"Staying on track is just a question of "Mindfulness". Awareness of what you are putting into your body that will aid and not hurt your diabetes control. Your motivation is to live a long and healthy life, to enjoy your time with family and…"
"Sounds kind of monotonousness to me. I have omelet and pork sausage patty, on occasion stone cut oats with blueberries. Broiled cottage cheese mixed with stevia and cinnamon on a half of a whole wheat "sandwich thin" along with my coffee…"
"As a novice pump user, I kept my basal dosage consistent throughout the day. After a couple of years usage of my pump, frequent testing, exercise, adjustments, I noticed a pattern where during the hours from 10am until around 5pm,my blood sugar…"
"Can only agree with your comments. I am a Type 2 that purchased my pump to have better control. (My primary care doc just kept telling me to increase my insulin shot dosage.) I cannot afford CGM or I would be there, too. But following Dr. B's…"
"Agree, Agree. It is all in the book. I work out several days each week and was able to see the pattern of drops. For me, I tried two different approaches. First because I am on an insulin pump, I reduced my basal dose by fifty percent. It worked…"

"You are doing quite well. I started restricting my carb intake last July. My A1C stays around 5.3, the first signs of retinopathy that my ophthalmologist reported last year has disappeared in my annual checkup this past week. I only will eat oatmeal…"
"That is a good start with 50g of carbs daily. It will help you feel confident. I am lucky that I can certainly tell when I am getting to 70 on my meter so as to not get too low. I got down to 50 as my lowest ever and don't want to do that…"
"I started on the Bernstein approach to bring my BGs down and it took about three months for the carb cravings to subside. I really went overboard to start with on his "WASA" thin crackers that he recommends and they satisfied my carb…"
"As a pump user and retired teacher, let me offer a few comments. Being that your son is recently diagnosed (you did not mention age), it is important for him first to understand his individual's body reaction to insulin. Sounds like he is early…"
"My personal physician had never heard of him, either. But he was overjoyed at my A1C score of 5.3 in August after having read his book and followed the guidelines for a couple of months prior. When I told my physician about the book, he immediately…"

Originally diagnose Type 2, but after almost two decades my C-Peptide range qualified my for a Medicare funded insulin pump supplies. I had already bought my own pump because I was one one hundredth points above the qualifying score when I asked my doctor to
