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 replied to Rich's discussion 'Preventative shots so kids don't develop type 1.'
"Again, I wasn't critiquing, or discussing the trial itself. I was talking about how so many people, who haven't been around our "industry" that long, often get their hopes raised by overly optimistic representations of current,…"

Cora replied to Rich's discussion 'Preventative shots so kids don't develop type 1.'
"I wasn't talking about the trial Rick. I was talking about the JDRF posting as though it currently works and is available. That's what Tim and I were discussing. At that point in the conversation, the trial had not yet been mentioned.…"

Cora replied to Rich's discussion 'Preventative shots so kids don't develop type 1.'
"Remember when the Edmonton Protocol made it's big breakthrough in 2000? They claimed that within a few years islet cell transplants would be available to all T1s who wanted them. And here we are, 15 years later. How many with islets do you…"

Cora replied to Rich's discussion 'Preventative shots so kids don't develop type 1.'
"You're right Tim. It's one of those "just think if this was possible" kinds of stories. It reminds me of a stupid controversy in Ottawa regarding the Experimental Farm. They decided to no longer give the cows "people"…"

Cora replied to Rich's discussion 'Preventative shots so kids don't develop type 1.'
"Hmmm. Not buying it. I know they have determined that the development of T1 involves somewhere between 18 and 23 genes. And at this point in technology, I don't believe there is such a thing as a vaccine to prevent a genetic disorder. I had a…"

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…"

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…"

Cora replied to elizabetta's discussion 'Type I Diabetes and Acupuncture'
"I've had it for a number of different issues. While my bg was affected, I believe it had more to do with the proper treatment and alleviation of my issues (pain, gastric distress, etc). I think it's really difficult to separate whether the…"

Cora replied to Don's discussion 'do insurance companies pressure docs?'
"If you only see the doc once per year, how do you get a1cs done regularly? Or do you? Yes, I did a lot of individual testing, but regular a1cs are also a good tool to see how you are doing."

Cora replied to LeeAnneL.'s discussion 'I think my new doctor thinks I'm Type 2!!'
"I'm so sorry you are going through this. Best of luck finding a good doc. I have one and I'm really happy. Unfortunately, there are boneheads everywhere and it's going to continue for you. Many docs still think of T1 as…"

Cora replied to anthill's discussion 'Maybe??'
"I hear this a lot. How many people nowadays, what with twitter, facebook, instagram and whatever else is on the horizon, are actually capable of keeping a secret? Even those who sign oaths and are paid to keep secrets do not. There's the wife…"

Cora replied to Sandy's discussion 'How long do you go between infusion set and sensor changes?'
"I've also never used sensors, but as for changing insertion sites, it will depend in part on how much insulin you take. I often left it for 4 or 5 days (but not always) but I usually only took about 20 or so units per day. I think if you take a…"
