"If you can, keep in on your belly or just to the side. Dexcom will replace it if it fails in those locations. I tried the arm once, but it failed within a couple of hours... Good luck!"

"FYI, Dexcom will not support the sensor unless it is on your belly. Below your hip will not qualify. As for losing signal, there are a couple of things. I can keep my in the other room and it will pickup my sensor at night, unless it's near a…"

"I have to say, I watched this movie and found it riddled with problems. A lot of the claims are what I would term "half baked." But everyone is different and this may work for you. What I would caution you is that as a diabetic, you need…"

"We shall see. Vegetables do impact my BG, just slowly and my basal covers it, keeping me from going over 140. Fruit on the other hand is like napalm to my BG. I use fruit juice as a rescue tool, so that's where I'm more concerned. I'm…"

"A five day fast is a long time especially if you are dependent on outside insulin. I know that there are Jewish organizations that have "classes" to help Jews with diabetes fast for 26 hours on Yom Kippur which is quite a bit shorter than…"

Has anyone seen "Fat, sick, and nearly Dead"? Anyone tried the Juicing Fast?

Has anyone here seen Fat, Sick, and nearly Dead? Short premise; lose weight fasting on 80% vegetable / 20% fruit juicing. Short bio of me; T1.5 Pumper, middle age, over weight. The movie: I watched it last week and it got me thinking. I don't bolus for carbs from vegetables (Kale, spinach, lettuce, celery, etc..), but I do for fruits. I've gone through about 25 different juicing recipes from the website (www.rebootwithjoe.com) and figured out a…See More

"I'd rather have smart phone integration versus a single site. I would suspect too many problems with a 7 day infusion set and the cost of dexcom sensors on a 3-day rotation would be extremely high."
