A little background info...I was on Lantus and Humolog a few months ago, and that seemed to be working ok for me. 10-15 units before meals and I was ok. But my new endo switched me from humolog to…Continue

"Supporters"

Posted on November 9, 2009 at 6:22pm 13 Comments

I have noticed some things recently. There are a few types of "supporters" out there. And most are annoying. And while they mean well...they don't realize that they are hurtful/annoying.



1. The Food Police.

My husbands uncle is this. And what makes it worse...is that he is a diabetic as well. He constantly scrutinizes what I put in my mouth. OMG did I just eat that cookie?!?! He will hound me and make snide little "jokes" about what sugar I am eating while he eats handfuls and… Continue

Update on apidra.

Posted on October 29, 2009 at 7:50pm 4 Comments

I figured with leaving you all out of the loop the past couple of days you might be worried. Sorry, I just felt like keeping quiet and to myself. I've been incredibly stressed about all of this. In the past few days I have learned that my body really doesnt do well with carbohydrates. Redundant statement much? But really. My endo told me last time that I am allowed one carb point per meal, which equals out to 40g of carbs. SIKE! My body allows me 12 or less carbs. With 12 carbs each meal I can… Continue

I really do appreciate it.

I know at times I can sound a bit whiny. :) But what's different about this site is that the people here are understanding and nice. It really does help, and makes me feel like maybe there ARE people out there that understand and who I can talk to. So thank you. :)

Let's figure this out. *edit*

Posted on October 24, 2009 at 6:30pm 14 Comments

So I posted a forum topic about my apidra issue. Basically I find that it it dosnt work for me. One night I had to take 60 units to cover a simple salad (that didnt even have croutons). So some folks suggested I open a new pen and try that to see of maybe the one I am using is defective. So I figured...why not. I already paid for around 10 pens and they are just sitting in my fridge. So I wanted to just write in here and log how it goes tonight.

For the past couple of days I havent been… Continue

Hi Honey...I started a discussion on the forum...Insulin Pen Usage....I wanted to get information for you from members that use the pen. I hope that it helps you and maybe you can figure out what is going on...hate to see you run so high and get sick, it is unnecessary. I hope that it helps.

Jessica, how are you doing today? I've been type 1 a long time, and I have gotten a bad bottle of insulin a couple of times. I've also let bottles expire, and sit out of the fridge too long, with bad results. I hope you started anew everything. If you haven't already, call the doctor. It's all very frustrating, isn't it? let us know how you are doing.
