Hello! I was wondering if there was any type 1 diabetics here? Looking for more people who actually understand how mentally and physically draining this disease is....
A blood test came back showing I have the glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody. I have been tested for type 1 before, is there a chance I could still be a diabetic? My doctors won’t respond to our messages about these results and I’m getting anxious
my name is Camila, but only my family and most professors call me that, I usually go either by Kimi or Kae (nicknames I’ve gotten from my amazing friends from two different parts of my life) and I’m from Puerto Rico - most of the time I hear Kae more often these days since Kimi was more when I was a kid/early teen. I’m 24 years old now, and I’m a Borderliner, I’m the organizer of an online “group therapy” that focuses on learning DBT skills after I’ve been in a DBT program myself for the past 4 years. I also have depression, anxiety, ptsd, I dissociate, get a lot of sleep paralysis and so on, but all these things make me who I am today and who I am today is actually a pretty damn tough but kind person. I struggle with every day life even after completing the program because I’m fully aware this is a /personality/ disorder, so its a lifetime disorder (also have type 1 diabetes) and even though I lead a group of people, sometimes I need someone to lead me, and I gotta admit, I’m a little ashamed to even admit that... I shouldn’t be, I know, I just wanna /be/ the point instead of /make/ a point sometimes, I guess?
CGM for my Diabetes I'm new to this whole process and just trying to figure everything out. I'm nervous and panicking about it all but trying to slowly work myself through it.

Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes Without Drugs
Until Dr. Barnard’s scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it—and could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as this groundbreaking work reveals, this simply is not true. In a series of studies—the most recent funded by the National Institutes of Health—Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven, life-changing program, diabetics can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard diet; and cut back on and in some cases eliminate medications while reducing the risk of diabetes complications.
The Diabetes Code: Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally
From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes. Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes. Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease―a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting―not medication.

He offers a complete health transformation, starting with a diet with a high nutrient-per-calorie ratio that can be adapted for individual needs. Dr. Fuhrman makes clear that we don’t have to “control” diabetes. Patients can choose to follow better nutritional guidelines that will control it for them, even before they have lost excess weight. The end result is a medical breakthrough—a comprehensive reversal of the disease.
