Type 1

Type 1 diabetes is caused by your immune system mistaking your beta cells (from which you make insulin) in your pancreas as foreign and attacks them.  This leaves your body without insulin (a necessity for life), thus not able to process glucose correctly. We can find you the best affordable care to treat this longterm and achieve a healthy diet. Knowing more about which foods affect your blood sugar and which don’t, so that you can make informed decisions on a daily basis. We can help you find resources to gain a better understanding of the physiology of what is going on in your body, the mechanics of the medication and how to balance diet and exercise while keeping your blood sugar levels under control.

You're making some progress but you're just not getting to your A1c goal.
