"To Rustydog: I don't see why you couldn't. I've never done exactly that but I've often jumped back and forth between different strategies and protocols. The key is to pay good attention and know what it is you're doing. A…"

"I too had erratic nighttime & early morning highs. Like Monika I've tried multiple injection strategies to manage my BG's. Including splitting my basal dose and offsetting the injection times. What seemed to work one week didn't…"

Lindsay replied to Kiminee's discussion 'of the pump on to pen' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"Hi Kiminee, I'm curious. Why did you decide to move from the pump to multiple injections? I do multiple injections with pens and have been putting off moving to a pump. I appreciate the pump gives tighter control but it is significantly more…"

Lindsay replied to Leslie Dare's discussion 'Injecting Through Clothing' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"I've done it before. But only occasionally under special conditions. And I know others who do it regularly. But common sense says it is not a particularly healthy practice. And all the books and doctors think it a bad idea. And it does seem an…"

novolog vs humalog 3ml cartridge pens?

My insulin prescription is for Novolog 3ml penfill cartridges. Been using Novolog penfill cartridges for years. I recently ended up in a place where only Humalog cartridges were available. I presumed all 3ml cartridges were equal and that I could use the Humalog cartridge in my NovoNorsk pen so I bought the Humalog cartridges. Wrong! Even though they are both 3ml cartridges I guess because they are each made by a different company pushing their own pen solutions neither cartridge will fit in…See More

Lindsay replied to Mikey's discussion 'Changing needles on your pen.' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"> How often do you change the needle on your pens? Nobody, anywhere recommends this but I only change the needle occasionally. Or when it starts to feel dull; or if it gets bent; or if the pen is used in a potentially dirty environment. Sometimes…"

Lindsay replied to gabby's discussion 'Descrimination from a GUIDANCE COUNCILOR!'
"Wow. Lots of great feedback. All of it is good even if not all of it is in total agreement. I didn't read each and every comment closely but I read enough to appreciate what a great opportunity this is for .... you, the CG, your school…"

Lindsay replied to Leslie Dare's discussion 'Injecting Through Clothing' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"Obviously, per many of the responses here, lots of people do inject through their clothes. Regularly. I had no idea it was so common. I've injected through my clothes only occasionally on an as necessary for the circumstance basis. I just…"

Lindsay replied to Leslie Dare's discussion 'Injecting Through Clothing' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"Wow. That's some fine sensation sensing. Really? I'm impressed. And envious. I was not aware one could do this. What is it precisely you discern? I would love to be able to foretell if an injection is going to be a bleeder. But I've…"

Lindsay commented on Leslie Dare's group 'Insulin Pen Users'
"Rosie, where are you injecting when you get these lumps? Do they occur only at certain injection sites and not at other sites? How often does this happen? How long do the pink lumps remain? How long do they ache? What kind of insulin are your using?…"

"PS - I've posted this suggestion to other threads but I think it worth posting again. In every city there are one or two or three or more drug stores that specialize in diabetes supplies and support. These are typically independent drug stores…"

Lindsay replied to CaKats's discussion 'Cases for Flex Pins. Cases for everything, meters, strips, logbook, lancets' in the group Insulin Pen Users
"There are many options depending on just how much you want to carry and whether you want to carry it altogether or in 1, 2 or 3 separate packages. For example, I use my glucometer more than anything else so I carry it (and all associated supplies)…"
