"I have worn the Ping in the water, when in the shower - and got it specifically because it is waterproof. WE had a sail boat and the last thing I needed was to go for a swim and my pump would get wet and die on me. I also kayak and canoe - and my…"
"I am curious as to why the battery cap and cartridge cap was changed every 30 days on your PING. Usually twice a year is enough...I have Animas pumps for years and this is the first time I have heard they had to be changed every 30 days. Twice a…"
"I have had no luck with Apidra. I've been pumping Novolog for about 14 years and have never had a problem. Humalog gave me site issues, although I injected it fine for years. Best wishes and let us know how everything goes.
"I have a friend who had the same thing happen. His Doctor made a case for him to stay on the Victoza and the insurance company is covering it. His control was not as good on the Bydureon and the mixing he called "a bad science experiment."…"
"Hi Julie Sorry for the late reply. I take my shot in the morning before breakfast. Have you tried that? I have had some slight cramping in the beginning, but it did subside. It took a few weeks to get rid of the nausea. I also was on Metformin -…"
"HI Susan...I see you posted this a while ago but I have been seeking another type 1 diabetic who is using Victoza... and was hoping for some advice! My daughter is 16 years old and has type 1 diabetes. She has been on an insulin pump for 11 years.…"

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 am getting train for an aminios pump(PING) I see the nurse on instructions Monday the 8th,blood work with cortsol levels. The on the 11th see a dietian on carb counting. I have to keep a record of my BS befor meals and night time.and 2 hrs after meals and for some reason 3 AM . I have done this except the 3 AM if I up. I can't see much and when I fall asleep I can't wake myself to do that. So theres where I'm at so far.....Keep in touch
Susan, I know a few people on the pump. Each one has a different one. They also all like the pumps they have. Any suggestions? I go to the MD's on November 24th , let me know if you can give me some ideas...
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.
