"I would absolutely recommend it. I do P90x3 with it on me and no problems.
I think if you could average the reviews of it, most people would recommend it. It's hard to judge otherwise.
How do you like Joslin? That's neat that you have…"
"I am getting my first pump. At first I dismissed the idea of getting the Omnipod because of some bad reviews, but my endrocrinoligist at Joslins said her patients love it. I am very active with working out and I was wondering if you would recommend…"
"Hey, thanks Cyclinglady. I was tested for any gluten issues when I had an edoscopy last year. So no go there.
No real telling what's happening, but does seem to me like an overactive immune system, plus allergies and three small kids in the…"
"Both my husband and I gluten intolerant (celiac disease). My symptom was anemia, but my husband's was chronic sinus infections/snoring. He has been GF for 13 years and had never had a sinus infection since. There are over 300 symptoms for…"
"OK Karen, I'm stealing your regimen with a couple tweaks:
-Neilmed rinse in the a.m. with distilled water -24 hour allegra
-Advil Cold & Sinus (had some on hand, might switch to sudafed soon and see how that goes.)
I'll report back in…"
"Nobody should be afraid to speak their mind here. Glad to hear what you're going through and your opinions about it. It's a fact that the recommendations I had for decades did me little good, where the understanding of a great educator…"
"I hear you. At a meal, fruit is a replacement for me, not something I'd have along with bread. And, of course, if you need/want to there's always a way to nail that down with some research and extending the bolus."
"You know, once you figure that out, like pizza or other trigger foods, you can do a square bolus and get it straight. I'm sure your doc (or better yet diabetes educator or local pump expert) can help you with that. If I'm eating something…"
"I'm going to try this. And allergy shots.
I just get confused about anti-histamines. The doctors always say it dries you up and what you need is to drain or the infection starts/won't go away and there's more risk of ear infections…"
People in this community are using the Glucosurfer freqeuently and infrequently but I wish I could motivate more to do so. Although our project allows full anonymity it may be problematic to post a link under a user account in a social community. I think people still fear to be identified by their photo etc. Thus I am offering to speak on behalf of our users in this community. This way someone could seek help and share their diary and the real identity will not be revealed to the public.
The CGMS data available on the Glucosurfer main page (Demo 3) can be a little frustrating. This user has good control but the tendency of going low should be considered too. This is reflected by a considerably high ADRR value in the Diagram 'Glucose - Proportional Trend - Statistics'. The ADRR is a risk indicator for the deviation of the blood glucose. It sets the achieved level of control in contrast to the deviation. Thus good control paired with a good ADRR is something I try to achieve.
