  • Levemir Lumps?

    I started using Levemir at bedtime about a month ago. I've noticed that I seem to have lumps under some of the injection sites. Has anyone experienced this type of problem with insulin injections? I can't seem to find any information about this. I don't seem to have any other problems with these injections. If I rub them they seem to go

    Just a comment here, I was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease in October of 2010. My Nephrologist had me get off all vitamins and supplements and on my own I got off soda (diet) and now 98% of the time I only drink water. My kidney function is now back in the normal range, so your kidneys can recover if you treat them right. I drink about 120 oz

    Good to hear you are doing better. 137 is obviously not too low. You feeling funny at 137 is an indication that you have been too high for awhile (and your blood test numbers show that). As you keep your numbers lower your body will adjust and you should be able to tolerate the lower numbers better. Low for most diabetics is below 70. Alcohol in moderation

    If you are fit and healthy (i.e. not overweight) you may not be a type 2. There is a type 1.5 that is sometimes called late onset type 1. You mentioned eating healthy. Eating for diabetes is just eating healthy as well. Google "glycemic index" and you will get all the information you need to eat the right foods for your diabetes. You also

    Levemir is not intended to be used alone. You need some quick acting insulin (if you are a type 1) or some insulin stimulator (if you are a type 2) to take when you eat. I take 20 units of Levemir at bedtime, plus 2 mg of Amaryl before breakfast and 2 mg with my evening pills.

  • Re: Hydrocodone

    You should be able to answer that question yourself by testing in the morning when you get up or 2 hours after eating. How many times do you test your blood each day?

  • Re: Could my 8 year old son be developing Type 1 diabetes?

    No such thing as water diabetes. Just type 1 or type 2. It's not even called juvenile diabetes anymore. A random blood test showing 120 doesn't mean much by itself. How long after eating was it taken? A "normal" person should be under 100 2 hours after eating depending on the type of food eaten. If you have access to a test meter you

  • Re: insulin pumps

    First of all it costs money to maintain these bulletin boards and it is nice that Medtronics is the sponsor. Second, this board is about the diabetics who post here, not propaganda for any manufacturer. The users make 95% of the posts, not the moderators. So you're getting the opinions and experience of actual users/diabetics and that is what we
