I've had a pretty good week, I've gotta say. I started doing the Couch to 5k running program last Tuesday, which has gotten me into the gym for at least 30 minutes of good cardio every day for the past week, and the results have been FABULOUS for my blood sugar. I've dropped my basal .05 units/hour, and I turn my pump off for at least two hours a day before exercise. My total daily dose is coming in around 17 - 23 units. I'm very happy with these results.
I'm still having…Continue
Well after three months of ups and downs, rashes and other stuff the results are in. My A1C is 6.3 - still a ways to go but much better then 9.7.
Other values also on the mend.
I am patting myself on the back and ready to go for more.
I can do this!!
Well, I got some amazing news today, and I cant wait. The problem is, due to corporate confidentiality agreements, I cant reveal what it is. Lets just say it involves my favorite pump company. When I can say, I will tell you guys ASAP!!!
I also got a first look at the new meter that Minimed will be using with the pumps starting soon. Let me say this thing makes the BD logic look like the One Touch 2. Its going to be a One Touch meter very much like the Ultra 2s and it is a…Continue
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
