I have been a pump user since 10/2005. I started with the Medtronic Paradigm and used their pumps for 8 yrs. In the past year, I have tried the Asante Snap and OmniPod, which I use now. I liked certain features of the Snap but had too many failed…Continue

Blood sugar and insulin discussions from non-diabetics

I've noticed that it really irritates me when people without diabetes talk about sugar spikes and insulin as if they are experts. Does anyone else feel this way? I know it comes from the fact that us PWDs deal with these things on a daily, even…Continue

Bloodwork Came Back

Posted by jesikabeth on August 30, 2014 at 9:08am 0 Comments

So my blood work came back. My c-peptide is a .84

Now we wait through the weekend until my stuff is submitted on Monday to the insurance company, and then we'll find out about approval. Oy vei!

If it does not get approved, then my doctor will do a peer-to-peer with the insurance company.

Being I am a Cancer patient, they say it may be a bit more of jumping through hoops, but I should get approved.

Waiting is the worst!
