A Person With Type 1 & A Person Without Type 1

Type 1 Diabetes, what a complex condition. No 2 days are the same. So for all of you out there who get frustrated, feel let down, don't know what to do next.

This is for you:

Every time you are having a bad,frustrating,confusing,out of control, down in the dumps day. Visit this post!

      This is a slide of a "Non Diabetic Child"

I would sell my soul to give this back to Claudia.

                                                  This is Claudia's CGM reading !!

Is it any wonder we struggle on many occasions to understand & gain control.

What I find strange is Claudia's "considered well controlled" with Hba1c/Alc of 6.1 & 6.3!!   To me looking at her CGM readings, she is all over the place. No wonder she feels awful sometimes and I wonder what on earth has happened. I feel that CGM readings of someone with Type 1 should be shown along with a CGM reading  of a"Non Diabetic child/adult on a regular basis. You put 2 people together and they will " both appear healthy" and no-one will really understand. You show them 2 CGM readings watch their faces change with realisation of
 "What on earth is going on"? 

Please share this with as many people as possible.


  1. looks a lot like my dd's sensor readings too. You are doing well to keep all those peaks on the graph.

  2. It's the invisible illness. Our kids appear healthy, and they achieve good A1C results, but still, every day is a battle with diabetes.
