Janet Ballone replied to suz's discussion 'Leaving OmniPod Need advise.' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'll be 65 in two years and I have the same concerns. I'll never be able to afford OmniPod without covered insurance. I guess everyone who reaches 65 has to go back on the needle. Doesn't make sense."

"No, my amylase is fine (44, within the reference range of 27-110). My lipase is low (4 with a reference range of 13-80). However, my Lipase was 17 in 2009. I had an insulin test a few years ago and it was fine as well. So, all the more perplexing…"

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend Janet :)
New Jersey...far, and yet right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 33 years, mom to two grown children, a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator and graphic designer....I speak French and English, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Keep in touch, ok?
luv....linda
