Type II here with a big family history of it.
I had to go "cold turkey" as my blood sugar #'s went wacky, and this seems to happen after I consume a lot for a long time.
From 12 pm to about 2 am (lots of time and lots of product) for weeks on end.
Problem is that my #'s get harder to stabilize when I quit, but I know if I don't take a break I am gonna end up in the emergency room with a needle in me.
Plus I might end up having to give myself shots.
Diagnosed 14 years ago and been smoking pot for over 40.
Just today my #'s ranged from 325 to 80 (normal for me is 135).
I blame the 325 spike on the grape jam I had on my toast.
I can't wait till they get the stem cell act together and I can get an injection and grow a new pancreas (I hope).
I can't wait til people stop becoming ignorant (not saying you are haha) and realize that stem cells can be taken from things other than fetus'.
But yes I agree man, it will be a glorious day when our shitty disease is curable. Don't complain too much in the mean time man, us Type 1s quite honestly have it a hell of a lot harder on a day to day basis haha
I was diagnosed with type one diabetes on September 21st, 2000 at the age of 11... Always had pretty good control over my sugars. and about 4 1/2 years ago I started smokin pot... It wasn't until then that I realized how much more in control my sugars could be. Weed truly is a wonderful medicine.
To give a more measurable description: I have been using an insulin pump for quite a while now, which is noce cuz mine is fancy and makes graphs, and documents shit, and gives averages, totals... all that shit... well anyways, I've noticed that on days that I'm not smoking small amounts consistently throughout the day, I use about 15-25 units less. Bringing my average daily insulin intake from about 60 down to 45-35... healthier for a diabetic, and cheaper too haha
Thank you Cannabis! haha
