I've been MDI (Lantus and Humalog) for 3 years, daily dose about 20 units. Well controlled (A1C 5.7), GAD negative, low c-pep, thin and moderately active. My endo has asked me to experiment with…Continue

Too good?

I was fortunate that, in spite of being 50, my primary doc diagnosed me as T1. Based on little more than my crazy high A1C, he referred me to an endocrinologist. I underwent the usual tests and was…Continue

"While I'm very interested in Afrezza, I agree with Trudy. Injected insulin can be highly effective with your post-prandial spikes. You wouldn't have to use much so the risk of hypos is less. You can use it now and try Afrezza when it comes…"

Lilli replied to Aimee's discussion 'FDA Afrezza press release'
"I hear you Trudy. I see my endo again this fall and plan to see if he'll try either afrezza or injections, I'm open to either. It seems he's just waiting for my BG to get worse before he'll let me try insulin. So far he keeps…"

"Hi Lilli. If it were me, I wouldn't wait for Afreeza--there isn't enough known about it right now. I'd try some fast-acting insulin, very conservatively at first, and see how that works. well, that's just me!"

Lilli replied to Aimee's discussion 'FDA Afrezza press release'

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!
