Joyce commented on Suebcool's blog post 'CGM'
"This is horrible. I am also completely dependent on my dexcom to make me aware of lows. I am terrified at the thought of being without it and am 5 years away from the same situation. People need to be aware of this. I wish you all the best and will…"

Joyce replied to 4xgrandma's discussion 'CGMs and Medicare'
"Please let us know how it goes. I'm looking at the same situation in 5 years. Can't believe they would rather have us end up in the emergency room when a CGM can be so helpful in preventing the lows. I wear mine 24/7 and would hate to ever…"

Joyce replied to Jan's discussion 'Help send a message to the US Gov't that *all* diabetics need coverage for pumps and CGMs'
"I agree, health care is a right and not a privilege. I think pumps and CGMs should be covered. I don't feel my lows until the 40's and can't imagine life without my Dexcom. Unless things change, a CGM will not be covered under the…"

Joyce replied to ckurpiewski's discussion 'Go straight to insulin?'
"I would definitely do the antibody test to see if you could be Type 1. For me, insulin is by far the easiest way to control the blood sugar. Keep asking questions and get the tests you need. Good luck!"

Thanks so much, I truely appreciate the information its just what I was looking for. Now I understand why my sugar levels were jumping so high at times. I did go on the web site for a moment, but I am going to go look at a bookstore to find the book. I would rather have the book for quick reference. At the present time I only have access to my computer at work. The more information the better. I do have a appointment in Jan. Thank again...

Thanks Joyce, I appreciate the information and will look up the book and web site. I agree the ADA isn't much help. I take 1000 mg of MET twice daily and my sugar doesn't seem to go down much. One day it's in the 140s then the 170s. I read all labels and watch the sugar and fat contents. Now i will check the carbs also. The things I don't understand are which sugars can be alright, like fruit sugars. Well I know that it confusing but I believe that everyday I learn more. I'll keep monitoring and keep working on the diet. Thanks for commenting its so frustrating. Know my Doctor has set up a appointment with a kidney doctor because some counts are way too high due to the high glucose that I had for months and didn't know. Well thanks Joyce for the information..
