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
"Actually it isn't just the carb content of alcoholic drinks. It is the effect on the liver. You could say that the liver is distracted by its work to metabolize the alcohol, that the other job - releasing stored glucose gets forgotten by the…"
"Thank you. Maybe I should apply for a job with the TSA. That way at least there will be one more female agent for the female passengers! I do have frisking experience - police department. And there would be job security."
"Ideally, having the option to opt for a pat down should be enough. I've always been polite, I've lifted my shirt to show them my pump, and still some TSA agents insist that my devices can be exposed to their technology. When I read the TSA…"
"Yes, the TSA police does allow for anyone to opt out. However, I have experienced - as have others - reluctance on the part of agents to call a female agent to conduct the pat down. Often there has been insistence that our devices are safe in their…"
"Sam I disagree that it is a non-issue. The issue for me is that the TSA guidelines (for their agents) state that our devices - pups and CGM's - can safely be exposed to their imaging equipment. According to the device mfr's they…"
"I have a feeling that it would be easier to change the TSA training guide than to get all of the airports in the country to comply with a procedure (a la business class passengers). I am curious about what people with cardiac devices go through. I…"
"Zoe, I just checked the petition website. It failed to get enough signatures. I also read through the link originally shared, and in the TSA guidelines it says that our devices CAN be exposed to the imaging tech. We need to get that changed."
"Pumped, did you say anything about the cube display? I can have some patience with non-D non-healthcare workers being uneducated. But the uncaring and rather stupid things said by people in healthcare really steams me."
"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…"
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! →
