JackSprat999 replied to Aussie's discussion 'Fatty Foods, Insulin and going High' in the group Dexcom Users
"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…"

"Hallo Louis, 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…"

JackSprat999 commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"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 reply. At the moment, I use CGM. As you know this comes with sensors 1 per week. Does the pump come with such a replaceable parts that cost as much?

I am impressed by how long youve been diabetic. I ve been for around 15years. What can you say is the benefits of pumps. i ve never had one and i feel ok w/out a pump (i think). Will you say that i am missing out if i dont have a pump? Willl be glad to hear from you

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)?
