"Oops sorry so my insulin comments are inapplicable, however insulin might, in fact, be the preferred treatment."

Zoe replied to Vanessa's discussion 'Lows with Metformin and Novonorm?'
"I'm not sure what "Novonorm" is - is that the same as Novolog; in other words insulin? I read your post in another forum; have you been tested to see if you are, in fact, Type 1? It would explain a lot!"
yesterday
Zoe replied to Matti's discussion 'Blood sugar and insulin discussions from non-diabetics'
"Well that's good at least, that the restaurant admitted their behavior was inappropriate! I stopped eating sugar due to an eating disorder 13 years before my D diagnosis. Ironically, when I questioned whether something had sugar in it sometimes…"
yesterday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Study: TuDiabetes member attitudes and experiences'
"I'd love to do this; I just e-mailed her."
Friday
Zoe replied to lh378's discussion 'food scale'
"I also don't bother with a scale and making conversions of numbers. I know the amounts in many foods I eat regularly, mark my cookbooks with carb counts and if I don't know I have a list I use or look it up on calorieking.com"
Friday
Zoe replied to jnick303's discussion 'Just started Humalog and...'
"Try Calorieking.com"
Friday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Ask Manny!!!'
"Thanks, Linda, I appreciate the offer, but I'll stick down here with my end-of-the-alphabet peers until you guys figure out a way to rotate or include!"
Thursday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Ask Manny!!!'
"Thanks for the response, Emily. Yeah, I know, "easy to say, harder to do". I do want to acknowledge how nice it is to send out birthday greetings at all. And I'm glad you're looking at a way to make it more equitable. Would be…"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Ask Manny!!!'
"I'm not nearly knowledgeable enough about computer systems to know what's possible, but just off the top of my head: Compile a chronological list of birthdays which would take a bit of work but if enough people helped out wouldn't be…"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Nettie's discussion 'To Change Insulins or Not To Change Insulins, this is the question'
"Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but if you switch to Humalog I think you will need to switch to Lantus as well. Can you combine the old style insulins with the new ones?"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Ask Manny!!!'
"If you knew what I went through to change it to Zoe....lol Seriously, though, my point is that some people shouldn't "always get a birthday greeting" and some people "never get one" I'm pretty comfortable in my place in…"
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Nettie's discussion 'To Change Insulins or Not To Change Insulins, this is the question'
"They're pretty similar, as are the three fast acting insulins, just some people do better on one or the other."
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Ask Manny!!!'
"Unfortunate, but good to know. Sounds like you might need a new system to spread the birthday cheer around a bit."
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Nettie's discussion 'To Change Insulins or Not To Change Insulins, this is the question'
"No, I've been on a pump for 3 years, Nettie, but I did at one time. It worked just fine, but I did switch to Levemir when I was concerned about possible reasons for weight gain."
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Ask Manny!!!'
"I don't know if I've ever gotten a birthday message, Linda, certainly not for a few years. :("
Wednesday
Zoe replied to Nettie's discussion 'To Change Insulins or Not To Change Insulins, this is the question'
"Your doctor is right; you were on a very old insulin regimen and a basal/bolus combination (Lantus and Humalog is long acting for background insulin and Humalog for meals) is the best types to control blood sugar and also give you more flexibility…"

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
