nursing and high blood sugar

Hey all!I have a 5 mo girl and I am still nursing. I have been trying to research if high blood sugar affects the baby at all. I haven't see anything really. I thought I might ask here to see if anyone had thoughts or their endo had chimed in. The only thing I think is happening is she is gaining weight quicker. She is still within range for her age which is good. Just wondering, thanks!JamieSee More

safety first

My mother would be proud. I have been thinking for a while now about getting a Medical ID bracelet. I am sure that everyone can understand why I have not done this yet. Medical ID bracelets are not looked at as cool and they are generally pretty ugly. But they serve a good purpose. If something ever happened to me where I was unconscious and could not communicate I would need someone or something else to speak for me. And now that I am on an Insulin pump I felt like it was even more important.… Continue

3 boxes of juice on the bar... you take one down pass it around...

Posted on May 21, 2009 at 9:30am 1 Comment

Today I am really hating diabetes. Last night as I was about to brush my teeth I thought, I should check my sugar now because if I don't I am going to go low and have to drink juice. As I was walking over to my night stand I started to feel that all to familiar feeling. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...37. What the crap? Drank some juice and sat on the bed. Then it hit me, the sweat, the weak feeling, and the inability to think straight. 10 minutes later I retested at 32. What????!!!?? More juice and a half a… Continue

starting down the pump road...

Posted on April 21, 2009 at 2:36pm 2 Comments

I just got off the phone with my Endo's office and they are submitting the paperwork to my insurance company to start me on the Omnipod pump. I have butterflies in my stomach. I am excited about this but also really nervous. I am praying that the Lord would give me the strength to know this decision is about my health and having healthy children some day. It is not about what people think about me when they see it. It is hard to not be vain and think that people will think I am weird for having… Continue

pre-authorization lady wants to be BFF

Posted on February 13, 2009 at 10:38am 2 Comments

This was my recent entry on my blog:

One of the hoops I have to jump through with my insurance company is getting pre-authorization for my visits to the endocrinologist because he is a specialist. So every January I call and get the number of visits for that year approved. This is amazing to me because should Jesus come back or a cure be discovered this whole diabetes thing is not going away. One would think that just the nature of having a chronic disease would signal… Continue

Hi Jamie. I am also in the process of starting on the omnipod. I think I remember seeing you post about this on Oh! Baby! also. I am trying to get my a1c down in order to have a baby. I have been MDI for 21 years. What are you doing in terms of the new PDM? Are you waiting to start until the new one on June 1st or going ahead and then up grading? I seem to know more about dates then my endo or med supplier. Seems like we are in just about the same boat so thought I would see how it's going for you. Take Care, Karin
