Shop T1dLife to spread awareness

As a designer by trade, I couldn't contain my daily inpsiration from Coral and desire to spread more awareness of T1d since so many people confuse it with Type 2 diabetes. That's why I finally decided to sell my graphic designs on clothing, accessories and homegoods on Zazzle.com/t1dlife. I hope to educate the general public of Type 1 diabetes with shirts like T1dTruth. I set an individual commission for each item I design and earn royalties each time it's sold on Zazzle. They print and ship most items direct from California. Select royalties will go towards gifting other T1dfamilies. I'd much prefer to donate diabetic related items or supplies versus donating money to JDRF or ADA. Don't forget to follow @type1diabetic_life on Instagram and @typeonediabeticlife on Facebook. Mahalo in advance for your support!

Here are a few recently designed items available on Zazzle.com/t1dlife. You can pick any style and color item you would like my graphic printed on:

Fiasp First Try

We finally got our new Endo to prescribe us Fiasp! For those who don’t know, Fiasp (fee-asp) is the latest and fastest mealtime insulin manufactured by Novo Nordisk available in a FlexTouch Pen or vial. It is advised that you take the same safety precautions before using Fiasp as you would any other fast-acting insulin such as Novolog or Humalog. Fiasp is considered a rapid insulin because it contains the addition of niacinamide (vitamin B3) and a formulation-stabilizing amino acid (L-Arginine). B3 increases speed of initial absorption while amino acid aids in the stabilization of the formulation.
Our First Try She was over 300 before dinner - ideal for testing this out. No thanks to "low" binge eating in the car while I was driving after leaving the Spring Festival with a cup full of treats. I didn’t wanna give her a full pre-bolus for the snacks since she ran around so much at the playground, but I stacked her insulin as needed. We were soon on our way to pick up her Fisa…

Road Trip: Napa Valley

Type 1 diabetes makes everything about life much more complicated It involves way more planning than we've ever done just to head out the door on a daily basis. However, we don't let that stop us from adventuring like we did on this most recent road trip to Napa Valley, CA. My husband had a long weekend off all the way up util the Fourth of July. So, we decided on driving up to Napa since we've never been before - even when I previously lived in Southern California on my own. We managed to book a pet-friendly hotel at the Meritage Resort and Spa. The road trip plus one bathroom stop and another stop for lunch at Denny's along the 5 freeway on the way to the hotel took about a total of 7 1/2 hours. FYI, Denny's has the nutritional menu on the table for every item! Stay away from their fluffy pancakes unless you wanna be "high" (BG over 200 mg/dL) for hours post-prandial. I failed that even using Fiasp in the pump, but at least she was content and fell bac…

Dexcom Tegaderm Sandwich

The Dexcom Tegaderm Sandwich
is simply a method I've used and perfected since Coral's previous D-nurse mentioned it to help keep her Dexcom G5 CGM sensor on for the minimum of seven days without any skin irritation. Coral has sensitive skin and cannot wear any fabric dressings such as Grif Grips, Pump Peelz or even Tough Pads. She can't even use Skin Tac because it causes a severe rash with tiny red bumps and is extremely painfully itchy. See Dexcom calibration tips below.
Firstly, I'd like to strongly advise that you refer to Dexcom's User Guide and Setup Wizard before and in addition to this blog. It's available direct from the app on your smart phone - which I hope you've installed before coming here. This will eliminate basic questions such as, "How do you start the sensor?" or "Do you need the [G5] receiver with you at all times?" or "How often are you supposed to change the sensor?" Also, understand that Dexcom may not b…
