"Hi Everyone! I've been using U500 since September of 2012. I've had a few issues with it. Most noticably was that it allowed by pump educator and endo to really increase my hourly rate with the pump. From September3rd to November 16th I…"

Diabetes, Sex, and Life

Posted on December 6, 2009 at 4:35pm 2 Comments

I don't know if it is me, or not, but how many of you have a sex drive? I have other ailments beside type 1, such as: hypothyroidism, menopause, ptsd, and mthr. I have been in long standing relationships, but with these elements my sex drive from when I was younger has gone down.



I know I work full-time and go to grad school, but does stress play a role in everything in our bodies. How can you really relax when there is soo much on your plate. You worry about the levels of your sugar… Continue

Diabetic and tattoos and piercings

Posted on November 4, 2009 at 7:39pm 2 Comments

I have heard that if your diabetic you cannot get tattoos or piercings. For me, I have 17 tattoos, and 13 piercings. No, I don't look like a tattoo and piercing freak. The tattoos I got all mean something, the shop I go to is very clean. You can eat something off the floor good. For my piercings, I have my tongue, nose, and lip, and ears pierced. I can wear outfits that you wouldn't even know I had a tattoo or piercing.



For health reasons, if you are a controlled diabetic I would say… Continue

Life as a diabetic...type 1

Posted on October 28, 2009 at 11:49am 0 Comments

I never thought in a million years I would be a type 1 diabetic, but I am. I have been on the medtronic insulin pump with continuous glucose sensors since December 2007. I started as a type 2 diabetic in March 2005 when I got really sick, and before that I had PCOS, and gestational diabetes.



My cholesterol is good and my blood pressure is good. Thank God!! I only take insulin (novolog) in the pump and symlin pen. I don't take metformin, because if I do I have the s***s from hell and… Continue
