Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Eating Disorder Awareness Week: February 24 - March 2'
"Ah, I use the Desk Reference which just has the actual diagnoses and not all the ancillary material. (the actual DSM is way too expensive!). I'm glad to hear it's in there at least under "associate features" to anorexia. Better…"

"Thanks, Emily. It sounds like the Eating Disorder community (or at least some sections of it) is well aware of Diabulimia, and has made efforts to get the inclusion of its symptoms included in the manual that mental health professionals use to…"

Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Eating Disorder Awareness Week: February 24 - March 2'
"Sorry, Brian, but I'm looking at my copy of the DSM 5 and don't see it. Also what you linked does not mention it but merely refers, as I mentioned above, to "other specified feeding or eating disorder.""

Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Eating Disorder Awareness Week: February 24 - March 2'
"Emily, where does the term "ED-DMT1" come from? The ICD? Unfortunately there is no designation for diabulimia in the new DSM-5 that just came out (the manual of mental illnesses clinicians use for diagnosis). If someone doesn't meet…"

Zoe replied to Terry's discussion 'If you could write your own Rx's, would you visit your doctor?'
"Bad things would happen if you wrote your own prescriptions. Trust me, I know. AR is not the only one with a crazy past!"

Zoe replied to Terry's discussion 'If you could write your own Rx's, would you visit your doctor?'
"I believe it is if you want a pump, Karen, that Medicare requires three times a year visits. And no, I wouldn't visit if not required. When I lived in Guatemala I could get labs done without a doctor's order and also get any medications…"

Zoe replied to Shadow's discussion 'Clunky Ping Remote' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"It seems the same size as other meters I've had in the past, though perhaps now they have smaller ones? I always take it with me 1. because it's my meter and I need to be able to test and 2. because I always use it to bolus. It seems some…"

Zoe replied to madison's discussion 'Protein high?'
"For many of us we can't bolus successfully for rice, Madison. You need to evaluate the results two hours after eating. If you are consistently too high two hours after eating rice, then maybe it isn't working. I have given up sugar, rice,…"

"Just out of curiosity, don't you usually carry your meter with you anyway for testing?"

Zoe replied to Shannon90's discussion 'New to Animas Pump' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"The Vibe without the CGM is called a Ping. I have had a Ping for 4 years and am in the process of getting another one as I'm not interested in a CGM either. I use the metal sets (Contact Detach). I tried all the plastic sets and found I…"

Zoe replied to mohe0001's discussion 'Pump question' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"It isn't a matter of a doctor "letting you" do something or not. It is your health and your body and even your pump. Doctors can be great advisers and supports, but in the end most of us find we know a lot more than they do about how…"
Feb 15
Zoe replied to mohe0001's discussion 'Pump question' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"Nope, not really..lol. The whole point of having a pump is to have the flexibility of being able to program it for varied basal needs, I:C needs and ISF. It isn't just a matter of doing arithmetic for you; it's a matter of tailoring your…"

Zoe replied to Stuart's discussion 'Anxiety attack diabetes... yes/no?'
"I always ask to have a local without the epinephrine. I figured why do I want something that makes me anxious when I'm already anxious. I started doing that long before I got diagnosed with arrhythmia (mainly rapid heart beat); now I just say I…"
Feb 15
Zoe replied to mohe0001's discussion 'Pump question' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I'm a little confused, mohe; you say you find the pump calculations unhelpful. Didn't you program the formulas into your pump yourself? It is calculating doses based on the I:C, ISF and basal rates you have determined. If they are not…"

Zoe replied to madison's discussion 'Protein high?'
"I wouldn't personally blame the protein. First of all 60 grams for a meal is a lot. If I go anywhere near 50 my results are unpredictable. There is something Bernstein calls "the law of small numbers" where big intakes can lead to big…"

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
