TmoeZ commented on Rob's group 'Dexcom Users'
"@Cat It's done when the readings are just not even close or the site can get infected and start to itch or the sensor can just fall off if precautions for wearing it longer are not taken such as extra tape and such."

"@Cat Yep, that's exactly how you do it. Just stop and start the sensor. It will still take the normal time to re calibrate but it will work."

TmoeZ commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"Of course they can't tell you it's okay. I didn't mean to imply it was acceptable either. I just have done it myself in the past with no issues. You have to do what you have to do sometimes."

TmoeZ commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"draw it out with the syringe from a new pod. Same hole you put it in. It's pretty much a vile inside there just plastic bag instead of glass cylinder ;)"

"I was trying to be as respectful as I could being a guy. But you nailed it! UPPER BUTT!"

TmoeZ replied to Christine's discussion 'Pod placement on thin people' in the group OmniPod Users
"Even the thinnest of thin maintain a squishy spot just above the buttocks and below the belt line. I have heard this is a good spot for ladies and their bikinis. That's about the only "hiding" place I can think of besides your go to…"

"@Shawn - I just tell them before I walk through I have a pump. They make me touch it and then swab my hands. I won't let them swab it. Has worked all up and down the east coast and quite a few times on the west coast as well. However, on the…"

TmoeZ replied to Cocheze's discussion 'What Compression Sleeve Should I Get?' in the group OmniPod Users
" I have 2 of them for working out and playing basketball and softball. Very protective against the almost certain swipe and rip off of a pod."

TmoeZ replied to Aussie's discussion 'Fatty Foods, Insulin and going High' in the group Dexcom Users
"Steak? I rarely see any spike with steak. Hot dogs on the other hand just take a long time to break down and then you "can" see a spike. If it is consistent though and you are using a pump you could do a square bolus."

TmoeZ replied to Norma Coello- Plum's discussion 'what to do with your Dexcom?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Can't make any suggestions on this board. But there are some people who struggle with insurance that could use a new G4. Not for sale of course, wink wink."

TmoeZ replied to mcfc1987's discussion 'Omnipod Hot Bath uh-oh!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes, I'm going to run a hot bath and sit in it all day at work! I can see it now I'm going to invent a hot tub office chair for T1D! LOL, all joking aside this is right if your sugars were good your insulin is good."

TmoeZ joined SuFu, Ph.D.'s group

T1DM Powerlifting, Bodybuilding and High Intensity Training

An open forum to discuss nutrition, routines and how to work with type 1 to fulfill your potential. Exercise routines and how to dose with insulin both with pump and MDI to avoid acute and latent-onset hypoglycaemia. Picture is me after a cut.
Feb 25, 2014
TmoeZ replied to mcfc1987's discussion 'Omnipod Hot Bath uh-oh!' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't think there is any danger in having bad insulin in your pod other than the "it just won't work and you might as well have saline in your pod scenario". Sounds like your numbers are great! Hmmm, maybe I should…"

TmoeZ replied to Ron Doyle's discussion 'I just read about a new Breathalyzer for us?!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Nice no more glucose meters and supplies! Well....I did a little research on this because obviously something like this will not get past the FDA. This is how they will require a drug prescription....there will be a small filter that needs replacing…"

TmoeZ replied to DavidTTX's discussion 'The challenges of using the Dexcom software' in the group Dexcom Users
"Last time I checked this was not a Microsoft bashing site but everyone is entitled to their opinion. MACs are great, PCs are better. My guess is that since MS makes it so easy to develop against this would be the reason why Dexcom went the way it…"

TmoeZ replied to Love my kids's discussion 'Any advice for a new Dexcom G4 user?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I am very active, sports and workouts. I would assumed a 13 year old would be as well. I wear my Dexcom on my tricep and I use one of these to keep it protected during any sports activity. I also use a tegaderm patch…"
