Hi everyone. My name is Cora and I was diagnosed with type 1 in 1966. My Mom was the one who made the diagnosis. I was getting hysterical before going to be if I couldn't get a drink of water and…Continue

Cora commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Elsa, the KP transplant is actually not that iffy any more. Not by a long shot. I am a PAK (pancreas after kidney) and my new pancreas is now 6 years old. While I don't play statistical games, I do appreciate the fact that the…"

Cora replied to pixierun13's discussion 'And on the other hand, we have a different BGL'
"Hi Pixie. Sigh. The only thing that multiple testing will do is drive you crazy and waste test strips. What I would do, is take your 2 meters to the lab whenever you go. Do this a few times. Then you will know which bg meter (cgms have more…"

Cora replied to A. Barney's discussion 'T1 Livabetik T2 Diabetic'
"Sorry, but I don't really agree. They changed the name from "Juvenile" to "Type 1" so that people wouldn't think that only kids get it. Did that work? Nope! And changing it to "Liveabetic" would just confuse…"

Cora replied to Eucritta's discussion 'Other Than the Obvious, What Causes Drops in Blood Glucose?'
"Well, for me the heat thing raises me. Cold drops me down. But the biggie for me, especially when I was younger, was my emotions. Very happy (4 years old and Santa was coming!!!) and I'd drop like a rock. Even as an adult, I dropped to 2.4…"

Cora replied to Sportster's discussion 'Exercise Confusion'
"That depends on whether or not you are one of those people who's bg goes down after exercise. Many of us have it go up. I would suggest blowing some test strips and do some experimenting on what works for you. Sorry I can't be more…"

Cora replied to lh378's discussion 'insulin dosage adjustments'
"I agree. I have found that the term "stacking" is used far too liberally by many (docs/nurses especially). It's only stacking when you take more insulin to bring down glucose levels when there is still insulin working to bring it…"

Cora replied to Cara's discussion 'Sliding scale'
"You've gotten good info from other posters. I haven't used sliding scale in a very long time (actually, in the last century I think). The sad truth is that there are still a lot of docs that have their patients use the sliding scale, when…"

Cora replied to B's discussion 'Anyone from Montreal?' in the group Canada Diabetes
"I was originally from Montreal and went to camp carowanis. I know a few folks on facebook who belong to the camp group and have gotten some good pumping advice and other info - and many of us are campers from the 70s so it's not just kids."
Aug 2
Cora replied to Spock's discussion 'Isn't Juvenile Diabetes an Antiquated term?'
"While yes, the term "juvenile" is antiquated, the JDRF does not discourage it's use. Simply because charities and organizations that raise money "for the kids" get a lot more of people's pocketbooks. It's the fund…"

Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'First-Ever ADA Guidance Specifically for Type 1 Diabetes'
"I can't find the reference right now, but between 5 and 10 years ago the CDC came out with a report suggesting that about 50% of the T1 diagnoses were in adults. I'll keep looking."

Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'First-Ever ADA Guidance Specifically for Type 1 Diabetes'
"I did that nel, but when you put in "adult with D", no matter what else you put in at the end it actually calls you a T2. Or at least it did for me. But I did find the guidelines made sense as I tried various combinations and the more…"

Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'First-Ever ADA Guidance Specifically for Type 1 Diabetes'
"I went through it, and in the conclusions it actually said I was a T2 because I said I was an adult with D. But I tried various combinations and if you are frail, or subject to severe hypos, or are hypo unaware, or a few other things it sets a…"
Jul 5
Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'First-Ever ADA Guidance Specifically for Type 1 Diabetes'
"The guidelines asks good questions (I tried it out), but there are some glitches. If you put in "adult with diabetes" it assumes T2. If you try to correct, it only gives guidelines for kids and then asks the age. As often happens, they…"
Jul 5
Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'First-Ever ADA Guidance Specifically for Type 1 Diabetes'
"My guess is that there are now adult, established, professional (and rich) T1s on the ADA board of directors or somewhere that supplies their funding. Now that's an incentive!"

Cora commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"He Melinda. I was dxd in 1966. In my day (when I was finally old enough to do the test) clinitest had evolved to 2 drops of urine to 10 drops of water. And yup, there was a several hour delay between urine and blood as it takes that long for the…"
