Zoe replied to artwoman's discussion 'Animas ping changed time after battery change'
"I had been getting an instruction to re-set my time after my battery change and I just automatically did so, thinking it was normal procedure. Then I happened to be talking to Animas about something unrelated and mentioned this. They said that was a…"
Zoe replied to etta amy's discussion '"Battery Low" warning' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"This is a dumb question, but are you sure you didn't confuse "pump battery low" with "meter battery low"? I ask because I've done that myself!"
Zoe and Leoni are now friends
Zoe replied to Leoni's discussion 'Overwhelmed'
"Hi Leoni. I'm sorry you feel as you do and applaud you for coming on here and telling us about it. You are in good company here with 35,000 diabetics who understand what you go through with your D every day and I reassure you there are many who…"

Zoe replied to krystal parker's discussion 'Basal Testing' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I think basal testing is useful when you are starting out, but for me, I find if I experience a change in my numbers which is a pattern, I will tweak the basal dose for the period two hours before the problem time and that usually does the trick."

Zoe replied to sister's discussion 'Low Carb Dieting'
"Many bottled dressings have sugar in them; I suggest you read the labels. Or you can just have oil and vinegar which is no-carb and delicious."

Zoe replied to Robyn's discussion 'How many Test Strips do you use in 1 month? Just Curious.'
""That's pretty compulsive" Angivan, on this website we have a culture of not judging how other people manage their D. I also test 8-10 times a day. I find testing in the morning, before and two hours after meals, at bedtime and if I…"

Zoe replied to bojibridge's discussion 'Quick question about pumps'
"I'm with you, bojibridge. I'm due for a new pump now and I thought about the t-slim as well for it's slimmer profile, but love my remote!"

Zoe replied to bojibridge's discussion 'Quick question about pumps'
"Ah, that is very different; I thought the Ping was the only one with a remote that does everything the pump itself does."

Zoe replied to krisa's discussion 'Are my number too high already? When to start insulin?'
"vpg, I've been on this board for 6 years and people give all sorts of advice based on their own experience. We all acknowledge that we are not doctors, but personally I have learned more that has helped me manage my D on here than I ever…"

Zoe replied to bojibridge's discussion 'Quick question about pumps'
"It does?? A remote that you can use to do everything the pump does? Which you use as a meter and then it plugs in your BG and computes your dose and boluses? I've never heard that it does."

Zoe replied to Linny's discussion 'Testing Pumps!'
"I haven't worn clothes to sleep in for years, Meee, but I tried the "under the pillow" thing at first and ended up with me and my cat wrapped in tubing, so now I do the sleep shorts/thermals thing and it's fine. I announce to my…"

Zoe replied to Linny's discussion 'Testing Pumps!'
"Hi Linny and good luck ahead of time on your decision to make a change after 20 years! Most people are very happy they did and love their pumps. Also, most people say that the tubing, which they worried about the most quickly became a non-issue. I…"

Zoe replied to gretchen's discussion 'Personal SGIs'
"To be honest, I haven't found that the GI has much impact on Type 1's; only in the sense that high GI foods are often also high carb foods which of course affect both types! For example the pizza and cereal are listed above as…"

Zoe replied to Adele's discussion 'Daily BG checking'
"I think for anyone on insulin especially it is necessary to test more than 4 times a day. You need to check before meals to determine insulin dose. You should check on waking and before going to bed to make sure you are in range and correct if not…"

Zoe replied to Jen's discussion 'Zero carb meals'
"Hi Jen and Happy New Year. I generally don't bolus for protein or fat and assume this is only necessary for very low carb diets. (but others seem to do so and my belief is that it simply works itself out in your I:C). However, one of my…"

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.
