Ingřid Glass replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'Those who have had laser for PDR' in the group Diabetics With Eye Problems
"Vit C is safe in large quantities, don't you just pee out any excess? Dunno about vit E. but high doses of any one thing could unbalance others, even if they're water soluble. Do you have access to a nutritionist/dietician? Could be worth…"

"Nooooo no no no not another bleed, that's awful. I know they often do wait n see before doing vitrectomies as there is always a small risk with any surgery or procedure, so I suppose if there is a slim chance it'll clear...? Fingers…"

Ingřid Glass commented on Regge's group 'Pumping Our Insulin'
"Hi, quick comment to say also that being on a pump can lead to weight increase by having better control - fewer high BGs as well as lows. I had much bigger swings on MDI, and when frequently high, it means you're not actually absorbing or using…"

Ingřid Glass replied to Siri's discussion 'How many days do you wear an infusion set with steel cannula?' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"And this says up to 6 days in reservoir for Novolog http://www.novologpro.com/prescribing/pump-therapy.aspx Oh, inconsistency reigns supreme! I think I'll stop googling now!! Happy set changes everyone whichever insulin you use and however…"

Ingřid Glass replied to Siri's discussion 'How many days do you wear an infusion set with steel cannula?' in the group Pumping Our Insulin

Ingřid Glass replied to Siri's discussion 'How many days do you wear an infusion set with steel cannula?' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"Hi Siri, Oh how interesting! Animas say 3 days for cartridge change, Roche say up to 6, but Eli Lilly say 2 days... I just wish they would be consistent with each other!! So confusing. I often use my cartridges for 6-7 days, and even up to 10 days…"

Ingřid Glass replied to Siri's discussion 'How many days do you wear an infusion set with steel cannula?' in the group Pumping Our Insulin

Ingřid Glass replied to Siri's discussion 'How many days do you wear an infusion set with steel cannula?' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"Hi Siri & others, I'm persuaded to try the steel cannulas and before I order them I'm trying to find out why the general recommendation is to change them every 1-2 days compared with every 2-3 days with the teflon sets. So this post is…"

Ingřid Glass replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'Those who have had laser for PDR' in the group Diabetics With Eye Problems
"Thanks for letting us know the update. I'd be upset as well as relieved but somehow you have to live with it :( and think long term that it will clear and improve. Still tough, I really feel for you. All best wishes to you Elizabeth. x"
