My Ice Cream Diabetes

My CDE recently told me, that brittle diabetes is not only a generally used description of hard to control T1D (as is mine but I think that's just because I'm really sensitive to... a lot of things), but actually an official term in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases by the WHO.

My first association with the word brittle though, is this:

Bolus worthy.
Bolus worthy.

Sometimes diabetes makes me chuckle.

And then my roommate said yesterday, when I finished a basal rating test with a flat line of numbers: "Seems even your macadamia caramel diabetes is nice sometimes". He had me bursting into laughter. :D
