Having Type 1 diabetes for over 22 years, I think I know a little bit about the condition. No, I’m not an expert. I didn’t go to medical school but 22 years of life experience has left with more knowledge about certain things than the average person might know. Sometimes my knowledge comes into play if I have been experiencing a high blood sugar for a little while. My husband will ask me if it is because I need a new infusion set or new insulin. He is trying to help and I am so thankful that he is knowledgeable enough to be able to “guess” with me as to why I might be running high. Usually though, I tell him no that’s not why I am high, it’s because of XX.
