S Woodward commented on Emily Coles's event 'Artificial pancreas discussion in the TuDiabetes open chatroom'
"Will they have to redo all studies if the AP is ready to using ultra-rapid insulin. I would not use it w/o it running ultra-rapid. Of course it may require a new algorithm, or would it. If so would it have to be released using outdated insulin?"

Kaiser OR says that T1D patients only need 5 strips a day to manage D

Posted on December 20, 2009 at 11:00pm 3 Comments

This is the address of the MD who is driving the Kaiser policy that limits Type 1 Diabetic patients to only five, that is right, 5 strips a day to manage their T1 Diabetes.



Send him a few notes to let him know about the reality of dealing with T1D and what the trade off in cost would be if they limit the use of test strips. cost such as ER, Dr Visits, EMS, Loss Productivity, Diabetes Complications, etc.



It seems like something out of the '80s or '90Hiss is an internist who… Continue

Thanks you for sharing the chi running web site. The only chi in my life is my tai chi lessons I take. I will be so anxious to try this out and see if I can go longer now. That was so kind of you. J

Thanks for the advice on Chi running. I had never heard of that. I had both knees fully replaced three years ago and want to get back to long distance running instead of these shorter runs. I did 26 miles before. Can't wait to try this when the snow melts. I can't believe I am saying that in Central Texas! J
