"I must correct for protein all the time, not necessarily for fat. If I eat a steak and the carbs come in as zero, I will get slammed about 3 hours later with very high BG. Therefore I have a dual approach; Use an extended bolus like was mentioned…"
I have been using the Track 3 program on my iPhone quite successfully to count carbs for many foods, log everything, and to calculate insulin doses for my pump. It does NOT compensate for proteins, but is OK otherwise. There are many…"
"I have been using the G4 since late November and I really like it much better than the SevenPlus. However, I have also been having trouble with sensor failures. Out of 7 sensors I have used so far, 3 (three) have failed after 6 days. Perhaps a few…"
"I have been using Animas pumps and associated equipment for over 10 years and I personally HATE the OneTouch Ping tester! I really like the Ping pump, and I use the Dexcom G4 as well. But the Ping BG tester is terrible with its "2 button"…"

"My 2020 died in Hawaii several years ago. Found out later that it wasn't the battery cap but the rubber pad that covers the up/down arrows and the OK button. The rubber cement around it wears out and leaks. Why salt water leaks more is a more…"
Thanks for your friendliness. My control of this dreaded disease is not perfect and is never easy, but I have been at it for a long time and I do the best that I can .....within reason. I do indeed like mountain biking a lot, but…"
Yes, I have already contacted Joslin inquiring about their "half century" club. However, I had to do a good bit of digging into old archives to find my hospital records when my type 1 was diagnosed so long ago. I sent copies…"
"Howdy fellow long timer type 1's!
My name is Jack and I've had type 1 for over 54 years. I am currently using an Animas Ping with Humalog, Dexcom Seven Plus, OneTouch blood tester, and use EzManager to calculate my carbs and dosage. My…"

Hey Jack....top o' the morning to ya!!!
The main character in the cartoon is none other than Tintin (familiar with him???)
I'm returning to cycling after being off for a long while. My husband and I met in a ski/cycling club in our 20s and were very envolved in cycling here, there and everywhere (as well as downhill skiing, and tennis), well into our 30s.
So...now in my 50s and looking for a bike to suit my needs. Hope it's a good idea, I LOVE bike riding (cicling) but after many years of having done sports that are demanding on the knees....and many year of not having had the pleasure if cycling UP hills....well, I'm a little nervous. Any pointers (diabetes related or not)?
