NorCal T1 replied to Cayla's discussion 'Do you prefer shots or the pump?'
"Very shortly after the corrected diagnosis to T1, my CDE started talking up the pump. She got me into one of her pump classes and I started to do my research. My recollection is about 90 days later, I was pumping. Fast forward about a year, I was in…"

2nd Anniversary (Diversary)

Well, two years ago this evening I was laying in a hospital bed awaiting my dinner. Since that morning I went to the ER and was first told those words that those who read these pages know too well, "you have diabetes". Not surprisingly my blood sugar did not come down enough to release me from the ER to home, so I was admitted to the cardiac care floor. The only bed they at the time , not due to any heart related risk. The best part of it was I got a private room, with lots a visitors (mainly…See More

"My experience is discomfort when dosing 10+ units of Humalog. It's gone within 30 seconds, so no big deal, but it's different than Novolog. At the time of my medical plans switch in insulin, I was using the Ping w/Contact/Detach sets. All…"

"I've taken this for over 20 yrs. and been a diabetic for 1 1/2 yrs. The doctors and CDE are aware that I take it and have never said anything about any impact on blood sugars. I do know if I've run out of it and don't buy more right…"
