Monday semi nakedness... I love hanging out in changing rooms with a poundland toilet brush winking at me 😉. I think my cholesterol levels have risen due to the tightness of my gym underwear, I will sort this out as today has been a day of sitting on a pitty potty with violins playing in the background. Remember problems can be addressed but don't build a mountain out of a molehill. Stress is a killer, confide in those who care and are willing to help you get back to greatness. Irrelevant opinions from small minds won't make you prosper in life. I had run out of baby oil, hence why I wasn't able to perform my hulk hogan moves in such a confined space ✌️😍 #pumplife #diabeticpump #diabetes #type1athlete #t1d #type1 #diabetics #insulinpump #health #fitness #type1strong #diabadass #keepcalmimonlydiabetic #diabeticshowbizshizzle #wisdom #getonnit #thegrind #diabetesuk #jdrf #dexcom #freestylelibre

#diabetic Question💉⁣ ⁣ Factors that affect your Blood Sugar Levels⁣ ⁣ 1) Food (obviously) ⁣ ⁣ As explained in one of my posts, the procedure of food digestion in the body is as follows:⁣ ⁣ 🔸We eat/drink (mainly talking about carbohydrates)⁣ 🔹Food gets digested in the stomach and carbohydrates are broken down to glucose⁣ 🔸This glucose is now in the blood stream (in our language HIGH BLOOD SUGAR)⁣ 🔹As diabetics, our pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to get that glucose in the cells to be used as energy and to balance our BGL.⁣ 🔸Therefore we need artificial insulin or medications to aid what we lack in.⁣ ⁣ Carbohydrates is the most straight forward factor that affects our BGL and the easiest to control as well, because as a type-1 diabetic, you MUST know your insulin to carb ratio (knowing how to adjust that will be explained in a different post).⁣ ⁣ In one of my very old posts I explained the different types of carbohydrates (will probably repost it). But in short, there are two types, simple (fast release) & complex (slow release). As diabetics, you might need to know what type you are eating to understand when to inject accordingly.⁣ ⁣ However, researches showed that carbohydrates are not the only macronutrient that has an effect on our BGL, researches showed that protein can spike our BGL as well (not as vigorously of course). ⁣ ⁣ How to know if protein has this kind of effect on you and how much is the spike? A simple “trial an error” (You are going to hear that phrase a lot as a diabetic, as everyone is different). Just while in resting mode, measure your BGL, have a scoop or 2 of whey protein (zero carbs preferably) and wait 30min-60min and measure again, monitor the difference, inject accordingly, keep a record. Done.⁣ ⁣ The full post explaining all types of carbohydrates in details can be found on https://www.keshred.com/carbohydrates-explained/ #shredabetic
#diabetic Question💉⁣ ⁣ How to control your blood sugar levels?⁣ ⁣ First, you need to know that NO type-1 diabetic has controlled blood sugar levels (BGL) ALL the time. People think that my control is on point just because I am athletic, unfortunately in reality it isn’t. We will always have our high and low readings due to the factors mentioned below.⁣ ⁣ So, if your blood sugar isn’t stable all the time or get random readings and you don’t know why, just know that you are not alone out there and that is completely normal. ⁣ However, you should never say screw it and not try to correct it!⁣ For a diabetic, having stable BGL is what makes you a normal person and can achieve WHATEVER you want like anyone else..I will explain in a different post the effects of hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) on the body for you to know the importance of keeping it in range.⁣ ⁣ Each factor below will be explained in a different post as I want to keep my posts as short as possible. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Factors that affects your blood sugar levels:⁣ 👉Food (obviously)⁣ 👉Physical Activity/Exercise⁣ 👉Stress⁣ 👉Insulin Sensitivity ⁣ 👉Carbs to insulin ratio⁣ 👉Correction dose⁣ 👉Illness/disease⁣ 👉Infection⁣ ⁣ Check https://www.keshred.com/sports-and-diabetes/ as I have been already posting diabetes related questions and answers and you might find your answer there. #shredabetic ⁣ 📸 @brianwouldphotographer

#diabetic Question 💉 ⁣ How can a diabetic build muscle?⁣ ⁣ Let’s counter ask that question by asking “Do you know the difference between a diabetic and a normal person?”⁣ ⁣ When a normal person consumes food such as carbohydrates, it gets digested in the body and broken down to glucose in the stomach.⁣ ⁣ What is the importance of glucose? The body uses glucose as the primary source of energy.⁣ The glucose is now in the blood stream and has no benefit to the body, therefore we have a small gland under the stomach called “Pancreas” that produces a hormone called insulin.⁣ ⁣ What is insulin? It is the hormone responsible for getting nutrients into the muscles and cells. So basically, without the insulin produced by the pancreas, the nutrients won’t enter the cells and the body won’t be able to utilise it as energy or fuel.⁣ ⁣ Now us diabetics, our pancreas is either not working properly or not working at all (will go through the different types of diabetes in a different post). So, our body does not produce enough insulin to help open the doors of the glucose and nutrients to enter our cells, therefore we take artificial insulin or medications that aids what we lack in to be able to utilise the food we eat.⁣ ⁣ Providing that you know how to CONTROL your blood sugar (will discuss in a different post), give me a reason as to why wouldn’t a diabetic be able to build muscle?!... #shredabetic #keshred

I’m hoping one of my diabetic friends, or someone in the medical profession (or anyone really) can help me figure out how to get rid of this blummin’ ring on my arm. I also have them on my stomach too and no matter how hard I scrub at them (as you can see I made it red raw - oops!) I cannot get them off at all. These photos - very flattering I know - are from my #freestylelibre sensor, but I also have them from my cannula sticky patch. Obviously I’m not complaining because they’re fab at sticking on, but I also don’t want to look like I don’t wash... 🙄 Am I being stupid or is there some special magic solution that will take it off in an instant? #diabetes #diabetestype1 #type1diabetes #diabetic #freestylelibre #medtronic640g #medtronic #diabeticpump #pumplife #pumplifestyle #help
Diabetes Awareness Month 💙 Day 3: A little reminiscence to the last year in which I have learnt about life with an Medtronic 640g insulin pump! Previously determined to refuse everything to do with them, and stick to a pen, i can now say that I have been converted! Funnily enough it has given me more confidence about my diabetes and allows me to answer questions about my invisible disability with less anxiety! The road still isn’t always steady (sometimes kinda feel like a drunk stumbling around in the dark), and the learning is always constant, but the control is less loop loop and the tears a little fewer. Definitely recommend to all who are considering!! I am greater than my highs and lows 💪🏻 #diabetes #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #type1diabetes #insulindependent #diabeticpump #medtronic #diabadass
DiabetesAwarenessMonth 💙 Creating this account to share, shout and cry about the good, the bad and the ugly!! Gonna attempt this November diabetes challenge to allow you to get to know me and me you!! Nov 1st and 2nd (backdated) : Type 1 Diabetes since 15years of age, approaching the 10year milestone! Rather steady start to the journey due to the shared experience with my diabetic sister 😘 However along the way, life happened and my diabetes was right there the entire time! Not always a pleasant side kick, but it has shaped my life and made me who I am today! Through all the Injections, blood, sweat and tears was my determination to keep going! Although I always thought I accepted my diabetes it has only been in the last few months that I realised how much I still let it control my life! Although it’s a Rollercoaster of a ride that I can never get off, I can sure damn control the journey. Talking about my experiences more recently has shown me how much like a breath of fresh air it can feel like to share. Maybe this will continue to help me breath easier and continue working through the highs and lows of diabetes! #diabetes #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #november #type1diabetes #diabeticpump #insulindependent #diabadass
Day 3💙 pens, pump, mid...💪🏻 I am a Medtronic 640g pump user, I have been on the pump for 8 years now, I started out on the pump because I was constantly ill as a child, they put me on the old version of the pump and I have recently got the new pump this year as it was past 4 years having my old pump and pumps in the uk have to be renewed every 4 years! The pump has changed my life and anyone who is considering having the pump you should it will be the best thing you will do💙#diabetes #diabetesawarenessmonth #awarenessmonth #type1diabetes #t1d #type1diabetic #pumpuser #diabeticpump #diabetic #insulindependent #improudtobediabetic

My name is Landen & when I was 1 year old I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. I ended up in the ICU where I fought for my life and won that battle! Its been a bumpy road having to adjust to a life full of finger pricks, shots, and doctor visits, but I always find a reason to keep smiling. Today I am a healthy 4 year old learning to manage my diabetes. On behalf of Diabetes Awareness Month im raising money to help find a cure !

People often take diabetes lightly, when it can be in fact, life threatening. On behalf of National Diabetes Awareness Month, we are selling T-shirts & hoodies to raise money for diabetes research on behalf of Landen Liam. Landen is a beautiful blessing who is 4 years old and was diagnosed at 1. He is currently on the omnipod which cut down how many needles he gets, aside from constant finger pricks, from 14+ to just 2+ shots weekly. Managing life with diabetes is never easy, so we fight to help find a cure every chance we can !

These is my second Instagram page.. it will be a Instagram about my diabetes and coeliacs and the daily struggles I face.. I have suffered from type 1 diabetes since I was 8 and I’m now 21, I’ve been on the pump for 8years now, I got ceoliac disease when I was 9 a year after being diagnosed with diabetes.. everyone struggles t cope but If anyone ever needs support I’m always here to listen❤️#diabetes #type1diabetic #diabetics #ceoliac #gluteenfree #diabeticpump
So yesterday I went back to hospital and they showed me three different pumps and how they work. I’m torn between the Medtronic pump and the Omnipod. What would you recommend and what are the advantages and disadvantages to your pump? I think I would prefer the Omnipod as it’s tubeless and easier. However they say the Medtronic is better quality and always recommend it to pregnant woman or for those who are trying, which then made me think maybe I should get this one as I really need to get my HBA1C down and tbh I’m probably thinking of having a child within the next two years. What happens if I want to wear a dress with the Medtronic? - seems a bit complicated. I also Horse ride and teach dance to children and worry they might pull the tube out? Please help me make a decision- 4 years is a long time so want to make sure I’m happy with the one I have #diabeticpump #medtronic #omnipod #type1diabetes #lifeofadiabetic #nomoreinjections #help

So this evening I was on a date and my pump decided to alert me and others around me that my pump needed changing in an hour 😂🙈 I was mortified but I casually brushed it off and said that it was an alarm on my phone. Since having my pump I have been so self conscious about meeting new people and going on dates but after 15 months of being single I finally plucked up the courage to go on a few dates this month 😂 Tonight’s being the most embarrassing with the alarm going off 😂🙈 The joys of dating when you’re a type 1 diabetic!! #reallife #dating #livingwithdiabetes #lifeofadiabetic #chronicillness #curediabetes #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #insulindependent #insulinpump #diabadass #diabetesuk #diabetesanddating #beyondt1d #diabetescommunity #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #type1life #t1dlife #t1dlookslikeme #type1warrior #diabetestype1 #diabetic #diabeticpump #omnipod #omnipodder #omnipodinsulinpump #typeonediabetes #typeonediabetic #typeonelife
So excited for these incredibly fun skins! I can’t wait to get them on my sensor and pump! It may seem small to those who do not have diabetes- but something like this totally makes my day! I have to have things attached to my body, I may as well make them fun and exciting for me! Thanks so much @etcgang for these awesome prints and designs!

On holiday with me . #wearingdabbee accessories for my diabetes
Well this was fun 🙄 Bolused for breakfast and went sky high... tried to correct more and still didn't come down... then realised there were bubbles in my tube so I obviously wasn't getting my insulin in properly. My set had only been in for 2 days and there were no bubbles when I put it in but today there appeared to be loads. Does anyone know if it's common for heat to make bubbles form in the insulin? #diabetes #diabetic #diabeticpump #pum p #insulinpump #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #type1 #t1d #diabetesmellitus #cgm #continuousglucosemonitor #dexcom #g6 #dexcomg6 #heatwave #heat #hot #insulin
