I came across this article today in the Colorado Springs Gazette: http://www.gazette.com/articles/diabetes_32157___article.html/type_insulin.html The article states that T2 isn't the only type of diabetes diagnosis that's currently on the rise; T1's are on the rise, too. I also recently read that kids with T1 are getting diagnosed at younger…Continue
So I was doing a little research on this whole CGM business after three separate friends of mine and about 5 people on here told me that Deltec and Animas's units were close to production. I refused to believe that a company who had no trials and no interest in doing a CGM would tell their people to tell customers that it was within four months from public market.
Well, someone I know who is also a Minimed-er like me passed this info along to me after I told him how crazy I…Continue
I've been doing this diabetes thing myself for about 1.5 years now. I've lived with my mom's own brittle T1 diabetes for the 22.5 years that preceeded my own diagnosis. I know all about fluctuating sugars and…Continue

Well, I have come to a harsh reality over the last few days: It is very tough to be a crusader for the best things in the diabetes world. I have found out through my experiences on message boards and even on Yahoo answers (haha!), that information is a luxury.
For instance, not everyone knows that the new gold standard in Diabetes care has nothing to do with insulin shots. Even though coverage has almost become universal, not many people are familiar with the GINORMOUS…Continue
My cataract surgeries were a success!!! It has been a life changing experience for me. I don’t think I have ever seen the earth as I see it now!! The colors of this world are so bright and extra special. The smile on my face has not left me since the moment I could really see this earth about 3 weeks ago.
I finally restarted my exercise program!!! I am walking on average 40 minutes a day about 4 days a week. Where I do my walking might not be a typical spot for exercising. I…Continue
Today was the first day on Olivia's new insulin. I guess I was hoping for great numbers, but got the opposite! Her numbers today started out fine, but continued to climb after her afternoon snack. Bedtime was a 340!!!
Maybe her body is adjusting, maybe we calcuated carbs wrong, maybe ...maybe... maybe. I just checked her at midnight and she was 169 (now I can be…Continue

i went to see my doctor today because i am still sick, almost two weeks already. She said it has been going around and that it has been lasting longer than usual for some people. Oh great. So lots of liquids and rest.
How am i supposed to rest with the Chargers in the freakin AFC Championship game on Sunday. (last week, major spike in my blood sugar after their win against the colts) :D
One good thing about the appointment. She told me the results of my blood work from early in…Continue

On January 16th, Olivia had her endo appt. at Pittsburgh Children's Hospital. Traveling approx. 3 hours to and from Pittsburgh was not very fun, but the appt. overall went well. Olivia was so well behaved and she just brightened the diabetes wing with her smile. Everyone stated how big she has grown since the last time she visited there and I see it too. She will be three on Febuary 8th and she already wears a 4T! When it came to drawing blood for her… Continue

Well i just got back from my first business trip since i was diagnosed. Things went well.
Peanut butter is defintely the ultimate food. And the packaged heat and eat LaBriute stuff isnt that bad either. It was easy to stay in control and I didnt have any lows which scares me much more then anything else.
Going to the MD tuesday of next week to get my results from the blood I gave for my evaluation after the first three months. I am…Continue
