Hiccups?!?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Brian (bsc) Aug 1, 2013. 1 Reply

Does anyone else get hiccups when their blood sugar is high? If my BG is ever above 300 I get the hiccups and NOTHING will stop them. I've tried everything. I just find it interesting that 90% of the…Continue

Good carb free drinks???

Has anyone found any good tasting reasonably priced beverages that are carb free? Diet pop is good but I get tired of it and it's quite honestly not healthy! Non diabetics can just go grab a sweet…Continue

"It wasn't too complicated. When I inject basal, I inject two equal amounts, one at night, one in the morning. When I transition to my pump, I do it in the morning and do not inject my morning basal. I then program my pump to deliver 50% of my…"

"That's great that you figured out how to use both... was it complicated to do that when you have long acting basal to add basal in from the pump too?"

"Christopher, it is nice to hear that someone is doing that type of stuff.. MDI and low carb (and my Dexcom) is working well for me, but it took me a while to tweak my basal rate."

"I'm on mdi- I haven't use a pump and I prefer mdi for many reasons. I think you can ask your endo/doc about going to mdi for a while. You can always go back to your pump if you want to. I think the Joslin program sounds like a good idea :)"

Switch from pump to pens?

Hi all!! So I know there are already a few forums on here about taking pump vacations or switching back to shots but I can't quite find what I'm looking for. Is there anyone out there that has done this and why? I was diagnosed at seven yrs old and we switched to a pump a year after. I loved the pump sooo much then but now at 19 almost 20 yrs old I feel like I need something new.

"I agree with PedsRN. I have been an RN for 30 years, in addition to having T1 since I was a small child. My personal analogy of diabetes is it is like an out of control pit bull. If you don't control it it WILL control you. Even if you do…"
