Some pumps have reminders on them. I'm always forgetting or getting distracted. I'm getting a pump soon. I hope it is a reminder

All great advice. You might look into a Dexcom G4 platinum. It's a continuos glucose monitor. It has alarms and tells you when you are to high or to low. It also gives you a reading on the scream 24/7

Just a quick question to the type 1 diabetics. How long after a hypo does it take a person to get back to normal. My boyfriend had one 2 weeks ago and I think I'm pushing him a little.
Hi. I was recently diagnosed with type 1. I'm in the hospital now because my blood sugar hit extremely high levels.I'm freaking out a bit because I hate needles.if anyone has any ideas, let me know!!!
It seems to me that there are support communities and organizations for kids with T1 diabetes, college kids with T1 D, and their parents. Do adults with T1 D not need support?

Looking for prayers for my Hannah, she is in intensive care in Sioux Falls, poor peanut was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes
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?
Are we allowed to ask or offer pump supplies on here?
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!
