"The college I teach at actually has a Diabetes Club! So I'm sure you're bound to find fellow type 1s among students as well as among professors. This disease gives us all a bond. Good luck to you. This forum is such a great place to go for…"
I know this is an old post, but I wanted to tell you that I am facing the same issues. Reading "recovering with t3" helped understanding why I always got a weird insulin resistance, and it is a protocol that advocates going on t3…"
"I had to send my back as part of the free upgrade. The older pumps are refurbished and used as replacements for those who are not upgrading. That is how they can send you one in 24 hours if your breaks down. I hope you enjoy your mm%30g pump. I am…"
"Are you sure they want to send you a mm530g series pump instead. It is the news pump and was just approved for the US a couple months ago. I ordered my Revel pump the a few weeks later Medtronic is calling me about upgrading to the 530g for free.…"
"I too am surprised by these low numbers. I use about 15 U basal and 15 U bolus/day. It reflects my sedentary-mom-stage of life. (Very hard to be a working mom and have a three-year-old AND have diabetes). Not whining - it's wonderful...but I…"
Hi Maria! It is now over a year since we talked. I am eager to know how your diabetes is developing? I experienced a loss of a couple of kilos without increase in my HbA1C after starting Lantus 6, just recently increased to 8 IE. Supplementing with 2 IE novorapid per meal, all in all about 8 IE daily. Looks like I am at the same phase you were a year ago, wondering how long this will last.
omg i have wanted to be a biochemist since i was 15 but never could gather enough money to get into college- and then be able to support myself at the same time. I mean grants and scholarships are great, but what do you do with your husband at home? :( haha.
Glad to hear its going good :) Please see my one blog post to see how I'm wearing mine. I love that way!!! Also I really am not minding the site changes as I find them to be mostly painless and very easy :) Let me know what you think of my pump case, you mentioned wearing it in a pocket when you have one which is why I found a diferent way because I don't nearly always have one :)
I'm mostly a soprano, yes, but it has always been a hotly debated topic among those who work with me. I have had directors and teachers cast me in either direction and then argue over whether I'm a lyric mezzo or a lyric soprano...which I think has a lot to do with why I didn't go on to do an opera career. I love teaching high school voice though. They are so talented and so motivated. I sing for a few local churches as a soloist, too.
I'm so glad you're doing well with the pump so far. Those first few weeks with any new technology are always the hardest. To be honest, I don't remember much about my first years pumping, but I was in college with a hundred things on my mind and diabetes was unfortunately not the priority it should have been.
