Alyssa's Journey with Type 1 Diabetes

An outlet, a diary of sorts, a place for thoughts, a place to connect,
an expression of feelings about Juvenile Diabetes......

3rd Annual Diabetes Blog: What can we improve on...

What can we improve on….

Well, I’m not sure there is anything that we can do better. Most problems we have with Alyssa’s D1 is out of our control. No two days are alike; but lately, for the most part there are more good days than bad. Now, of course this disease is ever changing and what is working now, may not work a few months from now. Things have been going well recently and I think this is because we have a consistent routine of checking blood sugars and calculating carbs. I have found in the last year and a half, that consistency is a must. If she eats the same amount of carbs at about the same time each day for her meals, then her BG’s are normally within range. Of course there are times that her BG’s are low or high and that is usually because of extra activity or if we’ve gone out to eat (I’ve found most restaurants’ nutrition information is not always accurate).
