  • Re: Next Meeting of 50-Year Medalists

    Hi Tom, Annette is a very cool chick! We send each other emails, some very funny ones. Maybe the three of us can get together in 2013 at the Joslin. There was such a big crowd in 2011 that there may have to be a different meeting place this time. Either that, or we may have to eat lunch in shifts. Lol! Richard
  • Re: HAVE IT ALL AND STILL HAVE PROBLEMS

    I have been type 1 for 65 years, and my A1c stays below 6.0. To keep from having highs and lows I have kept very thorough charts of my blood tests, carbs eaten, insulin dosages, and other important factors, like exercise. I have found that my insulin:carb ratios and my insulin sensitivities vary throughout the day. If i did not realize this, my blood

  • William Rounds

    William Rounds was diagnosed with T1 in 1923, the same year he was born. I was told that he attended the Joslin Medalist meet-up in Boston, in 2009. Leah Whelan gave me that information in Dec 2009. William was T1 for 86 years by the end of that year. I wonder if William is still alive and well. Does anyone know? Google does not seem to give that information

  • Re: Need Opinions on CGMS and Pump Combo

    MikeyDee, I am pleased to hear you are doing well now, and that you like your pump. Are you using the Minimed Revel, or did you choose a different brand? Are you using the CGM too? I hope you will continue to do well in the years ahead, and that your heart will be good to you! Richard

  • Re: Medtronic Paradigm Revel Minimed

    I have used the Medtronic Minmed (MM) pump for almost 4 years, and it has never failed me. I have nothing but praise for the pump. Next year I will be getting a new pump, and i am going to get the MM Revel. I would never think of choosing a different brand of pump. I did have some trouble with the Quick sets when I first started, but changed to the

  • Re: BG STANDARD DEVIATION.

    Hello John, I have been a type 1 for 65 years and my A1c's have also been low like yours for many years. I used to have a lot of highs and lows too. I started using an insulin pump in 2007 and that has given me much better control, with fewer highs and lows. My standard deviation is currently in the 19-21 range. That seems to be good since I do
