"Hi April - I had started out at the Diabetes America clinic in Clear Lake, which then closed. I moved to the clinic in Pasadena, where I met my current doctor. She has just left the clinic, but has started her own clinic up in the med center. I…"
"I've been using the Omnipod for 4 years this month. I used a Minimed tubed pump before that and was only on shots for about 3 months post-diagnosis until I went on a pump. The omnipod makes me actually forget I've got diabetes most of the…"
"I'm the same way. My morning basal doubles from 0.4u/hr to 0.8u/hr (used to be 1.0u/hr) at 5:30am and continues until about an hour after my alarm goes off (which happens to correspond to when I eat breakfast). And just FYI - my afternoon basal…"
"I fly out of HOU and and IAH, here's my experience.
