Diabetes Awareness Month, Day 28

Today I’m going to re-post something from last year. It popped up on my Facebook newsfeed. First, I laughed. Then I realized that I posted it exclusively on the Facebook page. So I’m actually going to transfer it here instead of simply linking to the Facebook post.

Diabetes Awareness Month, Day 28. I think yesterday we discovered the devil of Diabetes, aka the T1D equivalent of 666. But we were unintimidated and taught it a good lesson. Story in pictures below:

Dexcom alerted us to a high. It does not read BG above 400, so this was bound to be interesting

Behold the T1D equivalent of 666

The logical course of action – exorcism! Exorcism here being defined as expelling diabetes devil via exercise.

And it started working quickly…

An hour and a half later exorcism was proclaimed to have been successful. See ya, devil. You are not a match for us!

I should add that of course some insulin was required to finish beating diabeetus into submission and bringing V into a healthy BG range, which was accomplished in no more than another hour. Without strenuous exercise it could have taken double that time to get BG under control.
