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

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone had a spare vial or two of humalog they could spare? Thank you so much and have a great day😊
Has any Type 1 diabetic used Afrezza? Is it better? Major difference?
I just started using Afrezza (inhaled insulin). Still not sure how well it is working. Has anyone else been using it? Good or bad experiences?
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?
I'm actually a mom to a 5 year old that's been recently diagnosed with t1&he's been saying pretty heartbreaking stuff like I wish I could die or I hate my life I've tried everything any1 have ideas
I am in the market for my first insulin pump. I will either chose the Animas Vibe with the Dexcom 4g CGM or the MiniMed 530G with Enlite. Please vote on which you would chose. Thank you!! :)
Hi there. Looking for a mentor/friend for my 12 yr old. Diagnosed 2 yrs ago with type one diabetes and has lost confidence and could use some warm coaching or sop port. Dan be a tween or teen via phone and skype. Thank you
Ok, I admit it. I'm a diabetic noob. Am I also in denial that I have yet to resign myself to sticking myself regularly for testing? Hell, I hate it when others stick me! Must I now do it myself??!!
If anybody is looking for a t1 pen pal for their child/teen please contact me. We have a program through T1D Mod Squad where we match kids up!
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?
