I am also participating in an extended Clinical Trial for Tradjenta (linagliptin) for use with Type 1 DM. Despite genetically Brittle Type 1 Diabetes, close attention and careful self-management along with frequent consultation with my Medical and peer support teams, has helped me avoid all but minor complications from long term Diabetes mellitus. My October 2015 HbA1c was 6.7.

I also actively participate in Diabetes peer-support groups internationally, founding three Facebook groups: Diabetes Peer Support, Brittle Type 1 Diabetes, and Clinical Trials.

You can find me in other support groups including TuDiabetes, the Diabetes Hands Foundation, and JDRF, to name a few. Diabetes "cyber-friend" networks are truly world-wide. Just do a web search for Diabetes.

Spark People's Diet and Nutrition Tracker for Android and Spark site have helped improve control immeasurably. Food Carb content and tracking my daily nutritional intake are at my literal fingertips wherever there is a WiFi or data connection. My BMI and BDI remain in the normal for five years. Several years years my weight goal is maintenance!

Carbohydrate tracking is essential using my Medtronic Paradigm Revel 723 Insulin Pump, and easy easily accomplished 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 and 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
