Susan, I seen the endocrinologist, she had me see the nurse educator on Dec 8th where she wants me to keep a month of BS, since I just got off prednisone a couple months ago and my sugars were wacky. So for this next month I will be montoring my BS x's a day. I seen the dietitian today the 11th and were are going over carb counting. I got the call for the aminous (PING) company any my insurance excepted it. Now it a process of waiting for the BS to get done in the middle of Jan. and learning how to use it. I am looking forward to having one..

I used Symlin for almost a year, but then quit due to not a lot of benefit and some other issues I was having. As a result of going on the Dex, and watching my post-breakfast number patterns spike, my endo put me back on it for breakfast only. I've been really pleased with that change. I do 0/100 over an hour, and it works well for me.

Welcome to tudiabetes Susan! I see you have been finding your way around....we seem to have Animas, Dex, and Symlin in common:)
