I have a brand new Medtronic pump, CGM and sensors - I hated a pump... Would love to give it to someone!!
Last Sunday, in the brutal heat, we were at my son's baseball game. I overheard another mother of a T1D mention heat effects her son more than a non-T1D kid. Anyone with this experience?
I'm considering an insulin pump Bc I've heard they are getting to be a lot easier to use. Does anyone have any recommendations? Has anyone tried the Snap?
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!
Which supplies do you most commonly misplace, forget or lose altogether? How do you keep track of them?
I have been diagnosed since the 5th grade I'm now 18 and my doctor wants me to look into the pump .. How do you feel about it ?!
Are we allowed to ask or offer pump supplies on here?
I started Juicing in Feb. 2013 and in Sept. was told I was no longer diabetic. So I asked the Dr. Was he sure and he said Yes. So I was confused and shocked, so I asked him do I need to continue testing and his response was No you don't need to test at all. Months later & I'm confused. Not sure.
Any of you have used the dexcom or freestyle flash? which problems did you find? thank you
I was just diagnosed with type one. I've read a lot on here about pumps. should I be looking into getting one?
