cchelms replied to Sam I am's discussion 'Complications--not the common ones we are warned about....' in the group Type1 for 30 Plus Years
"TV, that's interesting. My creatinine levels are always excellent and the only heart valve issue I've had is an "innocent" murmur. Of course, I haven't had that checked lately but I've had anemia for over 20 years. It…"

cchelms replied to Sam I am's discussion 'Complications--not the common ones we are warned about....' in the group Type1 for 30 Plus Years
"Frank, I'd love to hear what you've found out about this. I have had chronic anemia for decades now - since my early 20s. I am 47 and have had diabetes for 31 (almost 32, in a couple of weeks!) years. I've never heard anyone mention…"

cchelms replied to ladybell89's discussion 'Depression and regret over being stupid for too long'
"Debe, I'm so glad the link helped you. Looked like lots of great stuff over there. Both diabetes and depression are daily struggles, but at least we have each other to lean on. Hugs to you! Caren"

cchelms replied to JDavid's discussion 'New Member Intros (please)' in the group Needle Diabetics
"Clare, you will see in my reply to Michael that I was sort of "given permission" to reuse as a young person (and young diabetic). That served me well through the days when I was young, broke and had terrible insurance (if any). I guess it…"

cchelms replied to JDavid's discussion 'New Member Intros (please)' in the group Needle Diabetics
"You've convinced me! I definitely want to give it a go. I was in a clinical trial once and had some issues with the infusion set (sort of an allergic reaction), which is what I think spooked me on trying a pump (which otherwise seems like it…"

cchelms replied to JDavid's discussion 'New Member Intros (please)' in the group Needle Diabetics
"Clare, I didn't have benefit of the tiny needles because we had to use the equipment given to us by the study, but I think that would have made a difference. The pens were really convenient, I have to say. I know some young people who are using…"

cchelms replied to JDavid's discussion 'New Member Intros (please)' in the group Needle Diabetics
"You know, Michael, I think I'm just OCD enough to really dig the CGM. I wondered if it would be worth using if I weren't using a pump. I have a co-worker who uses a pump + CGM and she said it's almost too much equipment for her. :) I…"

cchelms replied to Linda's discussion 'Boston here I come!!!' in the group Type1 for 30 Plus Years
"Thank you, Linda. There should be plenty of anecdotal evidence supporting my diagnosis, at least. I hope you find out your beta cells are still functioning a bit. It seems like even a tiny bit of production really helps to protect us from the worst…"

cchelms replied to ryan's discussion 'how many uses per syringe for you?' in the group Needle Diabetics
"This sounds like me. I've been using syringes for 30 years and only used one syringe for one dose for, like, the first couple of years. Since then, I've been using syringes until they get dull and start to hurt or bruise my skin - usually…"

cchelms replied to JDavid's discussion 'New Member Intros (please)' in the group Needle Diabetics
"Hi, everyone. I'm Caren and I've been a Type 1 for 30 (well, 30-1/2) years now. I started off with Regular and NPH (back in the pork insulin days), then started on Regular and Lente (I think) and then regular and Ultralente and now take…"

"When I started taking Lantus, I was switching from Ultralente, which I took twice a day, so I started taking the Lantus twice a day. For the purposes of a research study, I started taking Lantus once a day, in the evening. I noticed I have to be…"
