jeff replied to Deannan's discussion 'Preferred Lancing Device'
"I prefer the B-D Ultrafine system. I HATE lancets, especially when they are powered by something spring-loaded. They have a relatively large blade that, in my opinion, hurts more than any other diabetes regimen. I gave up on the whole concept about…"

"Hello, Stemwinder. Thank you for the info about the InsuLinx group, (albeit right after I requested help from someone else.) I do feel compelled to say that if administration gets in the way of progress, the administration is probably not structured…"

"And a good HO, at that. Your's is probably the best/safet approach, always, and the one I take most of the time, but I got the impression Natalie was talking about the WAY LOWS. When I get caught WAY LOW (and am maybe a bit less than totally…"

jeff replied to NatalieHodge's discussion 'turnaround time for low?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Hi, Natalie -There are 3 unrelated components to the time it takes for a recovery (or start of a recovery) to be reflected in your Dex unit. 1) the amount of time it takes for your body to digest and distribute what you have ingested 2) the amount…"

Hi Jeff, I understand your need for speed in getting information. Our site is run mostly by volunteers and if you will look to the tight of the page you will see that everyone from the Lead Administrator on down are volunteers. I think they do a great job.

I'm not trying to scold I just wanted you to know. If I can understand something that frustrates me I will feel better about it. I want you to enjoy the time you spend with us.
