Andrea Wilkinson commented on Bernard's group 'Continuous Glucose Monitor Users'
"I have not used the new sensor but was told the new one is similar to the old one for calibration. When I wore the old sensors, I found the best trick was to insert the sensor at night and calibrating it in the morning. This gave the sensor plenty…"

Andrea Wilkinson replied to jlw62987's discussion 'Pump does nothing against highs' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"If my blood sugar is 300+, I usually take an injection because bolusing through the pump takes so long and I don't want to wait... I know I have scar tissue from shots and the pump. I've been experimenting with using the top of my outer…"

No, it was not too much detail at all. I enjoyed the read. I don't think you had anything to do with what your son is experiencing. I think both of those are hereditary, diabetic or not. I work for the best allergist/immunologist~wish you were a little closer so your son could see him. Many of his patients are asthmatic and all sing his praises. As far as the acid reducer, I am on Protonix (and Reglan) for gastroparesis (neuropathy of the digestive system) and it is the best I've tried.
Thanks so much for the encouragement and advice! Talk to you soon. K

Hey Andrea, I see that you and I were dx about 2 months apart. I'm just wondering if you have kids and how that went. I want to but am afraid. Any advice?
