  1. Hi, Dave. I ran across your blog when I was searching the internet for “A day in the life of someone with Type 2 diabetes.” I wanted to know if you would mind sharing what a typical day is like for you. I am working on our health literacy team and wanted to create a type of simulator for Type 2. Here is what I found online for Type 1 to give you an idea of what I am looking for:

    Your 24-hour Schedule with Type 1 Diabetes
    For the next 24 hours, you have type 1 diabetes. Follow the schedule on the attached document and make sure that every time it indicates “Blood Glucose Check” or “Insulin Administered” you give yourself a good snap with a rubber band! You will learn a lot about what it is like to have type 1 diabetes, but there is one important difference: at the end of the 24 hours, you can take off the rubber band and go on with your life. We hope that you will continue to wear it for the many people living with type 1 diabetes, young and old, who cannot “take their diabetes off”.

  2. Yes, Victoria, I’d be more than happy to share my typical day with you. I have a lot on my plate at the moment, so give me a day or so and I will e-mail you. It will be coming from Dave Knechel, so you know it won’t be spam. Thank you for considering me. I am more than happy to help.

    Sincerely,
    Dave
