I just posted a review of the SymlinPen
on my primary blog. Here's a quick picture.
Overall this is a big improvement over a vial of Symlin and a syringe. But there are a few things that could be better.

I haven't even told my husband yet, but I must share the news! This is a safe place to share my ups and downs of pregnancy!
So I took a test last night at home, not really expecting much as I was only one day late, and there it was as clear as day "Pregnant" (the tests now spells it out for you in case the plus or minus or two lines are too confusing!)
Then again this morning I took another test as I was not convinced...and again "pregnant". Hmm, could this really… Continue

The past two nights I have been going low during my work outs. I don’t even have my basals on. I put it at a temp basal of 0% and all of a sudden during working out, the spots come
to my eyes and then the shakes. Ughh! Good thing I can still feel lows
or else I would be on the ground.
Actually, I found out from my trainer (yes, I see a trainer, wedding coming!) that someone passed out from a low blood sugar last week. Great! I definatly…

So I was completely surprised today when I came across one of my tudiabetes "friends" in the Time for Kids
magazine that I was reading with my 6th grade class. I instantly recognized Mollie's smiling eyes, and impressed my students when I told them I knew her. Way to go Mollie, and keep up the good example that you are!

I just had to share this awareness angel for diabetes. I came across this site http://www.sewstrangebnp.com/ while surfing the internet. I just had to have it for my daughter's quilt that I'm making for her for the "Diabetes - Quilt of Life". It is embroidered onto a quilt block. She also does alot of other embroidery for awareness/hope/love/etc. Simply wonderful - and I thought I would pass this on to all… Continue

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common hormonal disorders in dogs. Statistics show that one in 400 dogs develop diabetes. So you and your diabetic dog are not alone - many other pet owners are helping their dogs stay healthy and live normal lives with this disease.
Types of Diabetes
Most diabetic dogs have diabetes mellitus (pronounced MEL-uh-tus). In diabetes mellitus, the pancreatic islet cells that produce insulin are destroyed during episodes of pancreatitis or when… Continue

-I wrote his post in January when I jointed DiabetesFriends.net. I thought I'd post it here too!
I've been a Type 1 diabetic since I was 11 years old. Needless to say, there have been a lot of changes and improvements in those 28+ long years. I do believe a cure will come some day - I'm not so sure I believe it will be in my life-time, but I sure do hope so.
My biggest hurdles currently… Continue

Welcome if you are reading this blog post. I just wanted to let you know I am the founder and executive director for a diabetes assistance nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charity. We take financial donations (of course) but we also accept unexpired diabetes supplies and used insulin pumps. You get a tax receipt and the supplies you send will be given away for free to people in need. We give away meters, lancets, test strips, pumps, and cash assistance to help buy insulin. No other… Continue

What a day today was. I woke up at 133, and looking at Louise (my cgm), my overnight numbers looked good (no alarms, which is set at 180). I ate my usual breakfast and was off to school. About an hour later my high alarm went off and I was 188. I was in the middle of teaching so didn't go test at the moment, just thinking it was my peak post meal number. About 45 minutes later I glanced at Louise and was shocked to read 400! The graph on my screen went straight up! Thankfully I was just about… Continue

I am in the process of constructing a 3x3 "Quilt for Life" for my daughter Olivia. I am also planning on seeing the quilt for life being displayed on the Mall @ Washington DC. There are over 600 quilts right now. What a wonderful way to raise awareness and I'm sure seeing all those quilts displayed will be a emotional, but powerful experience.

So. I have been musing for a time now on my train trip to the Midwest in November. I would love to arrange my life to never go to an airport again. Train travel delighted me in so many ways. I did, of course, take along an assortment of amusements: the perfect novel for the experience (The Ladies' Coupe by Anita Nair about women getting to know each other on the ladies-only sleeping car of a train in India), crossword puzzles, writing projects. But what I did the most was sit comfortably at… Continue

So I called my doc to get my latest test results. Everything was good and again my A1C is 5.8. I also asked for my previous visits cholestrol results. They were good too. A total of 170, with 77 HDL, 70 LDL, and 113 tri. I wonder why I have to ask for my cholestrol numbers? I hate to admit I have not known them for over a year because my doc never includes them in my test results message.
