"I had several of these types of issues, batteries not lasting long, the PDM turning off & on while I was using it, particularly when I would put it down and pick it up. Sometimes this would require reset and sometimes I would just waste a test…"

"We were denied once. My doctor has sent in two appeals, and I have sent one, including his records, letter from his doctor, letter from HIM, and lots of research. Unfortunately my insurance company can't seem to "find" any of the…"

Liz replied to The Diabetic Welfare Queen's discussion 'Does Insulin Make You Hungry All the Time?'
"Great idea! I eat primarily vegetarian also and end up eating too many carbs (in my opinion) and very little protein. I think it also keeps me feeling hungry between meals. I always think of protein as either meats or tofu, and struggle to build…"

Natasha Bowlds replied to Liz's discussion 'How long did it take you to get your basal just right?' in the group Omnipod Users
"That is my reasoning I used to fight for my son's CGM. He is very active, but we still have to set a 50% basal starting an hour before, and an hour after and only bolus for half of any carbs eaten right before or during intense exercise. I…"

Brad Ringer replied to Liz's discussion 'How long did it take you to get your basal just right?' in the group Omnipod Users
"Good luck getting your basals right. One thing I found is that my basal requirements change depending upon how much I exercise. I am very inconsistent so it messes me up. When I have been exercising for several days, my optimal basal rate is lower…"
