CJ replied to FionaT1's discussion 'The Beach' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"Perhaps there's a way to contact the manufacture or you tube it for a demo on dismantling and cleaning it out with brushes or possibly applying some air pressure to it? Just Saying."

CJ replied to Cocheze's discussion 'More Active Without A Pump?' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"The problem I ran into with injections is you can't take away what you don't use when it comes to insulin. With a pump you can delay delivery, therefore avoiding the chance of a low. I didn't like the fact that I couldn't push…"

"I sometimes notice some very slight liquid around my flex pens (novolog and Levemir. It's been happening for some time now and I'm thinking it's affecting my dosage and blood sugar levels, does any one else have this problem. The…"

ash-harris replied to CJ's discussion 'Lantus: I'm pretty lost right now..what would U do?' in the group LANTUS® Or Humalog Users
"Hello CJ, I've been diabetic for 13 years and just taken the DAFNE course, patly as I had also been having hypos early in the mornings and was told to split my Lantus. The course teaches that Lantus will last for about 12hrs and that it takes…"

"I am now up to 36 units in the morning (07.00), my am BG is looking a lot better but at around 11.00 I start feeling as if I am going into a daydream. I have sussed that this for me is the beginning of a hypo. I just eat a small ham or cheese…"

Andy Taylor replied to CJ's discussion 'Lantus: I'm pretty lost right now..what would U do?' in the group LANTUS® Or Humalog Users
"Ugh. I use 60 units of Lantus. Once. In the evening before bed. And Humalog for eats and spikes. Again. Ugh."

Dave replied to CJ's discussion 'Can't Believe the Improvement in my Blood Sugars!' in the group LANTUS® Or Humalog Users
"I completely understand. Despite being a geek, it was all quite overwhelming at first. There's so much to understand, so many variable to account for, knobs to turn and tweak. Type 1 or 2, basal insulin should keep you stable while your…"

CJ replied to CJ's discussion 'Can't Believe the Improvement in my Blood Sugars!' in the group LANTUS® Or Humalog Users
"The major changes/improvements for me are 1) When I go low I don't feel like the back of my head is going to blow up and I'm not shoving candy or slugging orange juice for fear of loosing consciousness and 2) For the first time ever,…"

Dave replied to CJ's discussion 'Can't Believe the Improvement in my Blood Sugars!' in the group LANTUS® Or Humalog Users
"This sounds, again, like your personal duration of efficacy is <24h. And, as you've experience, simply upping the single 24 hour dose doesn't solve the problem, but instead results in too much up front, not enough later. Keep in mind…"

DaveMH replied to CJ's discussion 'Can't Believe the Improvement in my Blood Sugars!' in the group LANTUS® Or Humalog Users
"I am taking a great interest in this. Only recently my T2 tablets was changed to Lantus. I started at the doctors advice with 10 units and then depending on morning BG increase or decrease by 2 units every other day. I am now injecting 36 units in…"
