Diasend: I joined, uploaded omnipod and dexcom - Now what does it mean?

I read about Diasend Diasend linkon this forum. Thank you!! I was able to download my data and see both my omnipod and dexcom information. Yea!! I can see that if I also add exercise to my dexcom, that may help me understand 'swings'. I can see the benefit of this to use at my doctor's appointments. My endo doesn't even have any software to download my data. Anyone have hints as to how to interpret this information? What 'screen' do you use?…See More

nevada replied to Kay459's discussion 'New to Omnipod- can you help me figure out what I am doing wrong?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I find that the pod works better when I press down on the pod over the cannula while it is activating. If I don't have a suction - proved when it is removed by seeing the proofed up triangle - I am not absorbing the insulin well."

"Just curious - since you really have a grasp of insulin absorption...Does this mean that an increase of muscles on someone would cause a faster absorption of insulin? (assuming that the insulin was not injected direction into a muscle either time).…"

Anyone have insurance through Nevada Health Link?

I have health insurance through the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and according to the letter I signed written by the Chamber - 100,000 of us are about ready to lose our health care within the next few months. Our health insurance was on a 1 year extension - and could have been given another year extension - but the extension was not approved by our Governor or Insurance Commissioner and the letter did not influence them. Has anyone been able to get insurance through our exchange - Nevada…See More

"Thank you for the information Katkat! When I have a low insulin day,a high insulin day usually follows. I never really understood why. I suspect you just explained it. I will also follow it up with the book."

"Katkat: Will you clarify, "BUT what you have eaten (even the night before) can impact your insulin needs"? I find that my doctors think that all food spikes within 1 hour. I don't find that to be the case."
