DESPERATE for pump supplies! either silhouette or quick set infusion sets. no insurance and I've been trying to sell anything of value on Craigslist to come up with the money for them, but no luck!
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!
How likely is it to have a type 1 kid? I want to have kids but I feel like they are doomed to have type 1 like me. Do you have kids? Do any have T1 too?
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?
What do you think about medtronic's pumps!?
Does anyone have an old CGM that they would be willing to sell or gift. I am stuck in that insurance/income limbo where I can't get the CGM or afford to buy one...ty for your time.
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!
Has anyone else noticed that your blood sugar goes up while you are sleeping. I will often go to sleep with my blood sugar in the 80s and wake up in the high 100s to low 200s
I have a brand new Medtronic pump, CGM and sensors - I hated a pump... Would love to give it to someone!!
So i just got a cgm and love it but i was wondering if there is anything i can do to reduce post meal spikes. Ive tried giving insulin 15-60 min before a meal, but still does not help. Any suggestions
