  • Re: Negative Antibodies (Type 1B)? Looking for info

    Has anyone on here asked their doctors to test their children for Insulin Anti-Bodies? I personally was diagnosed at 7, I'm 23 now. But recently, I started doing a lot of research, realizing that I NEVER tested positive for the beta cell anti-bodies. I did however, 3 months ago, test positive for insulin antibodies. It has become such a problem

  • Re: my daughter who is 8 bg runs 230_500 two hours after meals

    Hi! My name is Kristen and I have been diabetic for 17 years. I was diagnosed when I was 7. This doesn't sound exactly like diabetes. It sounds a little more like 2 things. 1. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: This creates a resistance to insulin. I am not sure on the age requirements for a diagnosis. Your daughter may be too young for this to even be

  • Re: Insulin Resistance in a Type 1 Diabetic

    UPDATE*** I am still searching for answers. I am getting more and more frustrated with each day and each new doctor. I have tested positive for insulin auto-antibodies, and the doctors think that has something to do with my problems, since we have tried Metformin and Symilin with no change. When I give my Humalog in the morning, it will not work, and

  • Re: Insulin Resistance in a Type 1 Diabetic

    I have tried every insulin out there: Apidra, Levimir, Lantus, Humalog, Novalog, Humilin N, and Humilin R. All of them had the same effect on me. I have tried going off the Zyrtec and it has not made any difference. I was using a pump when these episodes started but my doctor pulled me off, because she wanted to make sure it wasn't a pump default

  • Insulin Resistance in a Type 1 Diabetic

    I have been diabetic T1 for 17 years. I am 23 now. About 6 months ago, I became severely insulin resistant. My typical hourly basal of 1.2 quickly rose to 9.0 and that didn't even budge my sugars from the upper 300's. However, later in the day, it was as if all the insulin started working and I would crash with lows in the 20's. I have 2

  • Re: high activity = high blood sugar?

    Bruce, I know exactly what you mean! The other day I went to the gym, my sugar was 107, when I got home it was 304. WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?!?! I did a bunch a research and found that when we work out, several things happen. Our bodies create cortisol which causes our livers to produce glucose. (Our bodies also do this when we are mad, stressed, upset..
