Five things to remember about T1D Diabetes care isn’t a contest. It’s overrun with numbers. Don’t judge. Let the remaining guilt (if any) go! NO one is perfect. Diabetes care is not an action, it is a SKILL SET. Therefore, it can be practiced and improved upon. Control is the end result of your decisions and choices. This applies to minute to minute control as well as long term control. NO health care provider manages anyone’s diabetes. They never can and they never will. It’s a self managed condition.
Five practical advanced diabetes care tips Better synchronize your insulin and your meals Check blood sugars 2-3 hours after meals Correct any out of range sugar you discover (“treat to target”) Work to get morning blood sugars into target range (F-F-F) Review/analyze your blood sugars at least weekly
