I have recently been diagnosed type 1 after ending up in hospital with DKA . At the age of 52 this has been a shock . I keep reading the forum as I have found it really useful. I’m having some dark days but I am lucky to have the support of my amazing husband . I left hospital in Devon being told to take certain doses of novarapid and lantus. No one explained that these would need adjusting, or what the blood sugar levels should be . The next day had a hypo luckily I was at the doctors. Finding it hard to go out with confidence that I will be okay .
