My morning BG reading have been steadily raising. Two hours after breakfast this morning I was 239! Prior to breakfast I was 191. It's been going on like this all this week. I'm currently on a 1:2…Continue
"A month ago today, in fact I was preparing to go to the airport for a 5 day trip. I was a new pump routine and took the the most conservative option to assure I wouldn't likely go low while checking in and going through TSA. Didn't feel…"
"When I was in the endo's office recently, the nurse was checking for scar tissue, found some sites and had me feel them. She said, feel that? Yeah, I said "frozen peas". She smiled and agreed that's what they feel like. Just have…"
"No it doesn't always happen Zoe, but it is not uncommon for me. I do have to be careful since I have some scar tissue development in less than a year of pumping (I know, oh joy!). If I get a clean spot, 3 days aren't a problem.…"

"My CDE told me to be really boring and stay close to home for the first week or so when adjusting to the pump. It takes some time to see how your body reacts to the pump as opposed to MDI. Use good judgement and keep close tabs on your carb counts…"
"I'm 57 and nearly 9 months into this new life style. If I've learned anything it's you need to take every little bit of information as to how your body reacts to food, insulin, activity, etc. and then use that only as a guide for the…"
"From a fellow northern CA cat person to another, my thoughts are with you. It's amazing the love and companionship that cats give us. As other have said, take your time to morn and adjust. You've told her story beautifully and know that…"
