Now hopefully, I can attach the article, but in a nutshell it said that 75% of healthcare spending on diabetes is related to treatment for the longterm complications - something like,Oh I don't…Continue
I got the email from TuDiabetes - a newsletter type. I decided to check out the TuD store - and what did I find? PUG T-SHIRTs! I'm telling myself they were put on the store "shelf" for me personally.Continue
"Yeah, the tubing does "use up" some insulin. But as to my TDD it has gone down. On MDI I used to have to either eat up to accommodate a full unit, or wait until my bg was high enough to take a whole unit for correction. With the pump, I…"
"tony, try Skin Tac. I use it with my Dexcom sensor and I can get close to 3weeks before it even shows any signs of peeling. Since I pay out ofpocket for my Dexcom, I try to get as much time out a senor as possible. The Skin Tac works wonderfully and…"
"User Input - that's why I so loved my Cozmore pump. John Walsh was involved in the design and features. As a CDE and pumper himself his input really made that pump something that worked for PWD's rather than engineers and/or MD's"
"I like that "traffic light" test. I guess I will never be satisfied with any pump unless it is my Cozmore 1800. That pump had so many wonderful and useful features. I especially like the hypo manager that helped me to know exactly how many…"
"When I went to pumping my A1C went from 6.4 to 5.5 I had always done 10-15 tests a day, and on MDI I had to wait until the bg was high enough to accommodate a while unit. If all I need is 0.10 U that's all I get with a pump. I have a great A1C…"
"Laddie, like you I have the Animas. I don't like the remote meter, it is too slow during the fingerstick process, harder to read (the brightness button does illuminate as well s I'd like), and the meter is bulky. I got used to manually…"
"I have the Ping and Dexcom. For a while as I fell in love with my Dexcom, I was excited at the prospect of the Vibe. In my experience, the Dexcom is fatr more accurate than anything else out there, but still has some times when it is…"
"I'm always curious as to what people4 consider are carbs. For me, I was taught if it could move under its own power (or was related to something that could, like an egg is related to a chicken) it is protein. Anything plant based is carb…"
"No need to apologize. I remember once meeting a new nephrologist (I was dx'd at 15 with near kidney failure, they figured it was from birth, and then Dx'd with type 1 17 years later). Anyway, the doctor comes into the exam room, looks at…"
"We are all different, and I am thinking that muscle mass plays a roll. If someone saw the BMI for a top basketball player, say Iverson, one could think oooops overweight. But one look at his body and nope!.. When I was dancing professionally still,…"
"I would love for the ADA to take a more active role in educating the general public and the media on what causes a diabetes diagnosis. For type 1, information on the fact that it is an auto-immune disease that can strike at any age, that insulin,…"
"Thank you (tongue in cheek she says "I can be clever" or snarky). I know that insulin is a recumbent creation, but something that keeps people alive is so much more expensive per dose than ...say...the little blue pill?"
"I'm often saying that the overall ignorance about diabetes allows people to feel superior: I.E. "I behave, I eat tight blah blah b;ah so I won't get diabetes." Too bad they're wrong. Type 1 strikes out of the blue (no D of…"
"so let's see if I did this right Why Use A Pump? Mon, 11/19/2012 - 11:49 -- Diabetesnet The use of insulin pumps has risen dramatically over the last 30 years to nearly a million people worldwide. The number of satisfied users continues to grow…"
My neighbor has 3 pugs she rescued from a puppy mill - Teeny, Tiny, and Bitsy. All were terribly abused, but once they found out they were safe have become extremely affectionate. Shen she is sour of town, I walk them on a triple leash and they prance around like royalty. If it's below 30 degrees, they have to wear their sweaters. If it's below 10 degrees, they have to wear dog boots, which they do not like. Bitsy hides under the bed and has to be lured out with a treat. Then Tiny also wants a treat but he is obese and on a diet.
So by the time I get them ready I'm almost exhausted.
Thanks, my Blue Merle Collie, Lacey, was the most beautiful dog we've ever had. I love looking at my avatar; we have a water-color painting of her in our living room. Now we have 3 Golden Retrievers, a fun breed. I'll bet that Pugs are fun also. I've had different breeds, but never Pugs. I'm missing having a smaller dog right now...
US Hispanics are often portrayed in the press as a single, monolithic group. But anyone who has spent any time in San Francisco’s Mission District or the Bronx can tell you, we’re not all the same. Now we’re finding out Read on! →
