"I adjust my levels similarly to TS - I generally do running and cycling. Under 1 hour exercise I don't adjust my levels at all, 1-2 hour duration I would drop it to ~75%, 2+ hours I would drop it to ~50%. Or course I am also refueling for…"

"Davet, I'm pretty sure that your Aviva is our Nano, which uses the Performa strips. A call to Accu-Check will confirm that your meter is compatible. We used to have Bayer, but I'm not sure what happened. Good luck!"

"Thanks, I had looked at the form but they seem to have different names in different countries - the Nano strips are just called Aviva here, not Performa so I couldn't match it up on the form. Thanks for the information."

"Go HERE and download the NDSS Order Form where you can see what test strips are available. I use the Nano which uses Performa strips, so that's definitely available."

Moving to Australia, what do I need to know/do?

Hi,I'm a Type 1 pumper currently living in the UK.  I will be moving to Sydney in June for an expected couple of years deployment and need to find out how I am going to manage my diabetes when I am there.I do have medical insurance so the costs should be covered, but I have no idea about the process of getting insulin and supplies, do I need to register with a doctor etc.  My current diabetes team I see maybe once a year (which is how I like it) and I only see my GP to get a prescription for…See More
