"Hi, What you are doing doesn't sound good to me. Are you taking BOTH NovoRapid AND Actrapid? Nothing else? You are basically taking 2 types of fast acting insulin. One is much faster working than the other. You should take NovoRapid (for meals)…"

"Hi Jonah. Excellent question. That was one of the first things that I did when I got blood testing strips in the early 80's. Meters we're not common then. Amazingly, I found that 180 mg/dl was my threshold when sugar started appearing in…"

Hi Ken, thanks for your guidance. I have been monitoring my blood glucose levels. Fasting levels are in 120's regularly - 129, 123, 131, 128, 126, 122, etc. HbA1C - 7.1 %. I have also got the C-Peptide test and the value is - 3.54 ng/ml (normal range 1.1 - 4.4 ng/ml). Looks like I am inching close to being a Type1, what do you say? What kind of steps do I need to take?

Hi Ken,
Thanks very much on the information regarding Type 1.5 LADA. I will mostly schedule a C-peptide test soon as consult my Endocrinologist.

Hello Ken, what are the signs of Type 1.5 LADA? How to evaluate? Did you guess the same using my HBA1C results? Thanks.

Hi Ken, Thanks for the information on the reunion dates. May is a lovely month for Boston. I am looking forward to finding out more about what the program will be for us. I live 25 miles from Joslin now, but I guess that wouldn't qualify me for a hotel stay!! You mentioned that you took the Boston public transportation system around the area. I used it instead of a car until after grad school. I know alot of Boston trivia and can tell you where the "Charley Card," which is your ticket, got it's name.(Not telling now)
Have a good weekend.
Stephanie

Posted on May 24, 2012 at 7:56pm 2 Comments

Hi all of you North Easterners,

I will be in Boston on May 27th (Sunday) - 30th (Wed) to be a lab rat at the Joslin Clinic for my 50+ year study. If anyone is around and would like to meet up and talk about the "good ole days" let me know! I will treat you to some coffee and donuts....

....or maybe some Garbanzo beans and a salad.... :)

Shoot me a message if you are interested.

Thank you! Ken
