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
Hi AllI will be moving back to the uk in three weeks after being in NZ, I have an animas vibe pump but they don't fund the CGM here, just wondering if the nhs fund this.ThanksContinue
In the last month or so a petition was offered by two D-moms that proposed adopting separate names for T1 and T2 diabetes. I'm not here to rehash that argument. While I found myself in a decided minority position in this argument, I believed in the…Continue
Diabetes Health online magazine has an Interview with Dr Bernstein about his views on Insulin Pump Therapy. I couldn't believe what he said, basically that all those he interviewed had worse A1C results on the pump than off it. Mainly due to scar…Continue
So I used to receive my shipment of pods, lancets, and test strips on the 13th of every month. Then it went to the 15th. I get a call on the 11th saying how Abbott the company that makes the test strips I use for my meter, is no longer going to make them. So they have to send me a new meter.

I'm not your typical candidate for diabetes as my Endocrinologist told me. I was not over weight and I ate pretty…Continue
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.(Albert Einstein)
OK, it is official I am insane. Because every single morning I do the same thing. Get up, check the dexcom, check my blood sugar and take some insulin and every single day I expect a different result. Did I play racquetball or swim the night before ? Did I eat in a restaurant ? Did I go high or low in the wee hours of the morning and have to do something about it? What PWD do every day…
