I don't really know what it means that an endo office "doesn't support" a pump. I would contact Animas itself and they will hook you up with a trainer in your area. Supplies are done by UPS so it doesn't matter where you are in the country.

Anyone use Tubeguard??? I found it one day while searching the corners of the internet after my toddlers foot got caught in my pump tubing and wondered if there was anything out there to organize insulin pump tubing. I cam across this but, never heard of it before. Then again I have only been pumping for 2.5 years..... I am looking for feedback to avaoid being a tripwire for a toddler, yo yo for my pump and catch all for dressers and doorknobs.....

I added some cool pump tunes over on the Animas classic tunes page, in case anyone is interested!

I really think that the only thing that needs changing is my carb ratio because I'm typically highest when I eat.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 14, 2014 at 9:45pm

I don't do it on purpose. I am working on it. I just started seeing a doctor for it. I love my educator. My endo is good but I can't understand her through her accent. :( They said it will take time and it's different for everyone. I don't feel comfortable tweaking it by myself yet but I will. I also just started using the dexcom as well.

You really want to get your numbers down, Nichole; staying in the range of 250 on a regular basis is a set-up for complications! Do you have a good endo and/or cde to work with? Three months should be enough time to get your pump doses tweaked. I encourage you to read Pumping Insulin by John Walsh so you can learn to tweak your own doses.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 14, 2014 at 9:30pm

I was doing alright on the insulin pen but since I have been on the pump it's been a while finding the perfect dosages. I've only had it three months and I know it takes time to get it just right.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 14, 2014 at 9:25pm

I don't know I was diagnosed as a kid. I also typically have glucose levels over 250.

Comment by Zoe on April 12, 2014 at 10:31pm

I was just wondering how they determined you were Type 1, since your insulin resistance sounds more like type 2.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 12, 2014 at 9:09pm

I'm not sure about the antibodies but I go back in two months so I will ask about that. And thank you!!
