T1mommy replied to JLemon's discussion 'Pump vs. Pens'
"I was diagnosed 4/2011, started with pens then switched to Medtronic pump late last year when I was pregnant. I switched back to the pen this summer for a few reasons. I didn't like the tubing and was never comfortable wearing the device…"

T1mommy replied to Karen's discussion 'MDI then pump and then back to MDI'
"I was diagnosed 1.5 yrs ago and have gone from MDI to pump an then back to MDI. My pump was good for when I used it, but I just didn't like the tubing. Also, my insulin needs are very low right now and I'm constantly in the pool this…"

T1mommy replied to meee's discussion 'Novolog and Lantus: how long do they last once used?'
"Right, didn't bolus because of the exercise, but obviously my body wanted to react differently that time! It's still trial and error, but try not to stress too much. It's funny because I'm always afraid to go too low. I feel more…"

T1mommy replied to meee's discussion 'Novolog and Lantus: how long do they last once used?'
"Hi meee, I haven't tried the pen yet, but will probably try it soon. The humalog pen I have now was a sample to tide me over, but I've been using it since mid June. Seems to still work - yesterday I was 238 after bkfst (I exercised in the…"

T1mommy replied to meee's discussion 'Novolog and Lantus: how long do they last once used?'
"Thanks for the correction on both counts. I only saw 100u per ml and failed to see it was 3ml. And, I tend to lose sight of the original post when I read some of the other replies, of course she's using novolog. :)"

T1mommy replied to meee's discussion 'Novolog and Lantus: how long do they last once used?'
"FYI - I got my doc to write a rx for the luxura(?) pen from lily. It uses 100 units of humalog and doses in half units. I heard of it from another post on this site, my endo hadn't heard of it. I have not used it yet - I'm in the same…"

T1mommy replied to Josh's discussion 'How hard is it to get on the pump?'
"It was really easy for me, but I also had the benefit of working directly with the minimed rep for a month (I could txt her, see her in person, etc with any questions I had).  My endo was very familiar with the pp I got, which is why I got it.…"

T1mommy replied to Clare's discussion 'Have you switched from pump back to MDI ?'
"I know, it is such a small amount that I want to say - I don't have diabetes, but know that's not the case and probably honeymooning. :) Unfortunately, our baby boy died 2 days before our scheduled c-section at 37 weeks. We don't…"

T1mommy replied to Clare's discussion 'Have you switched from pump back to MDI ?'
"I switched back last month but was only on the pump for 9 months.  I was dx'd with LADA 15 months ago, got pregnant and started the minimed paradigm last Sept.  after my pregnancy, I switched back to MDI.  I didn't like the…"

T1mommy replied to MKSSS's discussion 'Going to a pump while honeymooning?'
"I was dx with T1 4/2011, did injections for a while (levemir/humalog), then went on the pump 9/2011 mainly because I got pregnant. Now I want to go off the pump - I'm averaging 10 units a day, 70% basal/30% bolus. I eat low carb and exercise…"

T1mommy replied to Amy2188's discussion 'Pregnant and very confused ..'
"I really didn't intend to cause you anymore worry, but I think you are doing the right thing by trying to find more answers (especially with the doctors). I did the same thing as you and tried to research as much as I could online. Just…"

T1mommy replied to Amy2188's discussion 'Pregnant and very confused ..'
"Hi Amy. This just happened to me recently - I had read that the drop would happen closer to 36 weeks and was surprised when it happened around 32/33 weeks. I also started getting sick and dehydrated at the same time so endo, OB and perinatologist…"
