"People certainly do take pump vacations for various reasons and I'm sure people on here will give good advice as to how to go about it. But I'm puzzled by your post in that you don't seem to particularly want to take a pump vacation.…"
"Are you talking about the duration of your insulin activity? For most of us it's somewhere between 3 and 4.5 hours but to find out your own personal duration you can just keep track when you do a correction of how long your glucose continues to…"
"Just to clarify, I definitely wasn't saying you were a "trouble maker", just you had referred to several new pumps in a short time and I know how organizations tend to think/work...if someone has more than average needs or complaints…"
"I dreaded the manual insertion for a long time, Taylor. When I actually tried it, it was no big deal.Well worth it for me to eliminate set problems. I didn't find too much difference between angled and straight plastic sets."
"I actually did check the particulars for the hospital near me. The things they were rating didn't seem like the things most of us care about. It almost seems like an evaluation of how a given hospital treats diabetic patients in several aspects…"
"Thanks, Karen. Interesting, though as I said above I don't know how relevant to the actual care one of us would get if admitted. Perhaps it says more about the endos associated with a given hospital than an actual hospital stay for a PWD."
"I've had that happen, but I usually was using my usual (stomach) area and when I switched to a whole new body part for a while, it helped the problem. But you used several different areas so that is really strange. This may or may not apply to…"
"Interesting. I wasn't able to click on the longer list without registering.
I find Kathy's experience with 4 of the hospitals interesting. I wonder if they take into account how PWD's are treated (diabetes wise) when they come into…"
"Wow! No, I never heard of such a thing (I use Contact Detach as well with no problems and vastly prefer it to the plastic sets which kink on me). My first thought was that it was a faulty batch, but you said it happened 3 and 6 months ago. I doubt…"
"I live in a small town so if I go out just in town even all day all I take is myself (I'm on a pump), my meter/remote and glucose tablets which are in my purse all the time. I can always come home if I have any problem. I was thinking to…"
"The most important thing you can do is start to work on getting your high A1C down. All the stories Type 1 women tell about pregnancy is that they need tight control. Do feel free to post questions on here asking for support and information in how…"
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?
