What do you think about medtronic's pumps!?
In the endos office, and the resident just told me my symptoms are because of my "poorly controlled" diabetes. Lol She then went quiet when endo came in and we discussed my regime, adj & fine tuning
I have a brand new Medtronic pump, CGM and sensors - I hated a pump... Would love to give it to someone!!
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!
How do u guys correct before going to sleep? For example im 192 now about to go to sleep. Im using novoRapid and lantus and it always scares me to correct before bed so i wont get a hypo while sleeping

Vomitting.extreme nause. Large ketones. Fruity/acetone breath. Mom won't call doc, thinks it's my fault. Haven't eaten besides some steak and water for 2 days. Pee a lot and lost about 7 pounds. Help
Checked BS 3 times, both read over 600. Mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experience with DKA. I have almost all the signs of DKA expect large ketones and vomiting. Only small ketones and a stomach ache.What do I do? I would feel safer at a hospital but mom won't take me!Please Help!
