MNTexan

Dx’ed T1D March 2018 at the age of almost 40 after being sick with weird symptoms and losing a lot of weight for several months and going into DKA. Live in South Texas. I love motorcycles, the beach, traveling, and personal finance. I follow the Dr Bernstein high protein very low carb diet and using the smallest amounts of insulin I can. I decided a while ago that while this condition is a pain in the ass - it will be the best thing that ever happened to me. It forced a major eating change and the subsequent lower weight that happened while giving me more motivation to figure out how to integrate exercise to live more fully - that is TBD once I figure out my CGM prospects.
