"I always ask my endo for insulin samples when I go in. Just a tip to offset your out of pocket for the visit. They usually give me a couple vials. :)"

"175 units and my 1600 calorie a day diet would put me into continuous insulin shock. Unless you SERIOUSLY over eat constantly, 175 units a day sounds way excessive."

"I use 1 vial of lantus and 3/4 vial of novolog a month. I eat sensibly and am fairly active so that cuts back on the insulin dosage required. The last time I checked Lantus was $100 a vial and novolog was the same. Amazing how the rest of the world…"

Lori replied to A. Barney's discussion 'Contact Lenses'
"I like Acuvue Oasis with Hydroclear Plus. They are 2 week disposable lenses. I like them better than other brands that I have tried because they are simply the most comfortable lens in my opinion. They stay hydrated well and I don't even feel…"

"Oh, god, sorry bro! Where were you? Was it in the middle of the night? (always more disconcerting, when you wake and have no idea who or where you are...and who are all these people?) I also get a little angry when I am below 30...and tear off my…"

"I had the same problem you did. They ended up replacing my PDM and my pods that had occluded. Since they replaced my PDM my sugar levels have gone down a lot. I had only had my PDM for less than 90 days."

peruvianpasohi replied to Lori's discussion 'Extremely frustrated with Omnipod' in the group Omnipod Users
"The unit needs a minimum of 80 units. If that is still too much, you can get the saline solution to mix your U100 down, but of course, you will need to remember to "dose" at 2x the rate it shows, if you are mixing 1:1 saline to insulin.…"

Hello Lori-

I've been following your "frustrated" discussion, and wanted to find out a little more about you! Is Crystal Bowersox the same woman from American Idol?
