"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…"
"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.""
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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,…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
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.

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.
