My story is rather unique. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 67, with no prior diabetes and no family history of diabetes. I was diagnosed when my blood glucose shot up to 988 and was admitted to the hospital, one year after having quadruple by-pass heart surgery. This has radically changed my life, as now my life appears to center around diabetes and how I handle it. At age 74, I am still exceedingly active, I regularly work out doing water aerobics, etc. I am also the coordinator of a food pantry and do much of the stocking and rearranging of food cases. I always carry emergency food items and Transcend Glucose Gels where ever I go, even if it is only a short trip to a store.
My Health Details
- Type of Diabetes:Type 1
- Low blood sugar instances per week:4-5 Instances
- Daily number of times checking blood sugar:7+ times/day
- Managing Diabetes with:Insulin Pump
How has Transcend helped treat your low blood sugars?
Transend Glucose Gels are portable and easy to consume. They are also the quickest way I know to raise up my blood glucose quickly. I do like the flavor of the strawberry and currently have not tried the other flavor.
