Ahhh, Dennis (and fellow T1D’s), Acetone: the fruity scent on our breath when our BS is high, plus from Every Single pore/orifice in our bodies emanates that scent. I have several T1D’s in my home town with whom i’m close to. I’d suggest that those who’ve been dx’d to somehow someway have a shoulder to lean on/and as well to be the shoulder that others need to lean on. Sometimes we just need to talk about our condition, sometimes: They do too. However, one does need to be true to their own-selves in the sense of knowledge. Do your homework. Don’t let another inform you “how” to adjust your basals. Know how to adjust your carb ratio, listen to your Endocrinologist. However, I personally do make my own adjustments with my pump, as well with my Barnes Hospital Endo, I’m the one who walks in my shoes, my endo doesn’t. And seeing them every 3 months is so very necessary because of what they see on my printouts (from my pump read-outs from Carelink - a USB that downloads pump info to their computer – which can as well be done at home with your own computer. Talk to your Endo about Carelink, serious. There’s a wealth of info that we all can share, that’s for certain. Back in '74, and again in ‘79, my sister and I went to 2 Diabetes Camps, here in Missouri. One called Camp Lion’s Den, the other called Camp EDI (Exercise, Diet, Insulin). And wowzers it was just awesome to meet a hundreds T1D’s, and having fun, and letter writing to each other - postage was 9 cents, and yeah: once in a great, great while there was a long distance phone call allowed between us. Times were tough then. Nothing was taken for granted. Ever. Literally, my sister Grace and I would drain the insulin bottles to empty till we told our parents we were out, as in: that very day. And our hometown pharmacist would open store (on Sundays), just for us. I’ll never forget the goodness within him. i’m sure that the repeat calls to him got him pissed at times, but he did it for us. (thank you Barry Naeger.) Folks, be good to yourselves, and your future of this condition, read, read a lot. If one allows to let this condition rule you, nope, don’t let it. Get a grip, and be pro-active with your life. I know, easier said than done. I know. We all have different situations that impact our lives, thus our health. If one was to ask me about being a diabetic (these days), (and they have), my answer is: holy cow: my pump and CGM are My External Pancreas, they have NO idea of the impact that these things have made in my life, and I basically think: You have No idea of the major changes that the years have been made. It used to be: she’s so sick, she has to be on FOUR shots a day, and tests 6 to 8 times a day. Are you kidding me? See, they have no idea of what “BS’s/our well-being is”. I don’t live a perfect life, by any means, however, things have changed for the better, no doubt. When I was dx’d in 1971, Mary Tyler Moore (also a T1D), said a cure is just around the corner… well, we live in this era where it is the most flippin’ best ever. Trust my words. Live well and be grateful.
