While LADA and MODY get lumped in with type 1 diabetes (or worse, "diabetes" in general), they present their own unique challenges.

LADA stands for "Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults".

MODY stands for "Maturity-Onsite Diabetes of the Young".

Wins & Fails

Colleen's Win: I did some bolus experimentation to prevent some high patterns. About a month ago, I was sick for a week, and found that I had to bolus two and a half times what my pump said to bolus for any carbs I had. Just because of the insulin resistance from being sick.

Jessie's Fail: She had pizza and ended up with her BG going over 220 all night. She's beginning to think she's feeling a little burned out.

Tip of the Week

Just a semi-regular reminder to get outside and enjoy the fresh air!
