Where do you hide your insulin pump?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rach Sep 5, 2012. 17 Replies

I love my pump. I don't like using the term "hide" because that would mean I am ashamed of it in my opinion. But I guess an insulin pump doesn't quite go with every outfit. Where do you stash your…Continue

Thanksgiving Prep

It’s Thankgiving week. This used to be one of my favorite holidays because it was the one time out of the entire year where you could eat whatever your heart desired and no one said a thing. That was until I became diabetic. Now, during this old favorite holiday people comment on how much I’m eating or give me a look. For those of you who are still going through the emotions of this holiday, I want to give you some encouragement, that you are not alone, and some tips on how to give yourself…See More

Holger Schmeken commented on Dkinsey's blog post 'Have You Heard of Symlin?'
"I think Symlin was introduced to the US market before 2009. It is synthetic amylin that is part of the natural insulin production we have lost. It can help to reduce after meal spikes by slowing the digestion down. But the right dosage is hard to…"

Have You Heard of Symlin?

I am hearing a lot about this new drug for diabetics called Symlin. I first heard about it from one of my diabuddies, but wasn’t sure of how I felt about it right away. Then we had another group meeting and another diabetic is now going to go on Symlin. I decided to look more into it. Apparently, this new drug helps you to gain better control of your glucose levels and also helps the promotion of weight loss....…See More
