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…"

Andrea Wilkinson commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users'
"I had another thought, although it may be totally off base. I wondered if maybe you had developed slight gastroparesis so the food you do eat isn't getting absorbed like it used to? Just a thought... Hopefully using new reservoirs and sets will…"

"I know it is *very important* to keep a close eye on your kidney function tests! My mom's varied for 1 1/2 years, but ultimately, she required dialysis for 9 months. She got a transplant last year and her kidney function still varies--depending…"

Andrea Wilkinson replied to Lori Veliquette's discussion 'Skin Rash from Infusion Sets' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I am allergic to all the tapes, too. I have to use I.V. Prep first, then I put down a Tegaderm, then I use the Minimed Sof-set Ultimate QR, then I put the tape with the hole in the middle over the top of it all. If my set starts to come loose, I put…"

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?

Hi Andrea! I'm glad that you liked Budapest! I fell in love here with the language, the lifestyle, and most importantly my husband! I came here after finishing college in the USA and have been here since... Which means 4 of my 5 years as a diabetic. As of this year, I am in the Hungarian national health care system-- so I will start getting my pump supplies here with a 90% discount from the state. Until now I have imported my supplies in suitcases :) Even insulin. But as I am really settling here now, I have figured out how to get everything here, which is a relief. It is cheaper (because all is state subsidized), but at least a few steps behind the US market (pumps just emerged- medtronic, animas, and disentronic) and no sign of CGMS yet. So there is good and bad in everything!
