Zoe replied to Atish's discussion 'Diabetics considered as handicapped?'
"Oh, SO well put, Jen. Everyone should read this response twice."
yesterday
Zoe replied to Atish's discussion 'Diabetics considered as handicapped?'
"I think "handicapped" is such a loaded word. (Perhaps Jen will speak to that when she logs into the thread.) Many of us, rightfully so, want to assert our independence and abilities to live a normal life (and thus not be…"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Atish's discussion 'Diabetics considered as handicapped?'
"Just to clarify when I was referring to "rights" under the ADA I was referring to things like "reasonable accommodations" that have to be provided by employers, not financial benefits. I think all of this very much varies by…"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Atish's discussion 'Diabetics considered as handicapped?'
"I think it matters in what way you are using the term handicap. I don't consider myself a handicapped person and feel I can do anything anyone else can do. (But then, so do some people with handicaps!). However, in the U.S. Diabetes is covered…"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Steve Mann's discussion 'Type 1 and Weight Loss'
"I think what Christopher and I are saying, Steve, is that if you are eating fairly high amounts of carbs or even moderate amounts, lowering that intake will help with weight loss. (In addition it means less insulin needed which also helps.)"
Tuesday
Zoe replied to crys's discussion 'help... hi ketones'
"I think if he is sneaking food and not bolusing for it, that would drive up his blood sugar high enough and if there were no corrections, it would stay high long enough to cause ketones. I guess, that is, in effect, the same as not getting insulin."
Tuesday
Zoe replied to Steve Mann's discussion 'Type 1 and Weight Loss'
"I've always had a hard time maintaining my weight and I am older than you and a woman, so it just gets harder. I find it works best if I keep my carbs as low as reasonable - less carbs = less insulin = less weight. I also differ from most…"
Tuesday
Zoe replied to Meesh's discussion 'Low Blood sugar and extreme Fatigue?'
"If you are hypothyroid are you being treated? Do you regularly monitor your levels to make sure you are stable?"
Tuesday
Zoe replied to artwoman's discussion 'Ads for Diabetes products and meds'
"We are all different, lh378. Some people eat 30 carbs a day, some 45 carbs a meal, which is still significantly less than the "typical American diet". We each find our own way and what works for us and while we want to share our…"
Monday
Zoe replied to lh378's discussion 'The Top 23 Low Carb Snacks - how about "portable" or "to go" low carb snacks?'
"We are indeed all different, th378. I would only use 15 carbs if my blood sugar continued dropping or wouldn't come up. I take 2 glucose tablets (8 grams) for a moderate low (50s or 60s) and 3 for anything below that (12 grams). The first…"
Sunday
Zoe replied to Marps's discussion 'Poem: To Love a Diabetic'
"Sounds like the government. By the way this isn't actually a poem."
Sunday
Zoe replied to Badlands's discussion 'Animas Customer Service' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I think they are better at phone than online communication in general. I have had all good experiences when I've called but when I order from the online website it sometimes gets stalled and I have to follow up with a phonecall. I would go…"

Zoe replied to lh378's discussion 'The Top 23 Low Carb Snacks - how about "portable" or "to go" low carb snacks?'
"Oh, now I understand better, that it "mimics" hypoglycemia and the solution is protein, not carbs. I've heard of fibro fog, and other conditions that have cognitive issues, like CFS which my good friend died of and HepC as well. I…"

Zoe replied to Marps's discussion 'Poem: To Love a Diabetic'
"I guess TuD didn't have SPAM rules in 2010."
Sep 13
Zoe replied to artwoman's discussion 'Ads for Diabetes products and meds'
"Kind of ironic, don't you think, that the same doctors who introduce insulin as a "threat" or "punishment" if you are not "good". (Can we say infantalizing?) are surprised when their patients are reluctant to start…"
Sep 13
Zoe replied to lh378's discussion 'The Top 23 Low Carb Snacks - how about "portable" or "to go" low carb snacks?'
"Thanks for sharing about this, Judith; you are right, I was completely unaware of the other sx of fibromyalgia you mention. So are you talking basically about low blood sugars if you don't eat on a regular basis? And do low carb snacks help…"

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.

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.

Best,
David
