Zoe replied to Catvet's discussion 'Insulin'
"Very adorable kitten,David! I was just wondering about your procedure for ascertaining I:C; I've never seen it done that way. If you didn't dose until your BG peaked, somewhere between 1 and 2 hours after eating, wouldn't the I:C…"

Zoe replied to Catvet's discussion 'Insulin'
"Hi Catvet (some of my favorite people!) A couple thoughts: First I encourage you if you haven't already to check out the Pregnancy group on here as managing BG while pregnant has very specific and fairly rigid parameters. As for mealtime…"

Zoe replied to JohnG's discussion 'I just recived the new (Genteel) lancing device'
"I thought that samples from other parts of the body are not considered as reliable as fingers?"
Zoe replied to Jen's discussion 'Metal sets'
"Jen, I certainly can't give any input to the complexity of your allergies, let alone a solution. But, unfortunately, I think you are right. I've been using metal sets exclusively for a while now and as you know I swear by them; they seem…"
Zoe replied to Meda-Kay's discussion 'New ping ordered' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Yes, my plan is not a standard Medicare supplement either; it's an integrated CalPers Medicare system. But I do need to say that the comment I got from Anthem about them not being able to cover if Medicare denies was related to something…"
Zoe replied to dina's discussion 'purcaching infusion set online and Rx request'
"Unfortunately, Dina, until you are able to get a prescription for your infusion sets, it sounds like you might have to go back to shots. I assume you have already done that. I hope you are able to get a prescription and get your infusion sets soon.…"
Zoe replied to Alex 's discussion 'Smoothies for Breakfast'
"I would no doubt be just as high if I attempted 40 carbs at breakfast! I am at my most carb intolerant at that time of day."
Zoe replied to KMB's discussion 'Bedtime bgl'
"I had to laugh because last night after reading this post, I tested at bedtime and I was...yep, 96! I woke up this morning at a very nice 111. And no, my BG isn't always that perfect!"
Zoe replied to KMB's discussion 'Bedtime bgl'
"For me, that would be an absolutely perfect number at bedtime. But what is important is how stable you are overnight. If your blood sugar tends to drop overnight, then you would be concerned. If it's relatively stable you should be fine!"
Zoe replied to Sarah's discussion 'LOWS!'
"No, that is not the case. I adjust my basals regularly and have made like one I:C adjustment in about a year. But what's important is that you make one adjustment at a time. and then sit with it a couple days. If you make more than one…"

Zoe replied to Sarah's discussion 'LOWS!'
"My suggestion, Sarah is that you not redo I:C too right now. You have tended previously to react to "problem numbers" by making too many changes at once and then you roller coaster and get frustrated. Just make the small change in your…"

Zoe replied to Meda-Kay's discussion 'New ping ordered' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I would assume if you were someone new to Medicare and first buying a pump you would definitely be on their 5 year system. It is just the fact that I got it before Medicare that makes me wonder. And Medicare at least in my case does know I have a…"

Zoe replied to Meda-Kay's discussion 'New ping ordered' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Terry, I know you're considering the Vibe - or perhaps a different integrated system, but it sounds like we're in a similar situation in having acquired our Ping while on private insurance and now being on Medicare. Do you know if that…"

Zoe replied to Fun Mom's discussion 'LADA diagnosis in GTA'
"LADA is not an official diagnosis. If you do the tests Marie recommends you will be diagnosed as Type 1 even if it is slow onset (LADA)."

Zoe replied to mohe0001's discussion 'Any T1s ever been pregnant?'
"Yep, you had me totally confused. I thought of you as a male in his 60s or 70s."

"Sarah, who is suggesting you should change basal rates "all the time?""

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.
