"I'm actually kinda looking forward to this pen. I hope that it will make it easier for me to inject in a broader range of sites. I use Aetna mail order and I'm going to ask on my next order of Levemir pens if I can have the flextouch."

"Oh don't get me started. I have been in three of the major hospitals in Minneapolis and the db care was horrible across the board. So, I'e concluded that you just have to "suck it up" and hope the stay is a short one."

Cooler bedrooms could subtly transform a person’s stores of brown fat — what has lately come to be thought of as “good fat” — and consequently alter energy expenditure and metabolic health, even into daylight hours.Until recently, most scientists thought that adults had no brown…See More
