"We should definitely have a club! I have done this many times :) another favorite of mine is when I walk by a door and my line gets caught on the knob. I keep going and my pump stays there haha!"

"Probably won't surprise you to hear that frequent infections are also a common symptom of adrenal insufficiency. It's worth checking into, anyway ;)"

"Jessica, I totally understand your issue. I've been diabetic for 29 years and have always struggled with food so it doesn't make the munches that come along with the lows any easier. I ALWAYS over treat. I can't help it. I wish I…"

"Totally understand how you feel! I have had diabetes for 14 years. Lately my A1c has been higher than it has ever been, and I was just feeling like maybe I had a handle on it. I am having a tough time motivating myself to do better because when I…"

"Hmm... Good idea Elizabeth :) I just had a huge panel of bloodwork done but I can't remember if they tested for that. I do have highs too, I had huge marriage issues a couple of months ago and am just finally getting them back close to normal…"

"Jessica, are you having lows only, or highs too? Because usually, stress brings on highs, and what may be happening is, you're over-correcting for the highs and winding up stacking yourself into a low. Another possibility, if you're having…"

"Wow, 2 to 4 tabs?? Kit kats! I'm with Jenni. Depending on the severity of the hypo I ether take : 5 skittles 1 glucose tab (or a half if it's not too bad) 8 measures oz of OJ Yes, it's hard to resist that "I must eat everything…"

"Thanks for all the great advice! I am on a pump and I do bolus for the extra carbs but I know that's way too many to eat at once. I keep juiceboxes that are 15-18 carbs on hand at all times, but when I am low treats sound so much more…"

"Those of us with diabetes are just set up to have difficult relationships with food. Binging is something that I think many of us can relate to, and it doesn't just happen, it reflects our feelings about food and how messed up we can feel when…"

Elizabeth commented on Jessica's blog post 'Chocolate and Diet Coke will be the death of me!!! :)'
"What I do often is, I bolus for the food but set the pump to "square bolus" so that insulin infuses slowly. I don't know how that would work if you're on MDI though. I think what you would have to do is eat your carbs and wait 15…"

"Bolus for what you eat, correcting for the low blood sugar. That's easy on a pump (I'm using the Omnipod). The sugar goes through faster than the insulin, but I still wait until my blood sugar is at least 70 (and clearly going up) before…"

"Hi Jessica, I use glucose tabs, exclusively. I keep a roll of 10 tabs with me at all times. If I'm low and the brain is fuzzy, I can eat enough tabs to bring my blood glucose levels back up (2-4 tabs usually are enough to do the trick). And if…"

I feel like such a pig tonight! I just finished eating an ENTIRE King Size Kit Kat! Yes, the one that has like 8 very satisfying crunchy breaks. The yummy chocolaty goodness poured over the perfectly crisp wafers is hard to resist when my BS is good. But when it is low.... oh man, can't fight it. (Ha Ha)I am 21 and have been diabetic for 13 years. I have yet to find a good way to curb the cravings from being low. Has anybody out there found a good way to stop yourself before eating way too…
