HI There, I've just recently (last Thursday) been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Since then I've had a couple of doctors appointments and due to start my injections tonight. I'm just a little overwhemled with all the information and what the terminology/ levels means etc. Just wondered if anyone had any useful tips etc about how to deal with this. For example should i make student aware of this condition? What things can i eat etc? I'm due back to see the diabetic nurse on Wednesday to demonstrate i can inject properly - so should i have my morning injection as normal or wait till i see the nurse? I know there is no 'right time' to deal with this but just recently suffered a bereavement as well so everything is just swimming around in my mind. Sorry for all the questions and many thanks to responses in advance.
