    the mind I try to dedicate at least 1 3 hour everyday to do stuff that I enjoy doing but it has to be a genuine physically related activity that means no TV and preferably no PC games but rather something that involves the actual use of the physical body like light plants flowers growth work around the house light construction renovation work car and or various mechanical devices fixing and so on I also prefer weight exercise but I try to have at least 20 of cardio training in between due to the fact that I can use the time spent at the gym to socialize About the food I prefer to eat rather normally no low carbs no low fat but with as much green stuff as possible and train my axx off in the gym Sugars I consume also due to the frequent but mild hypos I get from training hobbys I have not read Dr Bernstein s book but I rather came to the conclusions you described on my own trough logic and trial Anyway it seem to have worked pretty well so far despite the various bad premonitions I constantly receive form Endos when I

    mood to switch my insulin brand I don t bother to go see them Every new Endo is the same First you see their usually overweight dietician who pulls out plastic replicas of food and or busts out the Canada food guide insert your food guide here Then you see the Endo and give them your test logs and they tell you to adjust your basal dose which you ve already done if you re paying attention to your logs or change your insulin carb ratio again already done if you ve been paying attention or more likely they tell you that you re doing a fine job but perhaps you shouldn t drink so much and maybe your HbA1c could be just a tad lower because we all know that the closer our blood sugars are to normal the less likely it is that we ll get complications basically the same speech I ve gotten since I was diagnosed at 13 26 years ago Rarely are they aware of any new research or products or treatment options They usually make a 6 month follow up which I never attend because it s just going to be more of the

    you say that the docs are crushing your morale and that they are so stupid that they do not even know that sometimes they do more harm than good Also I know that they believe that if something bad happens is your fault but if some improvement happens then it must be proof of their good Doctor skill So the solution I propose is this Learn as much as you can about how to manage your T1D you will have to make him understand that he is the most qualified person for this job as he is with the patient 24 7 Make me understand that you take better care of yourself than the doc propose to him a under 6 99 A1C performance criteria Also understand that the Docs have no power over you they can not force you to do things so basically it is unpleasant just during the visit when all that they can do is talk So take the problem in your hands lower your A1C because if you keep it low you will enjoy the good stuff in life longer for instance the ability to enjoy good times with a girl this is rather high on a 18 years old male s priorities and do not mind the doctors judgmental remarks because they can only hurt your feelings but a bad A1C can take many good things away from you Also it would worth trying to bribe him for his trouble both for a good A1C and for the fact that he smiles nicely when the pump police explain to him that he is a lazy and non motivated and that he is not trying hard enough For instance my father s solution was that as long as the A1C is under 6 80 I

    Whatever it is Be his coach and cheerleader Help him develop goals that he thinks are reasonable for his health and his lifestyle Support his efforts as he wants you to Be proactive with the endo He could download before he goes in and have a few questions about his care to ask This heads off the Dr s problem of having to say something and it coming out as

    dull and process driven They know what the textbook says and that s what they apply to human patients After a while you get tired of the endless judgment by someone who does not live the disease himself It is insulting to be lectured time and time again about your inability to accomplish the impossible We were designed to live not to be a 24x7 pancreas The best thing I
