Hello Everyone,I have been on a pump for 16 years, since I was 13 years old and was at my endo today and she recommended a pump vacation. Well, she recommended I try MDI - as it wasn't available when I went on a pump all those years ago. I will be…Continue
I've been a diabetic for almost 30 years, on insulin for 1 year. This will be a bit long, so thanks for your patience!My father has been here since April on an extended visit. His BG was spiking really high, into 300s and 400s. He is taking 50 units…Continue
I went to the doctor today and after a two hour appointment I was told that I was not going to be given a prescription for Insulin. Yikes. It was because I was Type 1. "We don't treat that. You need a consult to an Endo. How about Septemeber?" Run…Continue

So guys this is like a lyrics parody about diabetes of the song heart attack by DeMI LOVATO if you know her, so here are the lyrics:

But when it comes to you, I’m never good enough
When I don’t…Continue
I originally posted this to my Blogger account (TamraGarcia.blogspot.com) on Feb 20, 2014.
On February 18th I had the first of , hopefully, only three eye surgeries. These surgeries are meant to help clean up and prevent more damage from Diabetic Retinopathy.

In June I got my prescribed 10 test strips per day which equals 300/month. I'm a type 1 diabetic and I test my blood sugar 8-12 times per day because I'm active (I run marathons) and I drive a company car and do NOT want to go low and get in a car accident. So to protect my employer from liability I perform multiple blood sugar checks.
On July 19th I find out that I am now limited to 6 test strips per day! Because of the ACA!! My pharmacist and I are getting a medical pre…Continue
