My boyfriend is in hospital he had sugar numbers over 600, then two days after hospitlization hes down to 202, then 106. His mother is saying he must go sugar free. but she has not indicated to me what type he is. I want to support him as best i can, but i dont know how this is diagnosed in adults 40+ in age. he is overweight but i didn't think that was a big factor if its type 1. my dad developed type 1 at 60 and hes 85 now and a pro at diabetes management. they said it was INSANELY rare for him to develop type 1 at his age. he wasnt even fat. submitted by /u/Emileerainbow [visit reddit] [c ..read more

I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago and I have used Libre 2 for two weeks now and its clear to me that I might not be able to realize the full benefits it as it is. I need to design something for it for my use...but I might need some help with the measurements and dementions and possibly a 3D image of the device (only exterior). Thanks. submitted by /u/kuiper01 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Got diagnosed at age 21 I’m now 23 years old. A1C was 21.4 when I first got diagnosed and I managed to drop it down to 5.3 within 6 months and I’ve maintained it at that level since. I suppose I’m sharing this today for the people out there struggling with their diabetes. My numbers are down below.

Typical Day Chart from my CGM

So what do you think? I’ve had this pattern since I started testing my levels. I’ve also been on a low carb diet and have yet to push myself food-wise to see what might be acceptable. Oh and my early morning dawn effect is a constant. It’s low and quick but always there. Although, the other day it took a break. It was the weirdest thing. https://preview.redd.it/cp0fqs0g6acd1.jpg?width=2400&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5f086f74cf00a07c2b450bd26cc3d91ee5951294 submitted by /u/Right_Independent_71 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I was diagnosed at the end of March/beginning of April. I have had prediabetes for several years and took a class back in 2022. Yesterday, I had my 3 month follow up with primary care physcian and my A1c came down from 6.7 to 6.4, so I'm now down in the prediabetes range. Also, my cholesterol went down 40 points. Lastly, I lost 12 pounds. submitted by /u/PortCharlesChuckles [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
