TC replied to artwoman's discussion 'Why don''t they believe us? A Vent'
"I understand the suspicious doctor perspective on many issues when I think of it through the lens of lawsuits and malpractice. On the other hand, I would sign a waiver of, "I, nor my family, will ever sue you if you promise to treat us…"

TC replied to Holger Schmeken's discussion 'Dexcom G4 - poor design of the xml file for export'
"Not sure if this helps, but I've used the tab delimited format (maybe it was comma delimited) from the G4 with success. It opens in Excel 2007 or newer perfectly."

TC replied to svaughan's discussion 'BS Numbers'
"It appears that the latest research focuses on a couple of factors, your average BG value and the Standard Deviation (SD) from that value. I have spent the last few months reading this research and what is readily apparent is that diabetics follow…"

TC replied to Benjamin McLaughlin's discussion 'Tips and Tricks with insulin and insurance in Oklahoma'
"If you are with the same employer, you can keep your BCBS of LA policy. I live in TX and have a BCBS of MN policy I get through work. All BCBS providers across the country should be in-network for you. If you are switching employers, then…"

TC commented on BriannaM's blog post 'a1c and employers'
"I concur with Brian on this. However, there may be some loop holes, for instance, if a candidate brings the topic up--even so, I still don't think it is okay to request your latest A1c."

TC replied to Alessio Alex's discussion 'has anyone been using the same insulin dosage since the begging of T1DM'
"I agree with the other post that suggests your immune system may have very quickly wiped out your insulin producing islets, thus no change in your insulin needs. I take it you were also fully grown at diagnosis? I'm curious, are your BG…"

TC replied to brandi's discussion 'Medical Supplied Needed and Uninsured'
"Georgia has a medical care program for children with chronic medical conditions (T1D included) 0-21 that you should be eligible for! http://health.state.ga.us/programs/cms/"

TC replied to Pavlos's discussion 'Type 1 Diabetes Cured in Dogs.'
"One site I like, by Joshua Levy, that reviews research on cures to T1D is: http://cureresearch4type1diabetes.blogspot.com/ He is cautious with how he analyzes and reports on diabetes research. His site is not exhaustive, but does cover current…"

TC replied to brandi's discussion 'Medical Supplied Needed and Uninsured'
"There have been lots of good suggestions posted, but it you need more help finding resources, send me a message."

TC commented on Clare's blog post 'Things I have learned about the G4 after 3 months'
"We have been paying out-of-pocket for these for our 10 year-old. Fortunately, our insurance company just approved this item, so they will be covering them in the future. But even if they weren't, I'd still pay for them out-of-pocket--worth…"

TC replied to Vicky's discussion 'How can I help my son with type one diabetes?'
"Starbucks has a wonderful bottle of sugar free vanilla flavoring, but it costs $9/bottle. Good stuff though! I love the suggestion of using it in almond milk!"

TC replied to reberman's discussion 'post meal blood sugar spikes, how do you avoid them?'
"My son can have up to 30 carbs in a setting without too much spike usually. However, sometimes his BG will briefly spike and then come back down even when only eating 30 carbs. The best method to avoid this for him is to bolus 15 minutes before…"

TC replied to Vicky's discussion 'How can I help my son with type one diabetes?'
"The kind of protein powder we use is Rich Chocolate GNC Lean Shake 25 (must be the "25" for lower carb). These are almost always buy 1 get one 50% off. One container lasts exactly 3 weeks if you use 2 level scoops a day, so the cost is $10…"

TC replied to Vicky's discussion 'How can I help my son with type one diabetes?'
"I can tell you what my son eats, but you may have to adjust to your son's height/weight. My son is 5' 0" tall and 95 pounds. He eat 4 meals a day, each 30-40 grams of carbohydrate. This amount of carbohydrate works well to not spike…"
