New OmniPod User

Hi everyone,
I was diagnosed with Type 1 in August, 2014. I am in my senior year of high school and it has been a rough ride but I recently received some good news when my insurance company approved my OmniPod before the six-month mark! Life with diabetes is still new to me so if anyone has any overall tips or advice for diabetes in general or the OmniPod, they would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

The Year I Was Banned from the Olympic Games (The Highs and Lows of Living with Diabetes #5)

1972 was a big year for me--the year of the Olympic Games, and I was participating.

I was 12 years old and won 27 gold medals. At least I should have.

The other competitors, Tim Ward, age 11, and Jeff Ward, age 10, competed too. The events all took place in my backyard, garage, basement, and around…

Poem- "See" Diabetes Blog Week. Telling Type 1 Diabetes Who's Boss

http://mindydiabetes.wordpress.com/2014/05/12/see-poem-diabetes-blog-week-day-2/

you look at us and you don't see

maybe you look at us and you see

but do you really see or even believe

do you really know what goes on below the layers

under our thick skin

in our bodies

in our minds

while the chaos is underway

you don’t see

you can’t…

Type-2: The Genetic Reliance

Disclaimer: This contains science related subject matter from various sources, however (despite studying bachelors in biology) I am not a doctor or an expert in this area. The evidence for this has been obtained from reliable sources.

When someone finds out that I'm diabetic, often the first question they ask is: 'Type1 or Type 2?' with my response being type 1. Following this they often attempt to console me with comments like 'oh right so it wasn't your fault' or 'so you inherited…

Dancing in the Street: A Journey into Wellness

I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in February 2011 during my 23rd year of teaching in NYC's public school system. I intended to quit immediately, however, at the request of my principal, I decided to stay until the end of that school year. During those four months, I secured a Health Coach and Personal Trainer. As a result, I lost 25 pounds and looked and felt so much better. The following month after my retirement from teaching, I began an online course in nutrition. By the end of that…

Story of My Daughter's Type 1 Diagnosis at 18 months of age

Sorry Im so late with this but I finally got our story done.

 

My daughter Melanie was diagnosed in 2006 at the age of 18 months. I would say over a month or two starting in either November or December 2006 she was getting symptoms such as drinking (it never seemed to be enough no matter how much she drank but it was maybe a little more than usual). If you have kids you know they love to drink and constantly ask for drinks so it was hard to go by this.…

When People Know the Difference Between T1 and T2

I had a great week, and felt completely encouraged based off of one conversation with this lady! http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/05/she-made-my-week.html

Regarding the proposed name changes for T1 and T2 diabetes...

My thoughts are this...

It seems to me that it would serve all of us better, if our diabetes was referred to as either

"Insulin Dependent", or "Non-insulin Dependent" 

 

Insulin dependent diabetics would have a medical ID that states their need for insulin, instead of saying T1 or T2. Therefore, those who need…
