Hello, i’m a 24 year old type 1 diabetic.
Took my first dose of rapamycin yesterday, i know some may bulk at me starting rapa because of my diabetes but i do get blood tests done every 3 months and check my blood sugar 3+ times a day.
My blood tests before starting looked great, everything in normal range and even looked better than most people’s (according to my doctor) and my a1c was below 7 (6.3)
I’m hoping to stall aging as much as possible as prevention is better than trying to fix aging related diseases as they come up, anyway ill try my best to document my journey as i go and point out any struggles ill face
Hi - and welcome to the forums. I think you may be the first Type 1 diabetic here (at least the first to announce that status). It will be interesting to hear about any changes in your blood glucose levels as I’m sure you watch the levels closely.
I don’t have access to my blood results because they send it in the mail and i accidentally threw it away however they do print out my previous results when they send my new ones as a reference. I’ll take another blood test and my other tests in 2 months when i go to renew my prescription @RapAdmin
Anyway, acne comes from bacteria. The idea is that if Rapa reduces your bodys ability to fight bacteria, then you will need to try harder to block them. Washing with soap gives the bacteria an advantage. The solution is to use that liquid Dove soap in the above post and add 10% Urea. It triples one anti microbial peptide and quadruples the other. I bought this one:
And it mixed right in and works like crazy.
If you try this, let me know if it works. Ideas this great usually fail for me. The real world is rough.
