I am on the Minimed Paradigm, and the protective tape that you put on over the sensor and transmitter keeps coming off very easily. I know that it's probably from the heat and humidity, but I was wondering if anyone has an idea to keep the tape on…Continue

I confessed earlier to being a thought hoarder. And with T1D, or any diabetes for that matter, thought hoarding makes less room for details, and details are what can make our diabetic lives stable or unstable.

Although some of us rely heavily on medical technology for some…Continue
