I am 33 year old female that was just diagnosed with type one diabetes...what happens now? Thank you all for you advice...btw, I am 33 years of age, weigh 115, so I am not overweight and I am a Naturopath, so diet is not an issue.

Pediatrician 's  Response
Type 1 is treated with insulin replacement therapy—either via subcutaneous injection or insulin pump, along with attention to dietary management, typically including carbohydrate tracking, and careful monitoring of blood glucose levels using glucometers.
