Having an odd one at the moment, which I am blaming squarely on my bike ride recently (1000 miler over 10 days with final day being a 158 miler). Anyhow, now back at work and pumps back on its…Continue

Funny hypo stories...

Ok, hide sight is a wondrous thing, and as those on chat know I've had a few hypos in my time. Anyhow, some of them tended to turn out quiet amusing, and since many on here seem to fear hypos,…Continue

"Brian, I was recently over 500 BG; managed to bring it down by myself with a new Apidra pen and drinking 1 1/2 quarts of water. It was scary. My question: granted that one needs electrolytes, how does one get electrolytes in that kind of situation?"

"You might be right about your pre-hydratation? Hydration is really more about getting all your electrolytes in place rather than the amount of water you drink and have on board. Maybe you actually pre-dehydrated."

"True, except for the blood pH which by time I had reached hospital (ketones at 5.8) it was at 7.33 and by time it peaked at 7.8 it had dropped to 7.18 which is definitely in DKA (over here they have it as a pH less than 7.3). Interestingly…"

First time I've had DKA - don't want it again!

Posted on October 14, 2014 at 4:00pm 11 Comments

Well, first time for everything and all that. But DKA finally paid me a visit in all 34 years of dealing with this. And frankly still annoyed over it.

The day started pretty well. Early rise, all kitted up and prepped for the event today (62 mile cyclocross with 8824ft of climbs). Bloods were pretty perfect for it, 6.2 (111 in US money) had breakfast on a 60% bolus as usually and off rode to the start of the event. Was a little slow getting away so by about 8 miles into the event…

A little ride around Yorkshire! (Tour de France Stage 1)

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 3:30pm 6 Comments

Been a little quiet, but thought I would bring everyone up to date with the infamous Tour ride.

Well, the night before I have no idea what was going on with me, sky high levels all night. I had acquired a CGM for the ride off my DSN (CDE) and the alarm was driving me up the wall every hour waking me up. Ran corrections all night long and even changed my infusion set. Took till 5am to get them down to 162 (in US money)...but for most the night was over 280, very annoyed but all I could…

Can't believe we weren't friends yet, after such a long time. Just had the same happening with Curlysarah yesterday, we talk in chat all day long but never had the idea to actually become friends officially.

Nya, congrats on being featured. every week we feature a variety of members for one reason or another, or just because. this morning as my husband and I were driving to get our blood work done, we were listening to the BBC radio hour, and this guy was on who was telling about how he recreated the 1914 Tour of Italy bike race, and how difficult it was with wooden bikes and how he made a similar bike, and did the race. the brakes were made from wine corks. lol. anyway, I was wondering if you'd heard of him, it was fascinating.
