Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
I am in the market for my first insulin pump. I will either chose the Animas Vibe with the Dexcom 4g CGM or the MiniMed 530G with Enlite. Please vote on which you would chose. Thank you!! :)
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?
I've been wearing my Dexcom for about three months now just wondering if any other adults have had luck placing in a spot other than the abdomen?
in desperate need of lantus pens or vials. I can trade hundreds of syringes. only have two days left no way to get samples or discounts
Looking for a "pay it forward" place. Switching pumps soon and will have a year's worth of unused supplies. Don't want to throw them away...
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 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.
So, does anyone have a favorite app or website that they use for their diabetes? I'm always looking for useful tools to help me manage, and any suggestions would be welcome!
It seems to me that there are support communities and organizations for kids with T1 diabetes, college kids with T1 D, and their parents. Do adults with T1 D not need support?
