What do you do to 'feel normal' again after a low? Yesterday I saw 39 on my meter and it took 3 juices to pop it. Today I am exhausted. Does a low deplete any vitamins/minerals than can be…Continue

"Just curious....How and why do you have 2 G4 receivers? I can see the benefit with a child - 1 with the parent and 1 with the child. Does your insurance pay for a new one every so often - or did you purchase an extra one? Aren't they warranted…"

nevada replied to Jean's discussion 'BS high even tho no error on Pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"It happens. Sometimes the bolus seems to be 'gone' forever...but sometimes the insulin seems to be delayed. Sometimes, if it gets real stubborn, I will change the pod and find blood, or maybe find nothing. It is tough to know when to stop…"

nevada replied to Aussie's discussion 'Traveling' in the group Dexcom Users
"I keep insulin, extra diabetes supplies and fruit in an extra small cooler. I don't unload it. I usually wear a fanny pack for my PDM's and phone. I always go through with both a dexcom and omnipod. I make sure it is accessible so I can do…"

nevada replied to Chas's discussion 'Pod failures - newbee' in the group OmniPod Users
"I had 1 pod - in many years - that did not deploy. It just needs a couple of taps or finger flicks and it should pop. SherryAnn had great points - warm insulin (I just warm up the syringe full of insulin) slow fill. Screamers happen, but they are…"

Mike W replied to nevada's discussion 'When do you bolus? - How early before eating? I think I wait too long sometimes.' in the group OmniPod Users
"I find that 30-40 minutes pre-bolus works well. If I start off at 85 then I'll likely not peak at more than 100 if I bolus correctly. Seems to vary for everyone. I also find I have to pre-bolus further in advance the earlier it is in the day.…"

"We have a 15 year old and has been on the Omnipod for 3 years. We always bolus after eating. If she is going to eat or drink something that is very high in carbs we might bolus 15 minutes before eating or drinking. If she is going to exercise after…"

"I was in that situation once (ridiculously long delay in a restaurant) and had not yet learned to carry glucose with me everywhere I go. Fortunately there was plenty of sugar on the table . . . ."

Michael replied to nevada's discussion 'When do you bolus? - How early before eating? I think I wait too long sometimes.' in the group OmniPod Users
"So I read this post on Friday and did not respond. Today after church we went out to breakfast. My temptation was to bolus on what I had previously done but waited because it was a new venue. Sat at 10:15 had coffee and waited. Was served around…"

"Never been tested for antibodies. I have been T2 for 20 years and on insulin for less than 2. If I were anything other than T2, I'd have been dead years ago. My c-pep when last tested was 0.3, which is not quite zero but not enough to be of…"

"Ahhh.... now I understand your comments in the Afrezza thread better regarding the need for tiny dosing! So your situation is unusual, eh? What were the factors that resulted in T2 rather than T2 as a diagnosis? Lack of autoimmune…"

David (dns) replied to nevada's discussion 'When do you bolus? - How early before eating? I think I wait too long sometimes.' in the group OmniPod Users
"It also varies as widely as any other variety. For instance, my T2 has nothing to do with IR, it's just plain lack of insulin. If my TDD exceeds 20 it's an exceptional day. I am extremely sensitive to insulin, I just can't make my…"

Dave replied to nevada's discussion 'When do you bolus? - How early before eating? I think I wait too long sometimes.' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm T2, so the metabolic dynamics of my BG control aren't necessarily applicable to a T1. Of course because of IR my IC is much higher, but also the response to insulin is slower too. All that said, I generally bolus 30-45 minutes before I…"
