Brittle Diabetes?

Type 1 Thursday - Brittle Diabetes

Have you ever heard of brittle diabetes?

What is it? What are the signs? How can you get out iof it?

Brittle Diabetes – Type 1 Thursday – Hanna Boëthius

Although the term “brittle diabetes” is wildly discussed and can come across as very negative and blaming, it’s a concept many people with diabetes (unfortunately) are familiar with. Perhaps you’ve been labeled “brittle” in your medical file, just lika I have in the past?

What can you do about it, then? Is it just to accept it and trry to live as peacefully as possible with it?

Au contraire!

Brittle diabetes can very well be dealt with, and removed from your life, too. It all depends on what the cause if for you. A few common causes of brittle diabetes are medication troubles, stress (blood glucose killer number 1!) , eating disorder, gastrointestinal issues, gastroparesis or insulin sensitivity, to mention a few.

Once you know this, try to look at what lifestyle changes would apply to you – nutrition, medication, movement, mindset, stress management… are a few points to keep in mind.

Share your experiences with me! What’s your number one trick for brittle diabetes?

My Pump Break 2020

Pump Break 2020 - Type 1 Thursday

Have you ever taken a pump break?

I recently had a six week break from my insulin pump, and I’m not going to lie, going back to MDI (multiple daily injections) wasn’t as easy as I thought!

In this episode of #type1thursday, I share my reasons why, pros and cons of MDI, getting back in the pump, as well as my note-to-self for next time (hint: all of it exciting, none of it smooth…)

Tuna Meatzza

Tuna Meatzza - Type 1 Thursday

I’m making one of my favorite low carb pizzas – tuna meatzza 🍕 (yes, that means the base is made out of canned tuna!)

Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! 😋 It’s full of delicious protein, fat and some carbs. And – it’s delicious. It’s also the first time I ever cook in front of the camera. 🐒 This week’s #type1thursday is something else…

Let’s go!

Ps. If you want to watch the whole Cook & Chat (not just the recipe), click here to watch it on my Facebook page!

Tuna Meatzza – Type 1 Thursday – Hanna Boëthius

Tuna Meatzza Recipe

Tuna Meatzza base

2 cans of tuna in brine/natural
1 egg 2 tbsp cream cheese
ca 0.5 dl grana padano cheese

Mix all of it until it becomes a smooth mix. Flatten out between two parchment papers, pre-cook in the oven at 180 Celcius (355 Fahrenheit) for 10-15 minutes.

Meatzza Sauce

1,5 dl Ajvar (turkish vegetable sauce)
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp concentrated bone broth
italian herbs
garlic powder
onion powder
a splash of water

Let simmer until it forms a nice pizza sauce

Tuna Meatzza Toppings

Mozzarella cheese (shredded, without starches!) You can use fresh, too, but it gets waterier.
1 red onion
black olives 😋

After pre-cooking the pizza base, spread on the sauce, followed by the toppings and put it back in the oven for about 10 mins.

Enjoy a low carb, nutritious and delicious meatzza! 🍕 🤤
