    Hi Frank, I read all your posts and I feel so sad that you are to having such a struggle with T1D. I can relate to the constant frustration! I’m the mom of a T1D teenager and the best thing that ever happened to us is reading this book: “Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution” Have you heard of it? If not, go get a copy today! He outlines EVERYTHING you need to to know about being a T1D…including sick days. He is T1D too. His methods have given us our lives back. No more crazy highs or scary hypos, just beautiful nearly flat lines on the CGM readout and A1c of 5.0% (I’m not sure what that equates to in Australia) I’m not kidding about the amazing results. Everyday is not perfect, but the kid is so much happier and getting back to his happy-go-lucky personality. Best of luck. I’m rooting for you all the way from Oregon!

    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    One of the first things my endo taught me was sick day management – within days of diagnosis I knew my sick day plan better than how to carb count and self-titrate.

    Sorry to read you didn’t get this. It would be great to see standardised care and things that Drs should cover when people are diagnosed with diabetes.

  3. This is horrible. 🙁 You should absolutely have gotten all of this when diagnosed. Sick day plans are drilled into our heads here to the point where I am like I KNOW. I’m sorry you missed out on that. Hopefully your story is one that helps change things in Aus. 🙂
