Yes candy smuggling...it's quite a story (one many of us are probably familiar with), and one that I'm not going to post here, but I figured I'd post the link to my diabetes blog where I do regularly write:
The Candy Smuggler
Since I'm participating in NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo and both are going to be about diabetes, I'll go ahead and make updates here daily during the month of November...

I am now a pumper! I got and was trained how to use my Medtronic 722 on Tuesday, I also have a CGM working too. So far its been great a few little mess ups and all my fault (over calibration of the CGM - not funny) and not sleeping due to thinking the alarm is going to go off and dozing off and then it does!; but all in all its attached and working. Still getting used to it and today is atill only day 2.5 :o) . The trainer said that most pumpers name their pump's to give it… Continue

My son was diagnosed on thanksgiving 2006, he was 2 years old. Now that he is 3 it has been hard to deal with at times, but it has gotten easier.After a year of being a diabetic i hope we have gotten over the worst part of the disease. The unknowns & the yo- yo bloodsugar levels. His sugar is in range where the doctor wants him to be, and he is checking his own bloodsugar, which is great.I'm very proud of him.He is my little man.

Hi! today is my husband's 32nd birthday... :-) and this is my 2nd day of taking Metformin, but I am worried because my morning BG is high... yesterday it's 132, today 139... but I went to bed last night with 129 BG, what do you think happened?
I have been vocal of saying that I become a worry wart every since I got diabetes, friends been telling me, just accept it and take your medicines religiously... well, I am, and I have accepted this disease wholeheartedly... I am just afraid of… Continue

Ok I talked to my Animas rep again and he ordered me a pump today. So now it is definite I am getting it. He ordered me the ir 1250 as they don't have any refurbished 2020's yet. I got it in a pretty silver color. I am so excited and can't wait to be a pumper.

I just got off the phone with Bobby, my representive from Animas. Even though they have not received my paperwork, it looks like I will be getting the pump. Income has to be under 30,000 a year. Well my income is at 9744. So hopefully soon I will be a pumper. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I blogged last night
about this technique and posted three videos showing how to take a super bolus using three different insulin pumps. You can also find the videos here
The idea behind the super bolus
is that you boost your bolus effectiveness by pre-delivering some of your basal… Continue

Medic Alert bracelet,
You have been a great friend and have never been away from me in 2 years. You have only came off during surgeries and mri's but have never been far away. You went right back on my wrist in a matter of minutes. You were there during the asthma attack and I couldn't talk to the paramedics. They looked for you and were able to get my information. You never left my side the day my blood sugar was in the 30's and I was in shock. In the e.r., they saw you immediately and… Continue

What do you do when you adore your physician, but despise his office personnel and the way it is run??
warning: long whiny post ahead>>
I have been trying to see my doc for about two weeks. I'm not crazy about taking time off from work (it has to be personal leave, not sick, and I just don't have enough right now for all my needs, so I've been putting off many appointments/tests). Last week I tried to get an appointment. The NP I have… Continue

Hi. I'm 41 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 1987 right before my 21st birthday. I've used an insulin pump for over 8 years, recently started Symlin therapy and am trying to get tighter control over my sugars.
I live in Flagstaff, Arizona and work in the Human Resources department at Northern Arizona University (Go Lumberjacks!). My biggest challenge is losing weight - so hard to do when you're diabetic. I'm really looking forward to getting a continuous glucose… Continue

Last night I slept all night long without DexCom 7 vibrating and beepin... saying you have a low BG . BG readings on the DexCom 7 been staying about 110 to 153.... that's good. I have a few BG reading on the DexCom 7 that have been below 80 and high of 196....(Yesterday and Today) My kiddos and my hubby always wants to look at the DexCom to see if it's working and what's my BG..... So Far I really like this DexCom 7... The sensors....the sticky stuff really works on me...

Halloween Candy - Those dreaded two words to a parent with a diabetic child, and to all of us diabetics who have to see it in the store aisles, who have to see it in a co-worker's candy jar, and have to see it in our own non-diabetic child's trick or treat bag.
I have attached a .pdf file that is a handy dandy Halloween candy chart with all of the carb listings for most of the basic "fun" or "snack" size candies. Now when you have that little treat, you won't be thinking you are being… Continue

Well for two years I did very good with diet and exercise. The past few months I fell off the band wagon...really bad. Have a serious famly problem, on my mind 24/7 and did not even think or care what I ate. Get my A1C taken on December 7 and am now scared that will have to go on meds. Think I can get it down before then if I start now??

One of the things I miss most from my non-diabetic days is curry. Specifically, curry over starch. Be it based upon coconut milk or a flour and oil paste, curry was once one of my most common meals.
It's hard to have curry without a starch to pour it on. I've tried and it just ... doesn't work.
Luckily for me, there's cauliflower!
Chop it coarsely, steam it for about ten minutes or until cooked through, and then run it through the food processor. Nobody will ever… Continue

First and foremost, the Red Sox have won the World Series - again. This may not be a big deal for people who are drawn to teams that win events on a regular basis, but to Red Sox Nation, this is a new and very long-overdue trend.
Secondly, I'm on… Continue
