It's time for me to choose a new pump and to finally get a CGM.I currently wear a Minimed Paradigm. Love the service I've gotten with them so far, but I got a demo OmniPod in the mail today and wow! The only adjustment I'd have to deal with is instead of 300 units, it tops off at 200. I'm thinking if that's all, well, maybe it's time to switch.I also have some OmniPod users in my circle and none of them have bad things to say about it.Sooooooooooo, I'm casting a wider net. Are there any major…See More

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
