In need of supplies
Living with type 1 diabetes since 1997.
Hi all, I'm trying to build my own artificial pancreas set up via openAPS. I've purchased a used Medtronic 722 but need reservoirs (300ml) and infusion sets to try it out. Can anyone spare a few?

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)
Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
Has any Type 1 diabetic used Afrezza? Is it better? Major difference?
Fastest low treatment?
So, does anyone have a favorite app or website that they use for their diabetes? I'm always looking for useful tools to help me manage, and any suggestions would be welcome!

I currently ran out of ketone strips and can not get to any at the moment. Can I just use my actual blood sugar meter and just dip a strip into (tmi) urine? Need advice here! I'm high and feel sick!
Hey guys, I have had diabetes for almost 2 years I'm 16 now and I am over weight . I need support where i dont have any atm i dont live with my family have type 2 diabetes and it's caused by Pcos .
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.
