There really isn’t anything off the table for Gunner. Thanks to modern medicine, and new technology, T1 isn’t what it was years ago. We feed Gunner whatever he wants (within reason), and, as long as we count his carbs, and adjust for his bolus, we keep his BG within range. Being a 2 y.o., we don’t let him drink sugary drinks (I.e. sodas, or Juicy Juice) and he doesn’t get a lot of sugar snacks either. Mostly, he wears Goldfish, and Fruit Snacks (Puppy Dog Pals, Mickey and the Roadster Racers, etc, etc). He eats regular meals with us, unless he’s having a 2 y.o. Tantrum. Anyhoo, it’s just about letting him be normal and experiencing life like anyone else.
Tandem works with dexcom. It’s the only one I’ve had, but that kind of set up is going places.
Thank you. Looking forward to using this forum for my daughter who has type 1 diabetes.
I’m new to forums and i don’t know how to ask a question to all members?
@Bobmac hi Bob, at the top right corner there is a purple button that reads
“+ New Topic”
hit the button and type your question. it’s a little less clumsy if you are on a computer or tablet… it’s a little weird on a phone…
welcome to Type One Nation
Thank you for your help.
I would like to find a lifestyle coach in co. Know of any?
I am a mother of a type 1 in Austin TX. I am looking for someone also using the g6 dexcom near by.
I don’t know how long I’ll be up here I may just cancel my account. I’ve been in a very bad place lately and I was told to join a support group with people that are dealing with and going through what I am, but yet I make a post needing some help and just some advice, but yet my post is going ignored and people have posted after me and are getting support and acknowledgement. It seems pointless to me.
hi @Lilly_Harrison Lilly, I hope you reconsider - this site isn’t as active as some social media where some 100 million people are posting every second… sometimes it takes a little bit to get feedback. The big thing we all have in common is type 1, so just know that dealing with it is something we all share. hope you get feedback soon.
