Is this a thing? I was found to have no immunity (despite being vaccinated) in my late 20s. Have since had 3 more MMR shots and only a low-level of immunity. For some reason, I don’t build immunity.

As a researcher and a relative of someone with T1D the ignorance people display is amazing.. people still don’t understand the difference between T1 and T2 or that shopping at Whole Foods and going to crossfit doesn’t make them a nutrition expert.

Last night was the first time in 5 years we had to use this. We didn’t use the whole thing just some to get him higher but very scary and sad. I HATE

So my 6 year old T1D has decided him and I are taking up running. Any of my T1D family have any pointers for us? Not really sure what long distance running will do to sugars and how I should prepare us. I always keep his kit on me but still.

I have lived 35 years of without going low carb, so it must be a miracle that I have never been in hospital and have 0 complications.

First 24 hours of a new sensor = current sensor reading is 6 out... pump thinks 3.8⬇️ blood says 9.7. Option A - leave it until next and final calibration at 1.30am and have alarms going off every 15 mins. Option 2 - try and calibrate now...

Question for the - my boy (British) hopes to go to uni in the US. Trying to find out how to fund insulin/med supplies etc. Does NHS still cover British students while studying overseas? Idea of health insurance costs anyone? Any pointers?

But people with don't have to take frequent snack breaks 🤷🏻‍♂️ Though I do appreciate your broader meaning here... if you have a specific medical need that must be addressed in order for you to safely and effectively function, by all means ask for an accommodation.

I hope this absolutely awful ad is not made by a group from the UK. Hugely misleading, completely ignores the difference between different types of diabetes and doesn't consider self management (i.e. a type one can have an ice cream assuming take enough insulin for it)

Is it really a holiday if someone doesn’t ask “Should you be eating that?” or posts on Facebook that they’re “going to get diabetes” from eating too much?

Took another step today; abandoned the T1 boy poolside at a swim comp to completely look after himself whilst I went off for a swim and wasn't connectable. More of a big deal as he uses a different insulin in comp. Small steps. Fear made me swim faster.

Pharmacist today had a few questions to ask: Do you know why you’re prescribed this? Do you know what you’re doing with it? 🤔 My reply.. What, insulin? Yes I think I know after almost 18 years of using it. Potentially a little rude.. but come on!! 😐

Finished 's book (I'm Special) and netflix series (Special) this weekend and recommend it to everyone, but particularly anyone who happens to be gay and T1D like me. Was surprised, though I probably shouldn't be, by how much it resonated.
