1. The obvious choice for my number one: INSULIN.
2. And for me, the life changer, DEXCOM.
3. SUGAR should be on me at all times. Sometimes I fall short of being responsible and on top of making sure it’s always with me. But lucky for me, it’s always worked out, and I’ve always been able to find enough sugar to come back from low blood sugar hell. I’m putting a fresh pack of Mentos in my purse NOW. I swear.
4. Daily EXERCISE. I know this habit has helped me live a healthy diabetic life for nearly 25 years. No complications. And I hope to never have any.
That’s my short list of the absolute essentials in regards to my Type 1 diabetes care.
