Another great #diabetes story by Peg Abernathy about her personal experiences. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peg-abernathy/personal-health-_b_5565190.html … #doc #dsma
When I was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes more than 25 years ago, I had no health insurance. And due to my young adult perspective and extreme naiveté about managing my diabetes condition, I believed that very little about my personal li...

The parameters that affects the body's glucose level are complex.

What I eat - a banana is not just a banana. Is it ripe? Well, then it is sweet and have one effect. Bread with wheat is useless. Barley and rye is way better. Sour milk vs. Yoghurt - same issue. Soda is like poison.

When I eat - depending on morning, lunch and finner - the body's metabolism is unique for every individual. Some can eat a full breakfast, other might waste a full day eating in the morning. Also injections and CGM are reactive systems, not proactive. You shall take injections 15-30 min before a meal... how many (if any...) does that in real life?

How much I eat - pretty logic.

The season/climate - I normally use 30% more insulin in the winter than in the Summer. You spend more time outdoors and exercise. When the season changes you need to be careful making the transition.

Training/Exercise - either you exercise regularly and very planned OR skip the training whatsoever (not too smart). Both approaches results in stable glucose levels which is the target.

Infections or virus - bad in general, but for a diabetic it adds yet another dimension or two.

Stress - almost the worst parameter. Stress releases hormones (insulin is a hormone you know...) The hormones are mostly "sweet". You shall be able to run or stand and fight and you will need all available energy in this survival mode.


All of the above effects can occur simoultaneously. Then it gets really complex.

The body is not a machine, cgm helps but I have a slightly sceptical approach to any of the algorithms - whether it is AI involved or not.

Big Pharma won't get an artificial pancreas out in the market, so somebody took the "do-it-yourself" (DIY) route. Some engineers with #diabetes are "closing the loop" (CGM + Insulin pump) on their own. http://www.wired.com/2014/12/diabetes-patients-hacking-together-diy-bionic-pancreases/ ‪#‎WeAreNotWaiting‬ ‪#‎dsma‬

I personally know at least three women with diabetes who walked down the isle with small, light pink areas on their carefully chosen wedding dresses, where blood from a lanced finger had been hastily cleaned by loving moms, sisters, and friends....
