Today my daughter got her first A1C check since being diagnosed in December... It was 14.5 on the 19th of dec, and today it was 8!!!! I'm very happy about this!
Are we allowed to ask or offer pump supplies on here?
My son Brad was asked to speak last night at a JDRF walkathon fund raising evening about his experience with AFREZZA the new Inhaled Insulin. People were VERY excited. Over 100 attendees. He is 26&T1
Looking for a "pay it forward" place. Switching pumps soon and will have a year's worth of unused supplies. Don't want to throw them away...
My husbands birthday is coming up and we are going for dinner then he and our friends may venture elsewhere. My question is if you go out how do you explain the diabetes kit? Do bouncers even care? (Needles, lancets etc)
In the endos office, and the resident just told me my symptoms are because of my "poorly controlled" diabetes. Lol She then went quiet when endo came in and we discussed my regime, adj & fine tuning
Looking for prayers for my Hannah, she is in intensive care in Sioux Falls, poor peanut was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes
Anyone have suggestions for where to place a Dexcom cgm sensor? I would normally use my abdomen, but because of pump sites, it's pretty beat up there. Has anyone tried the back of the arm? The idea freaks me out but I may try it.
I have been been getting really low blood sugar (around the 50s) ever since I came back to college a week and a half ago. I'm usually in class when it starts to happen or really far away from my dorm. Also I eat a healthy well balanced breakfast and lunch. The only thing is that I have to walk a lot since it is a really big campus. It is really scaring me. Does anyone have any opinions on what can help me?
Feel like the worst m in the world right now! Let my husband take the kids to dinner and a movie, gave my 7 yr old her insulin... 3 hrs later it was at 'high' rechecked and it was at 541! Feel like crap! Didn't calculate her carbs that well! :(
