"The VA in Indiana does provide pump and supplies. You just need to have your primary care provider send you to see an Endocrinologist"

what to do with the iv3000 1-hand??????

I am a little lost here !!!1. first I Cleaned the site with the "I.V.Prep Antiseptic Wipe"2. then I put the ReliaMed "Protective Bafrrier Wipe" on the site3. In the past I then put the Inset on with the inserter.I now need to add "IV3000 1-Hand" into the equation. I am not sure which sequence it should go in, and should I cut a hole in the middle of it, so the needle can penetrate, or will the needle go thru the this material of the iv3000?I will cut a hole this time, and hopefully someone will…See More

A Big Time Low

Posted on September 28, 2009 at 11:58am 1 Comment

Ok, so on 9/26 i sat in the tv room, and started sweating a little and felt light headed, just sat and it went away, no problem. Then te children came to visit and we moved to the Front Porch and all sat to talk, when I began sweating a lot, and felt dizzy, so I simply said, I think i'll lay down for a while. I felt dizzy, felt terrible, stomach upset, room spinning and very, very tired. a while later I opened my eyes, and everything was blurry grey, so I got up and went into the tv room and… Continue

Why I want an Insulin Pump

Posted on April 10, 2009 at 6:25am 0 Comments

- I give myself a minmum of 4 shots a day

- My Glucose runs from 76 - 303

- I have a hard time predicting meal time, and giving my shots each day at the same time

- I suspect it is shocking my system when I give 42 Units of Lantus in the evening, instead of a slow release

- I have arthritis in my fingers and it is hard to use the syringe

- My eyesight is bad, hard to get the dosage right using a syringe

- When I get an air bubble in the syringe, it is fairly… Continue
