Please note: the exchange, sale or giveaway of items between members that require a prescription from a licensed practitioner, including insulin pumps and pump supplies, is not allowed on TuDiabetes.

We encourage you to donate supplies to non-profits such as the Charles Ray III Diabetes Association and Insulin for Life, which accept insulin pumps and pump supplies (as well as other diabetes-related prescription items).

You can also approach your physician's office or local medical groups to discuss donating them to those in need of assistance in your area.

@dishers Any chance you might have a bad bottle of insulin? That's possible. Or just a strange hormonal day. Keep trying. And if the insulin is fast acting it should be out of your system in 6 - 8 hours so be aware of your dosing but don't worry too much.

I have been struggling all day with high sugars, started this morning at 12.2 and has been between 10 and 14 all day, so drained and headache, have not eaten a hole lot today, apples and chicken for supper. Changed my pod around 10 am. Have taken a shot to bring it down. Never experienced not being able to bring my sugars down before, worried if I keep trying I'm going to over dose with insulin lol. Anyone know why or had this experience? Any ideas?

Good for you, fishers. Question: are you using recalled strips or the new ones(exp date > 08/2015)?

Comment by dishers on March 17, 2014 at 3:46pm

I did it again and 17 gave me 5.3

Makes spence thanks again Hank

Better to be middle, so your actual reading should be what your BS actually is. I think they use the range because all meters are not created equal. I found on PDM with the recalled strips that I coded 17 to get the reading that agreed with my Freedom meter and midrange on control solution. I have not used the replacement strips yet, so I don't know what the code will be.

Comment by dishers on March 17, 2014 at 1:37pm

Thanks Hank, I am curious thought why the middle?

Comment by Hank Barnes on March 17, 2014 at 1:06pm

dishers,
I think I would opt to have a more in the middle reading, 5.2. you may need to change code(try 17). if you have another meter, you can compare a little better. others may have better opinions. hank

Comment by dishers on March 17, 2014 at 12:58pm
Hi ok I got the control solution and tested it. Said 4.4 bottle says between 4.2-6.3 so code 16 would be correct right? Bit confused how people are comfortable with their readings at different code numbers trying to figure it out. Some help please. Lol
