I had a great visit with my endo today. Except for the fact that nobody knows how to drive in the rain and I was a little bit late, it would have been perfect. Since my visit in March I have lost 4.5 pounds and my A1C has gone from 5.8 to 5.7. OK, I know that is not a big drop, but it sure beats any kind of increase. I started with an Omnipod system a little more than a week ago and so far that is working just as I anticipated it would. I did start with apidra in it but found that it is just too heat sensitive to use especially in the summer. So my endo was kind enough to give me 2 vials of novolog which I am sure were a salesman's sample but heck free insulin is free insulin and I will reserve the vials of apidra I have for the fall and winter.
I have never used novolog before but she told me it takes a bit longer than apidra to work and lasts longer than apidra does so I will just have to adjust a few things on the pod pdm. The nice thing is I have the confidence to make changes and once again the breadth of experience and knowledge here makes it so much easier for me. I really appreciate the community and the willingness to share. So thanks TuD. I don't have another appointment with the endo for 6 months as she and I both agreed that would be soon enough. Yay !!!
