Diabetes teaches us about interdependence. We all think we are autonomous beings, but we all depend on others. As a diabetic, it's just more obvious. I need refrigeration to live.

6.3 - I was hoping for a little bit lower, but hey, I'll take it.

Posted on January 27, 2010 at 7:59am 2 Comments

My last one was 6.1, before that 6.0. I went through a period of a lot of adjustments to my I:C ratio a month ago, I think that's what made it go up a bit. But hey, I'll take it. Gonna shoot for a 5.9 next time.

Gaah - numbers just KEEP CREEPING UP

Posted on June 12, 2009 at 7:47am 3 Comments

I guess the party is over -



Just starting yesterday, my BG is continually creeping up - I have increased my Lantus to 12 units, and my carb correction to 1u/15g of carbs, yet after meals, I can get it down to 100 or so 3 hours later, sometimes with a little exercise, and then it just starts creeping upwards. Did so last night, it's doing so right now. I'll take a correction, but MAN this is getting annoying. Starting on the pump soon, so I feel like I need to get a handle on this… Continue

Started my Dexcom Seven Plus today

Posted on May 21, 2009 at 12:30pm 2 Comments

I am cyborg! Started with my Seven Plus CGM today - so far, I've learned that when I eat I drop low for about 15 minutes, then rush up high, then slowly level off. Interesting. Looking forward to the overnight results.

Insurance Follies

Posted on May 14, 2009 at 7:26am 2 Comments

Sp get this - my insurance (Aetna) approved me for a CGM - it arrives tomorrow - but Animas is saying they don't think I will qualify for a pump. They had me get a fasting C-peptide test, which came in higher than anyone expected - just within the range of normal, which is great news - I'm still in my honeymoon period... but Animas thinks Aetna won't approve the pump now. Aetna officially requires a C-peptide below 110% of the low end of normal, or presence of beta antibodies, to approve a… Continue

Why so high?

Posted on May 6, 2009 at 4:28pm 2 Comments

I'm ridiculously high today. Over 200 after lunch. Took a correction, it only dropped me about 30 points. Maybe this insulin pen is a dud? Weirdness. I think I'll go back to my "kiddie pen" that does half units - I seem to do a lot better with it. I hope the pump works out well... days like today are a drag.

I had planned on going to physician's assistant school at Emory until I found out how much tuition was, hahaha! I go to Argosy University (formerly known as Georgia School of Professional Psychology). I finish this June with my master's in community counseling.

How long will you have to wait for the results on the C-peptide? Have you chosen which pump you want to get?
