"I have the same problem sadly. I have had it checked out, and it for me is not related to diabetes. I am actually allergic to the cold. Cant say the same for you, but would be wise to get it checked out."

ITCHING SKIN!!!

So it's been pretty cold where I live, and when I'm walking outside, my skin (especially my legs) get so incredibly itchy! Its almost painful. I've read that this is an issue for a lot of people when their skin gets cold, but my dad thinks it's related to my sugars and minor neuropathy. I've felt that "tingling" in my feet before from high sugars, but never all over my body. And as I said, it only happens when I'm walking in the cold.Does anyone else experience this? Related to diabetes or not,…See More

Amusement Parks & My Pump

In a few weeks I'm planning on going to Six Flags/Hurricane Harbor with my family. I just started on my Medtronic pump in May, and I was wondering what to do with it during those days at the parks! I'm not too concerned about Six Flags since it is mostly dry. But what about the water park?? Do I leave it attached? It's not exactly water-proof... Do I just suspend it every time I get to the front of the line at a ride?Help!See More
