Type 1 diabetes is sometimes called insulin-dependent, immune-mediated or juvenile-onset diabetes. It is caused by an auto-immune reaction where the body’s defence system attacks the insulin-producing cells. The reason why this occurs is not fully understood. People with type 1 diabetes produce very little or no insulin. The disease can affect people of any age, but usually occurs in children or young adults. People with this form of diabetes need injections of insulin every day in order to control the levels of glucose in their blood. If people with type 1 diabetes do not have access to insulin, they die.

It's 4 am.

Sugar was 440 before bed.

She's down to 245.

I just wanted to say that this middle of the night blood sugar checking stuff is getting old.

Really old.

Not complaining.

Just sayin'.

That is all.

  1. Sounds like you had a long night! I hope Sugar's BG was normal by this morning. It's too bad Az doesn't do daylight savings, because I am sure an extra hour of sleep would have been nice for your family.
