Trina Type 1 Diabetes - My Teen Eating Habits
As a teen, I pretty much ate what I wanted. I was 15 when I first got my insulin pump. At that point, I was able to bolus whenever I wanted to eat something, and if I ate more than I planned, I just gave a little extra. It gave me a lot of freedom. I’ve never been someone to eat a ton of anything. I don’t eat a full box of cookies, I eat a couple of cookies. Thankfully, I haven’t had to struggle with that. But as a teen, I pretty much just ate what I wanted, I even ate junk food. I was pretty much a normal teen as far as that goes.
