Hey Cheery, I noticed on one of your blogs that you take big doses of Levemir. Are you still pushing these doses through a syringe or have you gone to a pump. My dr. has me pushing 100 units a day which I split up into two 50 unit doses. I also take enormous amounts of Humalog before (and after) meals to keep by BG down with not alot of success. I've been on insulin since the first of this years and am getting rather troubled by the amount of insulin I'm taking. Thanks, Doug Kincheloe
Hi Cherry, Glad you got back online. Doesn't it suck when you can't get what you need to take care of yourself? Good luck on getting another type of pump. I have been very happy with Minimed for the last 24 years...not sure if I will ever swich!
I went to a prior dr and she suggested symlin for me. I have some weight that will not move not matter what I do. I tried it for the first time last night. I went out and ate a high fat meal...and woke up with a 415 this morning...yuk! But, when I changed my pump site this morning, it bled a little bit. I have it back down down. Hope you are doing well and look forward to hearing back from you.
I see you are an entertainer...what do you do?
Good for you! The pump is great. You will see a great improvement on your A1C number. I wear the Minimed 522. I don't know anything about the omnipod. I have worn Minimed for 24 years. Good luck and keep me updated on your progress with the pump.
I don't know anything about an event in Florida. It may be listed under the events on this site.
Hope you are having a good blood sugar day! Mine went from 130 at wakeup to 234 without eating anything.....I think it is my hormones................It can be a little difficult sometimes :o).
Have a good one!,
It looks like we are considered diabetes veterans. I was diagnosed in 1970. I see that you were searching for a chat about symlin when you discovered this site. Do you take symlin? I am thinking about it. I wear a pump, but from what I read symlin really helps. I'm going to a new endo on Tuesday...we will see how he feels about it.
Hope you are having a great day!
