Zoe replied to Bree's discussion 'Pump Vacation Anxiety'
"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.…"

Zoe replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'Food Peak Time?'
"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…"

Zoe replied to Ethan10183's discussion 'Contact detach issue - Anyone else run into this?'
"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…"
Zoe replied to GailD's discussion 'Depressed...'
"Many of us believe that complications arise with significant time spent over 140. That is equivalent to an A1C of 6.5."
Zoe replied to Taylor's discussion 'Inset disaster.'
"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."
Zoe replied to Lloyd's discussion 'Best U.S. Hospitals for Diabetes'
"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…"
Zoe replied to Lloyd's discussion 'Best U.S. Hospitals for Diabetes'
"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."
Zoe replied to Taylor's discussion 'Inset disaster.'
"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…"
Zoe replied to Lloyd's discussion 'Best U.S. Hospitals for Diabetes'
"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…"
Zoe replied to Ethan10183's discussion 'Contact detach issue - Anyone else run into this?'
"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…"
Zoe replied to Taylor's discussion 'What do you bring on day trips?'
"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…"

"Great news lots! Good luck on the Monday appointment."
Zoe replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'Type 1 and we're planning to have a baby!'
"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…"

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.
