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!
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!
What can family members do that is most helpful when dealing with diabetes?
Does anyone else type one eat a lot? For past month or so I literally carnt stop it's like I'm never full.
I have a brand new Medtronic pump, CGM and sensors - I hated a pump... Would love to give it to someone!!
What insulin do the type 1s out there use? I've always used novolog (used to use levemir and novolog before pumping), but curious what others use and why? What's the fastest acting insulin out there?
I was just diagnosed with type one. I've read a lot on here about pumps. should I be looking into getting one?
This one's kinda for the ladies, but I don't know maybe guy diabetics have this problem too? Do y'all experience frequent bladder and yeast infections? If so have you found anything that helps? Thanks
Which supplies do you most commonly misplace, forget or lose altogether? How do you keep track of them?
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)
