I couldn't agree more with this post: 2 pillars to start getting T1 under control - knowing your blood sugar and counting your carbs! If you are struggling to do these 2 things then ask your healthcare professional for help.

Great blog from "The Diabetic Shambles" looking at the advantages that technology can have for the management of T1.
