I have a very easy time of it. Being a type 1 diabetic that is. Compared with the difficulties other T1Ds experience, I’m almost embarrassed.
I don’t prick my fingers 6-10 times a day, the Libre takes care of that. I inject only twice a day, 3 units of long acting Levemir at breakfast, 2 units at the evening meal. I don’t bolus or correct with rapid acting insulin injections. I don’t count carbs. I don’t get serious hypos. Any spikes exceed 15mmol (270mg/dl) on sick days only. My HbA1c is 5.6%. Other than Levemir I take no medications, no statins, no blood pressure meds, no nexium etc. The only supplement I take is a B12 tablet twice a week. BMI is 20, blood pressure 115/60, resting heart rate high 40s, and total cholesterol 2.4 mmol/l (93 mg/dl).
