DAY IN THE LIFE | Living With Type 1 Diabetes

Share this:

It’s diabetes awareness month and so today I’m sharing with you my daily life as a mum living with type 1 diabetes. I’ve recently had a bit of a set back with my a1c results which has in turn, had a knock on effect with my mental health. This video is also in collaboration with Meg, another mama having to deal with diabetes 24/7…

    Have you tried a plant based vegan diet. Not sure if it helps. Try watching " What the Health" on YouTube. Think people have drastically reversed their health issues xx are you not vlogging anymore 😕

    You’re certainly not alone! Type 1 25yrs here (I’m now 30). Have you tried pre bolusing before foods? Also, have you basal tested? If not, talk to your nurse about doing it, really helped me!

    Your face in this thumbnail sums up my feelings about type 1 😂 type 1 is very difficult to live with, and sometimes it’s very overwhelming especially when you do all the same things and get different results 😫 stay strong, your diagnosis doesn’t define you 💕

    Thankyou Jess for this video, you are not alone, we all sound the same, the ups and downs of t1. If you want even better control you may consider standardising your diet for a while and weighing everything. Then you get to know whats effecting what, if the bolus or basal is off, or excercise, stress, sleep etc. Knowing yourself helps tight control. But be careful of the trap ive fallen into, weighing everything and eating pretty much the same. Id like to know the weight of that apple. As your low carb i imagine youve read Richard K Bernsteins book and heard his amazing story, i only ask cause werent sure if you knew you have to bolus for protein. He also puts a youtube video out once a month answering peoples questions. Not sure if youve heard of the juicebox podcast, aka scott benner on youtube, i look forward to listening to it each week, and think it would be great if he interviewed you. All the best, chin up.

  16. Kellie Cockcroft

    I didn’t realise how many times a day you had to test your levels. Do you feel different as your levels change during the day or would you not know unless you tested? X
