Amy replied to meee's discussion 'Hiking: How do you manage your bg during moderate hikes?'
"I put my basal to -60% for at least an hour before I start hiking and I aim to have a blood sugar of 150ish when I start. This has worked pretty well for me on some moderately difficult hikes but I also monitor my dexcom pretty closely and carry a…"

Amy replied to Tamra's discussion 'Dreams'
"Once I dreamed I was eating something, woke up enough to bolus, and went back to sleep. I was so mad at myself when I woke up to my CGM low alert... Otherwise I can't think of any specifically diabetic dreams that I've had."

Amy replied to artwoman's discussion 'WEARING INFUSION SET ON THIGS, - HOW DO YOU COVER IT?'
"Tegaderm is good, I hear. It's what my CDE and endo recommend for sites under jeans. I don't use anything as my jeans aren't super tight, but every now and again I wish I did.."

Amy replied to Denise's discussion 'Target blood glucose ranges'
"When I was diagnosed 15 years ago, I was told 70-120. A friend diagnosed at the same time was told that no, it was 75-125..because, you know, 5 points makes a difference... Now, my doctors seem to want me to keep it a bit higher. They seem to get…"

Amy replied to Denise's discussion 'Coffee and Blood Sugars'
"Black coffee makes my sugars rise as well, but I just take extra bolus for it. I worked in coffee for a while, so I have my "coffee boluses" down. It took mostly trial and error, but now I can drink anything! :P It just takes time and…"

Amy replied to Daisy Mae's discussion 'frustrations and trouble with Dexcom CGM'
"Usually I calibrate and wait. Admittedly, I don't get many ??? and when I do get those I usually just change my sensor. Also, I would check on your transmitter battery. From what I've experienced, as the battery starts to go so does the…"

Amy replied to Daisy Mae's discussion 'snacking between meal boluses and insulin on board'
"Unfortunately, I don't have a simple yes or no answer for you. I'd say yes...mostly. I take a lot of things into consideration if I'm "snacking" or grabbing a coffee or doing anything that requires a change in my insulin.…"

Amy replied to irrational John's discussion 'What is in your backup kit and what do you pack/carry it in?'

Amy replied to Tamra's discussion 'Antibody Negative Type 1'
"I've always thought that the antibodies can go away over time, though I really have no idea. I went through a thing in my early 20s where I was convinced I was only diagnosed type 1 because I was white (my much fitter roommate in the hospital…"

Amy replied to Raven Hughes's discussion 'healthy snack ideas?'
"I eat pickles by the jar full :P I kid - kind of. I really do love pickles for when I'm feeling snacky. Olives, too. Maybe a bit of cheese."
