixiebetty Hope you feel better today- don't forget your H2O to help drop it- do you increase you basal by a certain % rate when you travel due to inactivity? My daughter does for long car rides - I can't remember if she does for plane rides, but it is still hit or miss. 1d
  •   diabetesabbe Hang in there 1d
  •   type1fit @elizabethmaxon what a beautiful message that made more than just my day! Your little girl is a rock star, a fighter and strong! Just like you. 1d
  •   faithfitnesstype1life Hope you are feeling better very soon. Highs can be tough to handle, especially when away from home. Remain strong! 19h

  •   livyloo825 Has anyone here ever ended up in the hospital due to diabetes? (other then check ups and when you were first diagnosed) like does that happen often? I have type 1 n I still have no idea 2d
  •   neatcraw @livyloo825 yes I have been in hospital a few times from hypoglycaemia. I became unconscious and I take seizures. It's only happened a few times but it is awful as you few confused for days afterwards. 2d
  •   thegooglefamily So it goes like this. You go low and for some reason or another you don't eat and you go low REAL LOW. Your body will take every step to protect your main organs like your heart The most consuming organ is the brain so your body will put you into a sleep mode by slowing down the brain. Therefor you get tired and All of your moments from here on are not placed into your memory. I wake up in emergency room with glucose bag hanging over my bed,a warming blanket and whoever is waiting for me to wake up hovering over me..I usually by this time know what happened and mutter something like. "Not Again". And then you get a blow by blow description of what happened and the things you did. Really it happens to all of us D'1..you just try from then on to control it better. I have been afraid but it is that fear that makes us all want a cure,.including the EMT's who I am sure I have elbowed and cursed at during my trip to the emergency room. I hope this helps you....... 1d
