Hey #doc - anyone have ideas about how to keep my infusion site from coming out when I do crunches? (I've only used ab & back sites)
with type 1 diabetes since 2009.
Try your arm or upper, outer thigh...
Pay attention to where your tummy folds are when you are sitting, and try to avoid putting your site in the crease. Or try your thigh.

I hate having diabetes more than anyone will ever know. No one can see it but it rules ur life 24 hours a day
just curious what other people keep in their cars for possible reactions. I tried glucose tabs but they go bad in summer heat. Now I use fruit wraps.
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?
