How does everyone keep track of their supplies / prescriptions / doctors phone numbers etc?
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?
For those that take insulin with your meals, how do you go about taking it when you're out at a restaurant or other social gatherings? Do you take it out in front of everyone or do you try to find a secluded spot to take it? How does it make you feel when you take it, knowing people are curious?
Does anybody know why it's so difficult to lose weight being a type 1 diabetic? Something to do with insulin? And how can you make it easier to lose weight?
I have extra supplies, insulin pumps and CGMs. See list for details: Dexcom G4 receiver, Dexcom G5 receiver, Omnipod pump and four boxes of Omnipods (exp 9/28/2018), Medtronic 523, Medtronic 723. Let me know if you are interested, shoot me an offer. Thanks
Does anyone have any ideas on getting supplies like insulin and strips without insurance? I have been spending so much money!! Help!
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.
Need breakfast ideas that don't spike blood sugars
I'm 19 and I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 13... Everyday I wake up I feel sick to my stomach like I'm going to throw up does anyone have any suggestions?
Checked BS 3 times, all over 600. Won't register on meter. Have almost all the signs of DKA but mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experienced with DKA and we would just waste our money. We can't go to another hospital because we dot have insurance there. Please help! I feel horrible!
