Very simple, just post ONE WORD that is somehow associated with the previous word. Easy right?(Diabetes related words welcome but not necessary!!)OK...first word: sugarContinue
My PCP sent me to the emergency room last week. I was wondering how other ERs care for Type 1 patients - especially when the apparent reason for the ER visit is not related to diabetes. Do they test BG? How often? Do you get water? Does anyone…Continue
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

Last time I saw the doctor, my Levemir was changed to 18 units. After reading a recommendation to inject in the stomach, I changed from my thighs to my stomach. After about 3 days, I started seeing changes in my fasting BG. After waiting several more days to see if I would have a spike in the evening, I found that I was doing a lot better all day.
