Batting High Blood Sugars - 12/6/2018

Riding the Diabetic-Coaster definitely includes Battling Highs throughout the day, depending on insulin, no exercise and of course what we eat or drink. Check out this video to hear a few tips on how we Battle the Highs.

Battling Lows & Hypoglycemia Unawareness - 11/26/2018

This video dives into how you feel when your blood sugar drops too low and that you can actually lose your feeling of going low if this happens consistently over time.  Don't worry, if it does happen, you can get that feeling back of going low, if you bring your blood sugars above 100 for a period of time. I've battled mostly lows in my Diabetic life and I actually went for a few years living with Hypoglycemia Unawareness, one of the reasons I got Shugga to help me in the first place. To hear I could regain this was such a blessing to hear and since then I've worked hard to keep my blood sugars up and regained that feeling once more!

Can T1Ds Eat Sugar? - 8/7/2018

Shares about how Type 1 Diabetics can have sugar yet we always need to be thinking about the impact those yummy treats can have. To be honest I've gone from one extreme to the other, eating to much sugar, to no sugar at all. What I've found is that it really comes down to balance and moderation, as well as, knowing the numbers - carbs vs. insulin needed to have the least amount of impact on my blood sugar. (Also some finger crossing at times, hoping that I got it right)!

Where is it? - 7/24/2018
