Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

Mc Carbs

Sundays are what my kids refer to as "tradition day".  We go to church in the morning, but that's not what they're talking about.  The tradition they are referring to is that I work on Sunday evenings, they go with their dad to visit his grandma, and they all eat McDonald's at her house for supper.  They enjoy it and look forward to it all week.

Since Rosie is now tracking her own carbs, this morning she asked me to look up the Mc nutrition information.   Apparently she's going to change up her usual order a bit.  ;)   As I type she's carefully calculating what she can order tonight if she has a snack this afternoon. 

Hat tip to McDonald's here.... their nutrition page is easy to find, easy to read, and there's a PDF with all the info we need available from their website.  I'm not a huge fan of Mc food myself, but I do appreciate how easy they make it to figure out the carbs for Rosie's "tradition day"!
  I'm posting daily in November in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month and the WEGO Health's National Health Blog Post Month. #NHBPM


  1. Kudos to those restaurants that make it easy to find nutritional information!! Makes life so much less stressful!


Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
