Heads up!! The TuDiabetes website will be momentarily affected by some performance-related maintenance today at 4PM Pacific Time (US). This could last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Thanks for your patience!

Dexcom transmitter life.

Started by Joe in Continuous Glucose Monitoring Forum. Last reply by Scott A 1 hour ago. 14 Replies

Is it a big secret that the Dexcom G4 transmitter is only guaranteed for 6 months? Mine has a dead battery after 11 months. On the Seven system I never had to replace a transmitter in 6 years. Tech support told me that the battery goes dead quicker…Continue

Pump and Airport Security

Started by Spock in Insulin Pump Users Forum. Last reply by artwoman 2 hours ago. 36 Replies

For years, I have requested a "search" to avoid walking through the body mage machine with my pump--Medtronic says no, so I don't. I dawned on me today that I always put my back up pump in my carryon, and it goes through Xray. Had to use it recently…Continue

Hi! Anyone feel like helping me think?I was diagnosed with Type 1 during TrialNet, but my A1c is 4.7 and I only have high BG during the OGTT. (Or if I eat a bunch of carbs all at once outside of the laboratory, but I don't really eat that kind of…Continue

How I keep track. *Useful tools

Posted by Austin Pereira on April 18, 2014 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Of all the things I have to do on a daily basis, now I have to add more things to the list; Checking my BG 8 times a day now, taking oral medications 3 times a day. Remembering to bolus before my meal, not right after. Remembering Dr. appointments etc.

On top of running a business and trying to keep sanity in my family, sometimes things get left out and keeping track is always a challenge. Fortunately I have a few tools that I like to use to keep me sane.

Number one;…

Tragic Tale

Tragic Tale



Last evening April 17, 2014, two officers were killed in a middle class neighborhood of Indianapolis. The two officers shared a particular life event that is common in the world. They were at one time married. I suppose the facts are really not necessary in a case like this. The police officers both veterans of the Indianapolis Police Department (IMPD) met on the…

Excitement, Excitement, Diacrap, Sadness and Dr. Lips

Posted by bagpipegirl on April 17, 2014 at 5:25pm 3 Comments

Excitement #1: tomorrow I have an appointment to start up my CGM. Fingers crossed that it will help to give me some insight with when my afternoon lows start so I can figure out the correct basal. I live alone so night time lows can be really nerve racking and I hope it will help me to wake up before I get to looooooooooooooow.

Excitement #2: right after my cgm appointment I am driving down to Maryland with my mom and oldest niece to…

Good news for me

Posted by Lloyd on April 17, 2014 at 11:54am 5 Comments

This is off topic, but good news I would like to share with friends. First, the background. In 1970 I injured my right shoulder. In 1980 I had Bristow surgery on it, where they shorten all the ligaments and do other things that restrict your motion, all with the purpose of keeping your shoulder from frequent dislocation.

That has been completely successful, but I now have osteoarthritis in that shoulder. I have been taking celebrex for years, and before that vioxx (now withdrawn from…
