I have chosen to view my type 1 diabetes as a blessing and not a curse. I want to encourage others with Type 1 to strive to keep your A1c down because it is so important for your later life. Maintaining a low carb lifestyle and plenty of exercise has helped me tremendously in keeping my a1c at a healthy level. Sometimes I get those annoying questions and comments such as “can you catch it?” Or “but you’re not fat.” You just have to brush it off your shoulders and realize there are a lot worse things in life!
