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

Hi guys, I'm in desperate need of...
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?
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!
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!! :)
