Scott Wilkins replied to rgcainmd's discussion 'New Transmitter!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Cool! Now if they'd make the sensor pad thinner too it'd really be a big plus for this system. So far that's been my only real gripe is the height of the sensor/transmitter setup, it's just too "out there" while on your…"
Wednesday
Scott Wilkins replied to Hummingbird's discussion 'A1c down thanks to my dexcom' in the group Dexcom Users
"Congrats on your success! I too had great results, went from a steady 8 to a 6.1 in about 6 months. Even ran only a 6.3 last time, and that's a big deal because I was on a steroid treatment for a surgery recovery therapy thing. And we all know…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Lorraine's discussion 'DexCom Share Approved by the FDA | #Dexcom #Dexcomshare' in the group Dexcom Users
"I don't see anything about a requirement for Windows... Since it's cloud based, the OS used on shouldn't matter."
Monday
Scott Wilkins replied to Lorraine's discussion 'DexCom Share Approved by the FDA | #Dexcom #Dexcomshare' in the group Dexcom Users
"A little disappointing, as it's not a setup for full control of the Dexcom via smartphone but at least a move in the right direction. I guess full control would require a different hardware configuration for the receiver and/or transmitter."
Monday
Scott Wilkins replied to Lorraine's discussion 'DexCom Share Approved by the FDA | #Dexcom #Dexcomshare' in the group Dexcom Users
"Android is too virus ridden. I'd never put personal info on any Android device."
Monday
Scott Wilkins replied to Kate's discussion 'New syringe design' in the group OmniPod Users
"There is a thread here where folks were questioning this "new" syringe. As long as it works, I guess it really doesn't matter. It's just a delivery device, as if it's clean I guess it OK."
Oct 19
Scott Wilkins replied to Kay459's discussion 'New to Omnipod- can you help me figure out what I am doing wrong?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Sounds to me that simply your doctor needs to get into the process. I believe from reading your story that the settings are simply not correct. This is actually very normal for the first few months of insulin pumping. It is a different delivery…"
Oct 15
Scott Wilkins replied to Scott A's discussion 'Are the Dexcom sensors lasting as long these days?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I had that a few sensors back, not lasting barely 2 weeks. But I just changed one out after 5 weeks of wearing it, which is too long but I got lazy and didn't want to change it until it started getting sore which it did so I gave up on it.…"
Oct 10
Scott Wilkins replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Sticking Needle' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've had this happen a few times. Never on the older larger pods, but the new one's don't seem to have as good of a spring system, and the needle does get stuck in the down position at times. I've told Insulet about this a few…"
Oct 8
Scott Wilkins replied to theles's discussion 'Like Clockwork: Low BG at 4am' in the group Dexcom Users
"The problems you have are exactly why I also changed my control to using a pump instead of MDI. Massive difference in control! Brought my A1c down from 8.0 to 6.0 range too."
Oct 6
Scott Wilkins replied to meee's discussion 'Sensor Kaput?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I see this from time to time too. Usually corrects itself after a few hours, once in a while it takes a day to correct itself."
Oct 6
Scott Wilkins replied to Dave's discussion 'Major reliability improvement?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Mine don't have the new syringes, but I've not had a failure in about 4 boxes. They have become much more reliable. My biggest problem remains that the new pods cannula insertion sometimes sticks for a few seconds, which is very painful."

Scott Wilkins replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'NEED TO VENT . . . once again (sorry if it's a repeat!) just wish i can get the sensors to last!' in the group Dexcom Users
"I use these to help with insertion pain. Works a little bit, but no prescription and every little bit helps. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FA3SWUC"
Sep 26
Scott Wilkins replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'NEED TO VENT . . . once again (sorry if it's a repeat!) just wish i can get the sensors to last!' in the group Dexcom Users
"I too have noticed shorter times I get out of the sensors. Though originally I did have a couple I got almost 10 weeks out of (last year). What do you do to determine that it's time to replace? I have always had a time about 2 weeks, give or…"
Sep 26
Scott Wilkins replied to Bondedbyblood's discussion 'Asking for advise before starting omnipod!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Search here for Medicaid experiences from other users on Omnipods. It can be "fun" (not really), but can be done from what I understand. You just have to fight for it being a "durable medical device", which is the controller, not…"
Sep 22
Scott Wilkins replied to ANTONIA RETMAN's discussion '1st day and not sure what to think' in the group Dexcom Users
"First 24 hours usually can be off. Even though we calibrate twice a day I'll do it more on the first day."

Secret Type 1 cure????

Posted on August 15, 2012 at 7:30am 7 Comments

I'm not much of one for explosive headlines, but this one I found interesting.

Read it all, but here's the good part...

BCG's latest feat, though, is perhaps its most unexpected. Several years ago, Harvard professor Denise Faustman showed that BCG could be used to treat diabetes in mice. She demonstrated that the…
