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
Thank you for welcoming me and my family to Tudiabetes. It was very nice to hear from people who understand. My husband and I do have a question. My son is having alot of trouble with his insulin. He gets allergic reaction to his lantus and bad headaches with his insulin. Our doctor is trying to get him off lantus, but the insurance company doesn't want to do the paper work for it. I was wondering if you had any ideas on how to keep his numbers down while the doctor is trying to get him on something that works. I am studying to be a natural healing doctor, and I can't even keep his numbers down using a natural diet at this point. The amounts he needs in insulin seem to be going up which make his headaches worse. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you, John and Michelle
Thank you so much for the welcome. I am so sorry that I'm just now acknowledging your message, but haven't been on for several months due to things going on at home. Thanks again, and Have a wonderful Day Brenda
If you are new to diabetes advocacy in the traditional sense of the word, you may be thinking, “What the heck is a docket!?” I certainly was the first twenty times I heard it (yes it took that long). For Read on! →
