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"

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…"
Friday
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…"

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."
Sep 20
Scott Wilkins replied to CC's discussion 'Problems with New Dexcom' in the group Dexcom Users
"It may be nothing. Give it some time and see if it starts working again soon. If still nothing in 24 hours, you have a bad sensor."
Sep 18
Scott Wilkins replied to Bonnie's discussion 'United HealthCare and Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Your Doc didn't do the paperwork correctly. Call Omnipod for them to help your Doc's office in getting the paperwork done right. Usually they are very willing to help out on this touchy problem with insurances. They really pulled some…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Joern's discussion 'Cleaning a dead sensor and re-insert it' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'm pretty sure this will not work. The Dexcom works due to a chemical change that occurs on the material that's inserted in your body. Over time the material change renders it useless as it's chemical makeup changes and eventually…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Linny's discussion 'First Big "ol Hematoma!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Sounds like a basic infection, though may be a bit more than "basic." Urgent care clinics are available and you might consider that if you feel you need help sooner than you Doc can provide. Other than that, just bad luck it seems."
Sep 1
Scott Wilkins replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'First Week with Dex G4' in the group Dexcom Users
"Dex only recommends your stomach area for the sensor. But a few folks here do wear them on arms and legs too. Also, consider you could wear the sensor for more than 1 week, just go through the replacement routine on the controller without replacing…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Aussie's discussion 'Blacking out' in the group Dexcom Users
"Once at a diabetic summer camp, I went extremely low. By the time the camp doc had a look at me, I was finally climbing up. He seriously thought I probably hit zero, or got very close to it."
Aug 29
Scott Wilkins replied to Andrea555's discussion 'Charging Dexcom in car' in the group Dexcom Users
"The car would not have affected it. They do get crazy once in a while. One of the many reasons we calibrate it at least twice a day."
Aug 26
Scott Wilkins replied to dishers's discussion 'Doctor still in the dark ages' in the group OmniPod Users
"Find a new doc and don't transfer reports."
Aug 26
Scott Wilkins replied to Tripp Lewis's discussion 'Remove Workaround?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Just uninstall the old version before installing the Windows 8 compatible version. Works great that way. The old version work around was a simple insert into the registry to find the USB/Serial converter connection easier. By uninstalling you also…"

Scott Wilkins replied to nevada's discussion 'CGM in the cloud, nightscout, Pebble watch, #WeAreNotWaiting, oh my.....' in the group Dexcom Users
"What I'm keeping an eye on is the iPhone Health abilities in the upcoming iOS 8."
Aug 15
Scott Wilkins replied to nevada's discussion 'CGM in the cloud, nightscout, Pebble watch, #WeAreNotWaiting, oh my.....' in the group Dexcom Users
"The Nightscout was interesting. Seems to me a better solution could be in a Raspberry PI computer (super super tiny and cheap computers) with a Linux solution. Android is SO insecure these days, I wouldn't trust it with private info."

Secret Type 1 cure????

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

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…
