"Back to the fuzzy logic and the artificial pancreas . . . . my masters degree was in electrochemistry which includes things like biosensors. Although I did not work on them (way too close to home), many in my lab did. The problem with getting all…"
"P.S. I am not on a diabetic diet. I eat like a healthy, thin, non-diabetic. I do my best to eat several servings of veges and fruit each day, tend to eat a lot of meat and nuts, and very light on breads. Never eat at fast food places (because I…"
"Oh wow, I hope you're up for a long response, because I take a LOT of factors into account.
In my own, personal, fuzzy-logic computations, I will start with long-acting or basal insulin. I have found that, if I have the basal just right, then…"
"Hello Alex's Mom:
With respect you appear to be confusing some issues. The video was designed specifically to raise money for the parents entirely understandable agenda-goal. That said, the simple reduction of insulin will certainly gain the…"
"Hello to all who have responded. A type one in 1962 had a 20year life expectancy so I am right in there with those who are looking at retirement and didn't expect to see it. Didn't plan financially and really didn't worry about it.…"

It is harder to be impotent, and forced to watch than to be the diabetic."
"I hear you. I was diagnosed in 1971 (not so long after you) and since what was known back then was pretty limited I had to be "re-educated" in my teens. At that time I thought that there was some sort of simple, linear chart (which applied…"
"Sorry you had that horrible reaction- at least your bg was good. I didn't know novacaine had epinephrine in it.. I've never had that reaction. I don't think I've had dental work done since being on insulin but I will ask them to…"
"I always ask to have a local without the epinephrine. I figured why do I want something that makes me anxious when I'm already anxious. I started doing that long before I got diagnosed with arrhythmia (mainly rapid heart beat); now I just say I…"
"Its a dynamic system, so the math is almost impossible. The mathematical model that has been developed incorporates a bunch of variables that we can't measure, from almost every organ in the body. Here it is, remember, YOU asked for it! :) Its…"
