VIDEO: Being Poorly with Type 1 Diabetes

Like everyone else in the whole of the UK I was struck down with a lurgy to mark the official start of Autumn. Managing type 1 diabetes can make things even more interesting if you’re feeling under the weather, so I had a little natter about how I navigated living with type 1 while feeling gross. My blood sugar levels were noticeably higher, and I took what I like to call an ‘instinctual’ approach to adjusting my doses. Scientists and mathematicians, avert your eyes.

Aside from the natterings, I went to the gym which was a visual delight for all involved, ate some carbs (shock), generally pottered around East London and celebrated my new winter jumper with some red wine and an exceptional curry. Solid weekend behaviour I think you’ll agree.


Let me know if you’ve been under the weather and your blood sugars have been a bit cheeky about it. Lots of love and Lemsip xx

    Not here, but bg’s haven’t had the message. Since starting secondary school and hitting growth spurt we’ve lurched from stubborn high to severe hypo most days. And now school holidays are here and there’s actually a chance to do some basal testing… Well, school holidays are here so nothing is the same, of course! Hope you’re feeling better x
