1st time pumper. Animas Ping OR Omnipod?

Started by jesikabeth in Insulin Pump Users Forum. Last reply by MamaLou 24 minutes ago. 2 Replies

I saw my doctor yesterday and we talked about the pump. I am currently on the vGo, and it's helping to control my sugars, but it has its limitations (which was a big reason why we talked about getting on the pump.)My doctor agrees it's a good idea,…Continue

Jogging?

Hey guys! I'm a fairly active person and enjoy running. I tend to jog 2-3 miles at a time, but tomorrow I planned a 8 mile jog (lets hope my legs dont turn to jello!) I was wondering how I should manage my blood sugar? I know I should eat some food…Continue

Worst meter cases

Started by Jen in General Diabetes Topics and Pre-Diabetes. Last reply by Jen 14 minutes ago. 9 Replies

I thought the case that came with the original Contour USB was bad. It had a blurry, easily-scratched plastic bit that covered the meter screen, and the meter faced in such a way that it was impossible to test without either removing it or the vial…Continue

Diabetes and Me

Posted by jesikabeth on July 25, 2014 at 7:34am 1 Comment

I had been diagnosed with insulin resistance since 2005, I was 25 years old. I was in recovery from a long battle with Anorexia and Bulimia, and my mother who is a nurse realized my breath was smelling 'sweet'. I went to an endo, who did a 2 hour blood glucose test on me, and voila insulin resistance. I was put on 500mg of metformin a day and sent away with instructions to come back every 3 months for something called an A1c. And, of course, to eat right (yea, thanks for that... everyone at…

Calm before the rollercoaster

Posted by Jen on July 25, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

My blood sugars were amazing while I was away at a week-long workshop! I brought all my own food due to allergies; the only thing I ate from the cafeteria was some fruit and some plain salad. Despite that I still had two days where I felt awful. I'm not sure what the cause of that was, but my blood sugars were great. The highest I went was, I think, 11.4 or something and I had no lows aside from a handful of readings in the high 3s.

The weird part is that the minute I got home the…

More Doctor Pinball

Posted by Tiki on July 24, 2014 at 10:18am 2 Comments

Had another follow-up appointment for the infected abscess on my leg. I really am getting fed up with my doctor's office. I rarely get to see my actual doctor and every time I go in, I am seeing a new doctor and have to reexplain everything that's going on.

So, after explaining to this doctor about what's been going on with this abscess over the past three weeks, she examined it and agreed that it probably started from a bug bite. "I've seen this exact thing before, it started from a…
