Welcome both to life beyond a boring old pancreas….Only been diagnosed myself for just over 6 months and as Tim says things do get a lot better and easier to manage. Loving the “organised is good” from a few folks, that’s me out of the frame as I’m rubbish at that kind of stuff! I took the wimps way out when first diagnosed and went onto twice daily Novomix 30 which was the easy(?) option or so I thought, it works but daily readings are up and down a lot and the level of control just isnt there. After reading some blurb I’m using it 3 times a day and am starting to carb count to get a better handle on it. Seems to be working but I’m gonna get my finger out and go onto MDI’s as soon as poss. Mind you the 2 HbA1c’s I’ve done have been 6.5 and 6.2 so I’m in the ball park for now.
