Great to see all you are accomplishing, love the blog and videos. Wish I could send them to the University I went to for ballet...their attitude was that diabetics do not make good dancers. Ha, you proved that wrong! Have a blessed holiday.
I had lots of problems when I took shots. I've always have had a problem with random lows. They came to the conclusion that I would do better without having a bulk amount of Lantus in me. So for now I've been on the pump for 8 months. It's soooooo much better. The CGM is tricky but I'm slowly figuring it out. I've got to remember check my actual BG if I make corrections due to what it says.
Have you had issues taking medicines yet? I get affected pretty bad by cold medicines and head ache medicines.
Hello first friend! Thanks for the add it's nice to finally meet a couple people with T1 diabetes. I see you recently got it so I hope all is going well for you. I was diagnosed when I was almost 13 and it was definitely a life changer. Did you ever have to take shots?
Thanks Catherine I tried waiting 15 mins after blousing to eat and that has seemed to be helping! Now if Only I can fix these Highs after each new pod change! I know it's different for everyone but you said you bolus for your meal plus extra with the old pod before the new one is put on?! How much extra do you bolus and when you put the new pod on do you bolus any on that one or do any increase in temp basal? Thanks :)
Hey do you experience high BG for many hours after each new pod change? My endo and omnipod reps cant seem to figure out why i would have that issue everytime! He suggested switching to novolog but I don't see how that would make a difference!
Haha yes it is! It's funny because I'm a pharmacist now! I just graduated this past May with my PharmD but have not started working yet! Everyone even my peers at school were like why Apidra? I actually was on humalog pens for a few years and just recently switched to apidra, to help lower my BG right after eating. I was getting high and then dropping low 2 hours later. I think it's been working better for me, but I'm still getting use to the omnipod still struggling with it, especially with every new pod change!
And I see you're using the one touch delica lancer! I just received mine today and love it!!! :)
I see you were diagnosed recently. About the time you were diagnosed, I had a bad low where I blacked out and broke my ankle in the process. I was highly down from that, but it healed and now am playing basketball and running again like my usual self. There are times where you feel low, low from the sugars and low from the daily cycles, but there are good times too. Keep up your hard work.
hey, you are welcome.
i really do not think low carb diet is that healthy since it may cause some problems with kidney in long term if you take protein too much and if you take unhealthy fat it is also not good for cholesterol and vessels. http://www.annecollins.com/low-carb-or-low-gi-diet.htm
in my opinion what is important is to apply low glisemic index diet also containing fruits, whole grain bread and whole wheat pastries, but in any case you are better to reduce cereal:)
You have a very recent diagnosis.
It is a fact that having a physically demanding job with is a great help. my diagnosis was made when i was 25 years while studying and had more flexible schedules. Working now, sitting at a desk, is more difficult to manage fluctuating humores.some times i think as it would be better to have a job like yours.
