I had no idea you could get T1 as an adult until I was laying in a hospital bed in DKA! I live abroad so there’s a lot of miscommunication here so I just take insulin check my sugars and pray everything stays okay until I get home in August!
Is your husband on injections or a pump? I am lucky I think (from the little I understand) I have LADA which means I have a lot more pancreatic function then a typical type 1 but it’s slowly being destroyed by the antibodies 🙁

Thanks! We’re going to Rarotonga. I can’t wait to do nothing but relax on the beach! It’s a delayed honeymoon. We got married Jan 3rd 🙂

yeah it’s actually not that uncommon to be diagnosed in adulthood; we have a handful of T1 friends who were as well. My understanding is that T1 is T1, but if you’re diagnosed as an adult you may have a slightly better prognosis. That may just be because you spent less time as a diabetic though. Once you lose all insulin production, it’s all the same. My husband was on injections for about 8 years, then he switched to a pump. It cost us like $3K, but it’s much more convenient than injections. It’s also helpful to have basal insulin from the pump vs long-acting insulin injections that don’t keep your blood sugar as stable.
ohhhh congrats!!! Did you post any pictures?? I’ll look! Rarotonga looks amaaaaazing!!!
