"Thanks. We'll get faster results if we start "trending". I woke up high the other day with over an inch of air at the disconnect at my body. Had been getting air for who knows how long."

"Next time I see a massive bubble(s) I'll check the cap at the connector. Wasn't looking for that before. I get them every so often and then I will definitely register a complaint. I will make note "TUBING CONNECTOR TOO LOOSE" Sam."

"The code for our problem is "TUBING CONNECTOR TOO LOOSE". If you just say bubbles, it goes under "user error" and they don't have to do much. Please register your complaint. We have to have enough codes reported on our issue…"

"Good idea to stock pile. I do that with insulin. can't do that with anything else. while I was waiting for the insurance to cover my strips and pump supplies, I did have to purchase pump supplies and strips but couldn't afford the sensors.…"

Novolog Program Savings Card

Posted on April 9, 2012 at 8:38pm 0 Comments

I don't know if this has been mentioned, have not checked in for awhile. But I was able to get my two vials of Novolog for free this weekend via the Cornerstone4Care program. The program is for Novolog and Levemir and will assist with your co-pay up to $50. Since I elected a plan with a lousy $40 copay this year, I was thrilled that I didnt have to pay anything on Saturday when I got my insulin. And this program is good for an entire year.

Maybe someone else can benefit from this, sorry…

Thank you Laura! That's crazy that your university program didn't support diabetic dancers! Diabetics make the most disciplined and dedicated dancers! Have a great Christmas as well.
