I was diagnosed T1 following a DKA, I'd had a virus and its suspected that it attacked the beta cells in my pancreas.
Anyone else afflicted with this?
Do you get many hypos? I work nights and seem to get hypos between 4&5am or in the afternoon.
Any advice welcome smile

I was diagnosed in June.

Have you mentioned this to your diabetes nurse? My ds is t1 and gets hypos when his insulin dose has been too high. We recently cut his long acting (Lantas) from 6 to 4 and this has completely got rid of his morning hypos.
Shift work is obviously going to massively complicate this for you and I'm sorry I don't know enough myself to help more.
