World Diabetes Day and the DOC

It's strange to think a year ago I had no idea about the huge thing that is the diabetic online community (DOC), I was all alone in the world of diabetes with no one to listen to and figure out issues that I was having. Then I started thinking about going onto an insulin pump, and I researched it to DEATH, I had to know every single teeny tiny bit of information about insulin pumps and how they work, whilst doing this I came across a website called Tu Diabetes and that opened up the whole world…See More

I have a job...

Check out my blog and my most latest post about working...I haven't really had a 'proper' job before, and by that I mean I had a small amount casual work at my parents business which I don't count as a proper job as I didn't have to do a lot of work to get it and I also didn't have any regular hours as such. So now I have a job in the Christmas department of a garden centre which is lets not lie pretty boring but also raises a few questions in terms of working and diabetes...…See More

Ahh yeah, I wish mine was properly waterproof (copes with rain etc), but it's quite nice to take it off when I shower etc. I guess you have to choose what suits you best. I'm really surprised at how robust mine has been, been bashed and dropped etc and is still going!

No worries, hope you had a nice time :) I didn't get a choice, that is what Sheffield children's hospital decided is best and supply to the majority of their patients. Though looking around (I'm due for a replacement in October), it seems one I'd have picked anyway, got a big cartridge, simple to use and is quite light too :) what made you pick the one you are getting?

The only thing with the pump is adjusting your ratio's to match. I was told you're normally more reactive to insulin through a pump (don't know how true this is nationwide say), but I certainly was, my background total was almost half of what I was having in glargine, but it took a few months, and lots of fasting and night time tests to make sure I was happy! xx

I think it's just a case of practice makes almost perfect! haha. I've got to a point now where I'm just like 'I'll have that much insulin for *insert whatever i've just eaten*'. My consultant tells me off and tells me I should still be counting all my carbs etc but for me now it'd be too much hassle, with lectures and stuff especially, and as I said to him, my HbA1c is rarely above 7, so I'm obviously doing something right :) xx

I started when I was 13 I think, I did one of the trial runs for the course now called kick-off, which is aimed at younge children, so that will have been in 2005 (I was diagnosed may 2000). Last summer I did the trial run of a course called WICKED, which is a mix of kick-off and Dafne and aimed at teenagers. I found a lot was what I learnt in the first trial I did, and had practised/learnt over the years of doing it, but was still nice to have a recap and it approached things a teenager may come across in life too, so I'd suggest doing that if you get chance! :) also the book called 'carbs and cals' I think, is useful, we were provided with one on the course and it's amazing! Tells you carbs in loads of different portions of food and gives you different portion sizes for each, which is useful :) xx

Ahh, haha, yeah, must have been chaos! This is the first new one I've had for years, I know my old one was from the Children's Hospital in Sheffield, and I've not been there for almost 4 years! Haha. Yeah, though my dad spoke to one of the stewardesses, and they let me do it in their kitcheny bit where they sort all the meals and stuff, they even pulled the curtains across for me! :) Injecting around the turbulence was always interesting though...xx

I put everything in my handluggage through the x-ray just not my pump, and all the insulin that's been in there has been okay :) i can't remember whether I took it off or not on the plane though. I have a feeling I left it on, but yeah, I remember flying quite a few times, the trips to America were worst cos I had to inject after the meal, always interesting on a plane! haha. I think as long as you have a decent customs letter (mine mentioned I was on a pump too), then you should be okay :) xx

Blog about treatments.

Posted on September 4, 2012 at 1:30pm 2 Comments

Hi Guys,

I recently starting blogging about my diabetes here

My most recent post was about how I treat my diabetes:

The first thing that I use and can not even leave the house without (I am very attached to it - maybe too much!?) is my BG tester, I am currently using the Accu-chec mobile which is awesome as everything is all in one little machine that is just bigger than the size of a mobile phone.…
