I am also participating in an extended Clinical Trial for Januvia (sitagliptin) for Type 1 DM. Despite genetically Brittle Type 1 Diabetes, my close attention and careful self-management along with frequent consultation with my Medical support team, has helped me avoid all but minor complications. My January 2014 HbA1c was a fantastic 6.4!

I also actively participate in Diabetes peer-support groups and created a Facebook page for Brittle Type 1 Diabetes Other support groups include TuDiabetes, the Diabetes Hands Foundation, and JDRF among others. I literally have Diabetes "cyber-friends" world-wide.

My Diabetes control has improved measurably using the SparkPeople Diet and Nutrition Tracker for Android). My BMI is even better: normal for over two years, helped by a 25+ pound weight loss.

Carbohydrate tracking is essential using my Paradigm Revel 723 Insulin Pump, but easy using the Nutrition Tracker on my Android SmartPhone or on the Web! The SP Android app is fantastic. I use it many times a day with my Diabetes tracking program, SINOVO's outstanding SiDiary 6.

I've joined several Diabetes related Spark Teams, and recommend that you explore them. There are Spark Teams for almost every interest or goal -- or start one yourself.

My search for better Diabetes control is much easier with appropriate technology, as is life-long learning. I'm here to learn from others, and to share my insights and experiences on The Path.

Thanks to all the warm, helpful SparkPeople and to a growing number of SparkFriends!

Warm regards,
John
