After having an "elevated blood pressure" during ACL reconstructive surgery in July, my surgeon wanted me to have it checked out. He referred me to a friend of his and I went to meet with the guy. He sent me for lab work to see what was going on and low and behold...he tells me I'm diabetic. Type 1. This was back in August. Now, I'm on insulin twice a day and thankfully I haven't had to change my injection time due to being on a call...yet. Is there anyone else out there living with diabetes and what problems have you run into because of being a firefighter?
