I know this is for type 1 diabetics but the type 2 diabetics chat room is ALWAYS empty. Long story short, my ketones are through the roof but my sugars aren’t terrible. Should I go to the hospital?

Anyone have any luck using those freestyle libres? I’ve bought 4-5 and I’ve only had one last the full two weeks...two broke by bumping my arm and one didn’t even work because the needle bent when I put it on. Literally wore one for less than 6 hours tonight and don’t want to go back to the pharmacy to go buy test strips and lancets even though I just bought the libre today...

Hi all I’m 41. Rushed to hospital in June with pneumonia. It attacked my left lung. Then it attacked my pancreas. Then while I was nearly dying they said I’m also type 1 diabetes. Tbh I’ve taken to it very well. Had good blood readings of late hitting 6s 7s 7s. Had odd spikes of 10 here and there but in general I’m doing very well compared to other newbies. Yes I know it’s new honeymoon period but I’m really doing good and live in hope I can reverse this. :)

i’m finally taking care of myself after having diabetes for 7 years and not doing anything to take care of myself bc i resented it and hated how different i was and let me tell you not taking care of yourself w this disease will kill you i had to have my doctor tell me i was killing myself to realize how real and dangerous this disease can get. not taking care of it caused me to go into a deep deep depression which made it even harder to want to manage it. please i know it sucks having this especially when you’re the only one in your family but please take care of yourself w it don’t make my mistakes i’m now suffering the consequences of it

Anyone on? My insulin I think is not working. I’ve heard that it only works for about a month once taken out of the fridge. Is that correct?

Had a bad night last night. At about 8 PM had a 41 blood sugar so I started drinking copious amount of maple syrup. Next thing I know I’m on my couch with the local PD and FD asking me if I know my name and if I know where I am. I’ve had this disease 28 years and sometimes it sucks just as much as the first day.

I would love to go running round where I love, however I get anxious about having a hypo when alone. I also find the amount of things I would need to carry to go for a run make it difficult. I would love to use the NHS’ couch to 5k app, but just don’t feel confident enough. Anyone else feel the same? Or been brave enough to take the first leap?

Hey, i went to the doctors for some blood tests and then a few days later i had to to back again as my iron levels were so low, anyway i told her that i had been peeing soo much and been really thirsty! This was Wednesday just there amd its only got worse! When i was there she said oh did the doctor on Monday test you for diabetes and i was like no? So I’ve been freaking out since Wednesday about this! I’ve writing down everything ive ate and drank plus how often ive been peeing as its really a lot! I was wondering if anyone went through this before being diagnosed?

Hey, so i got my bloods done on Yesterday because the doctor wanted to test me for diabetes as I’ve been experiencing symptoms and also I’ve had pins and needles and numbness for so many years They phoned me back today which i wasnt expecting as the results normally take a few days The receptionist said i need to go back in on Wednesday to get more bloods done because ( im not 100% sure on what she said but i thinkk it was ) my hyperglycaemic levels are high or low can’t remember (I have the worst memory) I was wondering if anyone has been through this or has any advice as I’d really appreciate it
