"I believe we had a lengthy discussion of this topic not too long ago. My questions would be: How is this different than the failed attempt an inhaled insulin? and What about dosing? I believe when we discussed this last we were told that there were…"
"I don't know anything about the Omnipod, so I'll leave that to others. But your I:C ratios are not something the doctor can "instruct you" on. You need to find out what they are for yourself, based on trial and error. You can…"
"Definitely off topic but if, as I suspect, 3D printers are really early prototypes for what Star Trek (and every other SF story) called "replicators" couldn't that change the world? (hopefully in a good way unlike cell phones and…"
"That's one of the great joys of spending time in another culture!
We certainly already have the technology for our devices to update themselves; my computer does it so I don't see why other things couldn't. I read a lot of science…"
"I don't either, Khurt, but bought my copy pre-kindle. I just got mine in November and haven't bought any non-fiction reference type books. How easy is it to look things up in the index and then go to the info you want? I just ordered the…"
"I barely function when I first wake up and was glad I managed just to mindlessly change the pump time right after I tested.
I think the whole thing is silliness. You should have seen me trying to explain it to my teacher in Guatemala. She'd…"
"I've found, Nichole, that if I order on the website, there is always a delay. When I follow up with a phonecall asking about it the Animas people always admit that the online system is flawed. So if I order online I always watch the site and if…"
"I'm so sorry this happened to you; it sounds truly frightening. My first thought on reading was stroke, and then when you said they checked for that I thought severe low blood sugar. I would definitely do some follow up with your doctor to make…"
"I wouldn't wait on the Accu-Chek rep, Khurt, but would start keeping careful records and slowly start tweaking doses. I recommend Pumping Insulin by John Walsh if you don't have it yet. For ISF you want to see if you come down to target…"
"I too have heard lots of people having hunger issues and am very grateful that I don't have that problem and don't even experience the extreme hunger most people seem to have when low. I have mixed feelings about the cause, though. I…"

Yes, Depression is more common in people with Type 1 Diabetes. But nobody can tell you whether you just have, as you say, "the blues", or clinical depression which is called…"
Thanks anyway.I have started a discussion about the play button not working and so far have received no replies.I was composing my own tunes for the reminders which I use all the time.I get so tired of Mary Had A Little Lamb.If you know what I mean?
Hi Zoe I was just reading some of the posts online about EZ ManagerMax.My Ezmanager max3.06 does not work my custom composer.When I hit the play button the tune doesnot play.I called Animas and they told me they would send the 3.07 version.What is the difference between the two.I just hope the 3.07 version works better.
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.
