Isn't Juvenile Diabetes an Antiquated term?

Started this discussion. Last reply by acidrock23 Jul 27. 18 Replies

I see this terminology all the time, especially JDRF. Maybe after 50+ years of Type 1, I am no longer juvenile and hate to be corralled in that fence.Continue

Accu-Chek Aviva Test Strips LOT 493755

Any one experience this Accu-Chek problem? I checked carefully to ensure I was given the correct strips for my meter.Some of my supply from a recent refill is missing the code key. The first had a code key for 113. The rest I have opened have no code key (5 of the ten provided,) but require a 113 code key.When I changed it out Friday and noticed no code key but the same code number, I just used them anyway, thinking it was a fluke. After some really flaky differences between the CGM and the BG…See More

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.
