Zoe replied to Debbie Anderson's discussion 'Struggling with losing weight and my type 2.'
"Just to clarify, "Type 1.5" also known as LADA doesn't have characteristics of Type 2. It is Type 1, just with a slower onset."

Zoe replied to les's discussion 'Newbie' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"You are in charge of your care, your endo shouldn't be telling you that you can't have a pump. I don't see any endo, just a PCP. Nobody but me should make major decisions about how I manage my D!"

Zoe replied to debsgsd's discussion 'Meter Results'
"Meters are allowed to have up to a 20% variation, so this is well within that limit. They are working on changing that regulation. Some of us come to trust one or another meter significantly but usually it's when there is a wider difference or…"

David Lee replied to Zoe's discussion 'Contact Detach - 6mm or 8mm' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Well since my last post this is what has been going on. Animas thinks it is a site issue and my doctor thinks it may be a pump issue. They told me to use a site that I don't use to see how it worked because they were leaning towards scar…"

Siri replied to Zoe's discussion 'Contact Detach - 6mm or 8mm' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Hi, David Lee. When I switched to 6 mm steel cannulas from ordinary teflon ones, I stopped using my stomach and started using the sides, i.e. the area under my arms from under my rib cage and down to the hip. I have less body fat there, but it seems…"

Zoe commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"You really want to get your numbers down, Nichole; staying in the range of 250 on a regular basis is a set-up for complications! Do you have a good endo and/or cde to work with? Three months should be enough time to get your pump doses tweaked. I…"

Zoe replied to Hummingbird's discussion 'To pump or not to pump' in the group LADA Diabetics
"Yes, I do, and I'm sorry about all that you are dealing with. I think it could be a couple or a few weeks until your doses are ideal. But in general you will want to start your doses conservatively, so you are more likely to deal with highs for…"

Zoe replied to Marypat's discussion 'Does the medical team at your local ER know how to care for Type 1 patients?'
"Way to go, Cinderfella!"

Zoe replied to Shark's discussion 'Animus Pump Enquiry' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Yes, I agree, Ingrid, though I generally just uncap for baths and don't worry about the canula end. But I re-use mine so it would be easy to just save two, one for each end. I think I'd be more concerned about it in a public place like a…"

Zoe replied to Shark's discussion 'Animus Pump Enquiry' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"There is a 3-pronged plastic clip that you insert into the space left for the insertion site, though it is not, in fact, an "open hole". I'm a little confused by your other question about a "cap for the needle". There is no…"

Zoe replied to Helmut's discussion 'A1C in the 4s'
"Different people, and different medical professionals define "lows" differently; some "under 70" and some "under 60". Defining a low at "under 60" doesn't affect perception of lows. Lack of perception of…"
Monday
Zoe replied to Hummingbird's discussion 'To pump or not to pump' in the group LADA Diabetics
"Ok, I'm confused, Hummingbird. Are you on MDI (shots) now? Are you asking about pump vs MDI or pump vs oral meds? I'm not sure what you mean by not wanting your body to work harder than it has to, but high blood sugars is definitely doing…"
Monday
Zoe replied to Hummingbird's discussion 'To pump or not to pump' in the group LADA Diabetics
"Hi hummingbird; I hope you are recovering well from your treatments. I love my pump and couldn't imagine going back to MDI; like many of us (though not all). You don't give any detail about why you have had a hard time getting your A1C…"

Zoe replied to Marypat's discussion 'Does the medical team at your local ER know how to care for Type 1 patients?'
"I live in a rural area where our local hospital has almost shut down numerous times and for reasons beyond budget considerations. I wouldn't trust them with a hangnail, but would ask transport to the hospital in the large town an hour away. But…"
Sunday
Zoe commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"I was just wondering how they determined you were Type 1, since your insulin resistance sounds more like type 2."

Zoe replied to Jen's discussion 'Breakfast ideas'
"I'm impressed, Jen, with how flexible you're being about all the food limitations. And I'm very excited for you that you might finally be getting a handle on all this allergy stuff!"

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
