Being a diabetic mum

Eleanor-Rose - posted on 03/17/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hey! I was just wondering if any of you have any advice? I'm a first time mum to a little boy of 6 months :) I'm 19 and have been a type 1 diabetic for 7 years. Throughout pregnancy my control was amazing it had never been that good but towards the end the insulin wasn't as effective and I was taking double doses and I would have highs of 11mmol so my baby was born at 37 weeks he was 11lbs :( anyway now my control is awful I never have the time to eat let alone inject and I feel so run down I'm really struggling :( I can't look after him and myself. Is there any tips you can give me?
