target range ,waking up, before meals, bedtime.
and i need blood glucose guide for fasting and non-fasting.
My DR will not tell this. this is way i am asking you.
Today (12/7) is my anniversary. Exactly one year after Pearl Harbor was the first day I was sick with T1D Type 1 Diabetes. I was 10 years old. Two days later Dr. Wright made a house call and decided I needed to be in the hospital. Since my mother didn’t know how to drive, Dr. Wright drove me and my mother to the hospital in his car. Shortly after arriving at the hospital I lapsed into a coma. Of course, insulin saved my life. I don’t have any records or recollections by my parents, but I…Continue
I've been raving about how good things have been going for me lately. After many years of nothing but bad things happening, I finally had hit a good patch and everything was coming up roses. Well, of course as soon as I let my guard down and give in to the goodness and let myself feel good and happy, it all comes crashing down around me.…Continue
"I wonder if there's anything here I can eat," I ponder as I walk through the cafeteria, peering into glass cases with rows of food I can't identify. My colleague launches into a description of all the foods…Continue
Is diabetes a sensitive subject in your life?
Perhaps this is a strange question, but is Diabetes a sensitive subject in your life? If it is, why? On September 29, 2014 Richard157 started a provocative and important discussion about hiding diabetes. You can find this wonderful discussion thread at this link:…

I belong to a family medical center that “trains” Dr's they work at the office for 3 years and then they go off to find a permanent practice to work in. Last summer my Dr graduated out of the practice and has moved on. Now I have a new pcp who called me to get fasting blood work done. When the results came in I got to go for a follow up appointment “oh joyous of occasions” yes, my cholesterol is high.
I went in thinking she was going to try to throw some statin drugs at me, instead…Continue
This sight is all new to me. Over lunch break I started looking through everything and I have to say... it brings tears to my eyes to see the chats like normal convo, the post of people experiencing highs and lows, pump talk, basal, bolus, shots, bg readings, etc. 17 Years ago my thyroid was removed due to graves disease then shortly after that I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I don't have much support as I am the only one who is diabetic in my family. So to see all the support on this…Continue
Whatever, you normal people keeping your insulin in your pancreas. I keep mine in the butter compartment! I am so awesome that I don't need to make my own insulin! I can be alive, healthy, and outdo any of you so called "healthy" people any day. Psh, who needs a working pancreas; not me!
I'm so strong that I can have a disease and still live a normal life. I'm ALL that! I was taking my own shots and pricking my own fingers at nine years old. Nothing hurts me! Nothing can bring me…Continue
Because November is a month for diabetes awareness and for a diabetic to reflect on the beauty of being alive - and being grateful for modern medicine - was the same month that my pancreas decided to be ironic and start those first fights - which we all know as the ending to the honeymoon.
Four. Count that f.o.u.r. hypers in a week. That may not seem like much to older diabetics, but I have never had my blood sugar go over 200 four times in a week since my diagnosis 17 months ago. My…Continue

Welcome to Planet Diabetes. This is the 4th planet of the 5th solar system of the 10th ring of the Health Galaxy. It is well populated. Planet diabetes is a bit strange. Things happen here that are not observed elsewhere in Health Galaxy. These oddities make our observations particularly difficult to understand.…
It came to my attention a few weeks ago that my retina specialist has left the group I'm a patient of. None of his patients are pleased with this. You see, he is the top rated retina specialist in this area for a reason. He's absolutely brilliant, compassionate, gentle, and personable. All of his patients are in an uproar and trying to figure out what happened and where he is.
Well, today I had an eye appointment. This was to be my first visit with my new retina specialist. I was a…Continue

As is probably very common with married couples, my husband and I had two Thanksgivings this year and every other year since we've been married. This year I vowed to stick to my healthy eating habits even though it was a holiday with many goodies to enjoy.
I grew up with zero self control which made being a type I diabetic all the more fun. Because of my rebellious nature and total lack of self control, I spent the first 20-some-odd years of my diabetic life with very high blood…Continue
Well after much thought I have made the change from a Animas Ping to the T Slim. So far I am nothing but pleased and impressed. The only drawback I see is the long set up time when you change a cartridge but it is easily out weoghed by the ease of use and the display. I am considereing talking to a case company about making a custom leather case for the pump with a flap cover and magnetic latch. Is there any interest in making this a group buy?
One thing that I am thankful for, is the relative lack of quacks and charlatans in the world of type-1 diabetes. Sure, we have a few researchers who say "cured in 5 years", and a plague of reporters and bloggers always looking forward to amplify whatever fool thing they say. But that is very different from the outright fraudsters who are attracted to some other diseases. We get fewer of those. This posting describes how to look at doctors and clinics which claim to cure/treat type-1…Continue
I am very lucky that it never got to the point that I needed to be hospitalized for it, however, when it was caught, my first A1C was…Continue
I posted the following blog on November 22, 2010 -- for Thanksgiving Day. Since then I have found other reasons to be thankful -- for one, I have stayed alive long enough to celebrate my 21st Diaversary! I had a real medical scare this last January, which could have ended differently. Our son and daughter and their offspring are thriving, and thankfully, I'm here to appreciate that. And oh yes, I'm thankful that my husband and I will soon celebrate the anniversary of our marriage in the…Continue
I looked back on last year and tried to see if I wrote a Thanksgiving blog. I could not find one and maybe for a good reason? My father passed in 2012 in early December and I was feeling low in 2013. Maybe I did not feel like giving Thanks?
Well this year is this year and yes I miss dad terribly, but it gives me some perspective and the ability to say thanks…
