Spock replied to Adele's discussion 'Is it worth buying an insulin pump???'
"Very simply, yes. A pump will change your life. And, no, you will not save money. Except in the long term you will have less side effects of T1, lowering medical costs. But day-to-day? Pump supplies are costly."

Spock replied to niccolo's discussion 'why don't we inject insulin intravenously?'
"I have seen posts here from folks inject in a vein when the BG is really high. I would love to know how and feel comfortable doing that, but only with a high BG. The four hour wait to bring a high BG down is torture."

Andrew Phillips replied to Spock's discussion 'Accu-Chek Aviva Test Strips LOT 493755'
"I got my refills in the red boxes with no key, and figured out that Roceach.he had stopped the scam where they were obsoleting perfectly good strips on a date certain. What I didn't realize was that these new strips wouldn't work past the…"

"I don't skip breakfast as I find that if I do, the DP will keep rolling and turn into midmorning phenomenon, lunch phenomenon, etc. If my BG is high, I'll have eggs and bolus for like 7U (a couple of carbs and 10G of protein or so...plus…"

"My suggestion is that you should continue to eat and Bolus in relation to your food intake and cover as appropriate. While this seems counter intuitive, not eating, actually is a further signal to your liver to release more glucose. The more it…"

Spock replied to Spock's discussion 'Suggestions, please--not Thanksgiving related'
"Thanks, Zoe. I hate to put a crook in the celebrations, which will happen if I cannot eat. I also find it very stressful, raising BG, to watch other people eat when I am hungry. Just down in the dump-a-roos tonight."

Zoe replied to Spock's discussion 'Suggestions, please--not Thanksgiving related'
"All I want to say to you, my friend, is don't lose perspective. Test more often so if you crash you can catch it. As for tomorrow: GO! Don't ruin your time spent with family/friends because of the damn D gremlin - else it wins. You can…"

Spock replied to Spock's discussion 'Suggestions, please--not Thanksgiving related'
"I did an injection at 295. Site has been working perfectly, but it is about to be changed out, waiting for the insulin to warm first. When in doubt. I have made major changes. I am aware of DP and the changes it brings, especially , for me, when the…"

"I'm with Zoe - change in DP. Start increasing your basal around 6-7 am? Over the last 5 days? Have you changed to a new insulin vial? Are you having any infusion site issues? I recently have been having a problem with scar tissue despite a…"

Alisha replied to Spock's discussion 'Suggestions, please--not Thanksgiving related'
"The same scenario happened to me last week. I finally upped my basal from .90 to 100 and my night time from .95 to 1.05 and sure enough after 1 day I was doing much better. About a month ago I had the opposite issue of bad lows for about a week. I…"

Zoe replied to Spock's discussion 'Suggestions, please--not Thanksgiving related'
"Could it be the advent of Dawn Phenomenon - or the increase of such if you already have it? I never have had DP and then all of a sudden I had symptoms like that. I hiked up my basals (can't remember how much but it felt like a lot. It…"

Hi - I just read your comment re restless leg syndrome. I have had it since my early teens and it keeps getting worse and worse (I'm now 60). I cannot go on a long car trip, or even to a concert or lecture or movie without taking a load of requip, which then in 2 hours gives me the side effect of a major frontal headache.
I think most of my doctors think I'm exaggerating how bad it is. One doc put me on iron supplements, which upset my stomach. I even ordered an expensive TENS machine off the web, which, essentially did nothing.
I used to get immediate relief from a hot bath, but, that no longer works. Sometimes I have to just stand and read for a couple of hours until the flare passes. At this point, it is far more challenging to live with than the db. Please let me know if you have fouind anything that helps.
