"I am type one lada, lantus only. Honeymooning 4 years, but I have to follow low carb and exercise daily to keep my honeymoon going. Low carb was tough at the beginning, but my body is used to it. You could add some nuts/avocado to your diet. They…"

"Cadvet... I will also add that I am still taking basal only!! Lots of hard work, though. Strict diet and lots of walking. I also use dexcom which really keeps me in line. I have read that some can honeymoon for a long time. My endo can't…"

"Hi cadvet!! I had gestational diabetes. I was 28 years old. They did not do GAD testing then. Four years ago, I was dxd with type 1 slow onset at age 50. There are times I wish I knew that I was going to be dxd with this, but I was always healthy…"

"I found that sensors don't last long on the stomach area because we are bending, twisting etc. Also, in the summer lots of sweating. As I think I said on the Left boob thread, I place the sensor on the hours of a clockface 1:00 - 11:00 if you…"

"No need for tape at all. The edges of the sensor sticky-pad don't curl up at all. There is some "grey circle" when you remove it, but that's easy to take off."

"Thanks for info Roodgirl. And I will try to be calm when I have to add bolus!!! It seems like the more I educate myself on this disease, the more anxious I get! Have you ever heard of anyone going straight to the pump without doing MDI for awhile…"

"Artwoman... I had read that boob sensor post!!! Very good info. Now to get the nerve up to try it!! Do you use any tape with skin tac if sensor is on your arm or other? I don't mind it without tape, but my tape job doesn't look pretty!!!…"

"You could also try lower back or upper butt. In either case avoiding the waistband area. Both of those would be covered by shirts or shorts. PS- Try not to freak out about switching from basal only to MDI when you & your doctor decide the time…"

"Check out the post about "I finally tried the left boob" - can't remember the exact title. But I've had great success using the girls. Since I pay out of pocket for the Dexcom, I want it to last and stick as long as possible.…"
