I'm Type 1 diabetic, diagnosed 14 months ago or so, was sick with staph and other things and finally ended up in the hospital where they learned why. I was 134lbs when I went in, was still working out at the time but looked like a ghost. I hit the gym at least 4 days a week.
Since diagnosis I've gone up to 200lbs and can move around some ok weight, 405x3 for deads, 315x6 for squats today, and my max bench so far has been 260. I guess you could call me a heavy drinker too, so gaining the weight wasn't too tough.
I really layed off the beer about 3 weeks ago after a real bad bender. Since then I've been dropping weight, down to 193 today. I've increased my food intake now since I thought it was just a fluke, a few oounds no big deal, but now that it's hit 10lbs I said that's enough.
So anyways wondering if any other Type 1 diabetics successful into powerlifting on here and what your experiences are.
