DEA commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Welcome, Mandy. I agree 100% with Joe_h on the running shop recommendation. Most good stores will be able to put you on a treadmill, analyze your gait, and put you in a shoe that will work for you. Plan on replacing shoes every 300-500 miles or so.…"

DEA replied to ajbaum's discussion 'Race Registration Season' in the group Diabetics who run Marathons!
"I signed up for the Wine and Dine Half at Walt Disney World (Early November), but I'm still shopping around for a marathon to run this year. Oh, and there's a 5K in our neighborhood that I will probably do, but I think I can sign up for…"

"MAS -- Where are you wearing the transmitter? I've been using it on my arms (with the receiver attached to my waistband) and have not had trouble, even with more layers in the winter. I also keep the receiver on the same side as the…"

DEA replied to ajbaum's discussion 'Couple Questions as I'm considering OmniPod' in the group OmniPod Users
"It's been a few weeks now. Long enough that it's not at the forefront of my thoughts. Congratulations on our first marathon, btw. I was also happy that my pods made it through the entire Dopey Challenge at Walt Disney World last month.…"

DEA replied to ajbaum's discussion 'Couple Questions as I'm considering OmniPod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have not been able to track down the reason, no. It has only happened to me with the new pods. I wear them on my abdomen, and it has happened both with standard tech shirts (for which the static idea is somewhat plausible) and with natural fiber…"

DEA replied to ajbaum's discussion 'Couple Questions as I'm considering OmniPod' in the group OmniPod Users
"For runs where I do take the PDM, I generally just put it in a plastic bag and stick it into my back zip pocket. I am, at this moment, trying to track down a belt-clip solution for it and my Dexcom G4. The Dexcom has one already, but I need…"

DEA replied to ajbaum's discussion 'Couple Questions as I'm considering OmniPod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've had a few pods fail while I was running. It's hasn't been every time I've run, but every time I've had a failure, it's been while running. I don't normally carry the PDM with me unless I'm going 10 miles…"

"Tatiana: Honestly, NPH insulin caused me to stop running for years due to crashing hard during races. As for your plan to skip Lantus, I think the only way it will work is to inject some shorter-acting insulin to cover you through the race, as…"

DEA commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Hi Folks. After hanging out on this group for a while, I finally became a Diabetic Who Ran a Marathon on Sunday. I finished up the Dopey Challenge (5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon on 4 consecutive days) at Walt Disney World and lived to tell the…"

"I like the Honey Stinger chews because they don't have a lot of additives and the honey is a little easier to digest than other forms of sugar."

DEA commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"jfreeman18 -- You probably already know that socks that wick very well and shoes that fit properly and are suited you your gait (stability for overpronation, etc.) are the primary pieces of gear that you'll need. Over 13 miles, they get even…"

DEA commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"The dropoff around the 7-mile mark is pretty consistent. One other thing I forgot to mention is that my digestive system pretty much shuts down while running, so if I do ingest anything more complex than Honey Stingers, it isn't going to hit my…"

DEA commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Hi Caroline, Nothing that severe, but I did run a 10K that sent me on a steep gain about 20 minutes after I was done. I chalk it up to your body continuing to raid your glycogen stores as your muscles stop burning fuel because you're done…"

DEA replied to Schmutz's discussion 'Humalog vs NovoLog' in the group OmniPod Users
"I went the opposite direction, from Humalog to Novolog, and my experience suggests that the Novolog might act slightly faster for me, which is good if I'm reactively bolusing. Otherwise, I'm not seeing much of a difference in terms of…"

DEA commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Great job on your marathon, illinoisrunner, and great that you were able to manage your BG so well for the whole route. And great job, Chrissy! You'll find that finish line can get pretty addictive."

DEA replied to Annette's discussion 'Diabetes.....this is B*** S***'
"And feeling at 120 is probably going to keep happening until your body adjusts to lower blood sugars. It works the same way for people who are at 70 all the time and don't feel lows until they get into the 30s, and that can be dangerous,…"
