"Hey Lemonz, I feel off a lot but it is hard to know how much is related to the swings of bg up and down versus aging. I believe the #1 factor for aging is attitude. Feeling excited and appreciative keeps us young. Aside from attitude, I suspect the…"
"I think Dave nails it, you have carbs still digesting after the super quick Afrezza has cleared your system. You can try taking the Afrezza 15 min later but realistically you may need to implement you combo idea."
"Lol, "shares" is good way to change how we think of Afrezza. It has magic unlike a unit of subQ insulin. But as a stock share beware Afrezza is amazing but overall not magical. It can't act as a basal. If it could, the subQ insulin…"
"I look forward to your reports Terry as Afrezza may neutralize your "carb intolerance." I was thinking the other day an ironic effect of Afrezza is I would be less leery of eating junk if I know I won't suffer the spike."
"How people invest is their business but the results reported by Mike are impressive (and very likely true for others). The ability to mimic the post-meal bg patterns of non-diabetics is amazing. I am glad to see all the R&D pay off as…"
"55 lbs lost is an amazing feat. My wife lost a bunch and then hit a plateau that she never did break through. Maybe more exercise? Whatever you do, it isn't worth feeling bad about it. Diabetes is bad enough even without guilt trips."
It's very frustrating to say the least. Of course everyone is very helpful, I just got off the phone with a Omnipod rep, she's going to contact BCBS*** (ha! I love that) and see what she can do. Don't have a lot of hope. I was told by the DME people it's considered "disposable" but so are insulin pens and they're covered (I think!!) It's because they don't make enough money on the pods. The thing that infuriates me is that they don't cover CGM's!!!!!!!! What the h###ll! If ANYTHING should be covered it should be that. Now that I'm prepared to fight, we'll see how well I fight with "city hall"
Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog. My sugars have been really out of wack, and my mom isnt too happy about it xD But the shots are just like a feeling of relief. But i'm totally looking forward to an omnipod. :D
Hi and thankyou for your reply.The only problem is that I have been needing to test my nighttime basal and I can't have any active insulin in my body.I believe I already did try a combo bolus and didn't get good results.I'm just going to have to play with it I guess.
