markeeezy replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'Insulin for Stouts?' in the group Diabetes And Beer
"It depends on a few things, but usually if it is craft beer or something with a higher alcohol content/less additives then I will correct for roughly 12 or 15 carbs worth. I've found that the heavier, stronger beers usually do affect me.…"

markeeezy replied to dishers's discussion 'Basal getting higher' in the group OmniPod Users
"I would copy all your basal settings to a new program so you can go back to the old settings if you need to, and then just raise them across the board. If I remember correctly you have a Dexcom as well, so you can see when the trends are going…"

markeeezy replied to DextrosePLZ's discussion 'OmniPod Accessories - Freed DM' in the group OmniPod Users
"Ok yeah, that helps a lot. Thanks! I may get those two pieces. I always like new diabetes gear - especially portable/convenient things like this. Thanks again!"

markeeezy replied to DextrosePLZ's discussion 'OmniPod Accessories - Freed DM' in the group OmniPod Users
"Sorry, one question. None of the pictures on the website make this very clear - but is the cover for the PDM a snap-on kind of thing that snaps onto the front of the PDM and that's it? And the back is "bare"? There are some pics on…"

markeeezy replied to DextrosePLZ's discussion 'OmniPod Accessories - Freed DM' in the group OmniPod Users
"Wow, I really like the look of your setup... I may actually get both of these cases myself. It looks nice and compact. I don't mind the zippered pouch, because I keep extra things in there like alcohol swabs, a vial of insulin, a syringe and…"

markeeezy replied to DextrosePLZ's discussion 'OmniPod Accessories - Freed DM' in the group OmniPod Users
"Just curious - do you also leave your test strip vial and lancet device loose in your messenger bag/pocket? I find it difficult to not have a zippered pouch that contains everything. I can't think of another system that would be convenient for…"

markeeezy replied to John Galt's discussion 'Never Change Batteries While Delivering a Bolus' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thanks, John. That's good to know. You'd think they would have figured that out sometime during QA testing and put it in the manual. Oh well."

markeeezy replied to Sarah Moulton's discussion 'dang…hit a blood vessel with the new sensor' in the group Dexcom Users
"To be honest, I have no idea how to search. Haha the only search function I can find did not pull up my thread when I typed in "blood," so that one doesn't seem too useful. I know that improving search is currently being discussed as…"

"Hi Sarah, I had this same problem not too long ago. Here is the thread: http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/dexcomusers/forum/topics/blood-on-sensor-insertion Basically, my sensor worked perfectly fine after inserting! I can understand wanting to…"

markeeezy commented on Caoilte Pickle's group 'Inked Diabetics'
"That sounds pretty great. And, Sankofa, Brendan just mentioned the other quite important point. Always follow whatever recommendations your tattoo artist gives for aftercare, not what you know from past experiences or what other people tell you. I…"

markeeezy commented on Caoilte Pickle's group 'Inked Diabetics'
"I'll second what Brendan said about being really careful with the tattoo while it's healing. It isn't really difficult to heal a tattoo well, but it takes care and attention for sure. Make sure you wash it VERY well when you first get…"

markeeezy replied to dishers's discussion 'Rechargeable batteries' in the group OmniPod Users
"Sorry I'm late on this thread, but I wanted to mention to everyone that, since the manual says you cannot use rechargeable batteries, if anything should happen to your PDM to make it stop working they can blame it on your use of batteries if…"

"That sounds about right. Haha"

markeeezy replied to DextrosePLZ's discussion 'Silencing a screaming pod - a trick.' in the group OmniPod Users
"Great tip, thanks! I have never thought about doing that! I usually try and smash them or open them up with a knife. Your way sounds easier. Haha"

"Good news, Michael! Thanks for keeping us up-to-date."

markeeezy commented on Rob's group 'Dexcom Users'
"What I'd really like to see if a CGM that talks to a smartphone app. It would be amazing to not have to look at both devices for different purposes, and to be able to create charts and graphs on-the-go to see what your sugars are doing (over a…"
