It was sunny and seventy a few days ago. The birds are back and the flowers and trees are blooming. Today it is grey but warm. Not a bad day. I hope I don't get rain when I am walking the dog! Ellen

Bolus makes my sugar go UP basal even worse because of the rebound- how do I not have rebound- what's best, morning arm or evening? ( 1 hour lag time always) but is the 3 hours or so after needle stick or is it from your last bite? Thanks! p.s. My doctors appt. is in 3 more months! Just got refilled!

Hi Rick. You must be getting close to that 200 blogs number; I hope you'll continue to write a blog now and then anyway. I mentioned to you once before that I prefer reading blogs to reading discussions. I think that since you've been writing blogs, more people are writing them here on TuD, and they're all getting more views than was previously the case. Anyway, thanks for all your writing!

Thank you for answering my question about the problems we are having with my son's insulin. First of all, we appreciated you sharing your experience with natural medicine with us. We practice both natural and modern in our home. Because I am studying the diet and natural cures, I also need to know about the medications and their interactions with herbs and food as well. I am planning on also talking to my daughter's friend who studied to be a nurse about medications that are prescribed to people and their effects on people as well. I am sorry to hear about what happened to your mother. Thank you again for sharing it with us. That was very helpful. We are having to work with a different endocrinologist. Our first appointment is in May. My son is eight and has only had diabetes for a year. He kept asking if you had written back. We have had problems with his lantis since the beginning. We are now splitting his dosage in half and giving it to him two times a day. That is working alot better. We are looking at all the information that you have sent us, and will have a list of questions for the doctor in May. Thank you again. John, Michelle, and our son Nathan
