  • Re: Need Opinions on CGMS and Pump Combo

    Wow Mikey Dee that is impressive! Congratulations and best wishes!!! About the green veggies - have you tried adding a handful of baby spinach to a smoothie in your blender? I myself like veggies, but I have read that others mask the taste with fruits and lowfat dairy by putting them in a blender and drinking them. Another benefit - no cooking!

    Has your daughter been tested for Celiac? It often goes hand in hand with type 1 diabetes. Before I was diagnosed with Celiac and went gluten free I was often nauseous.

  • Re: weight loss

    Hi Mr. Mom: I think you may be a type 1, not a type 2. I think you were mis-diagnosed and you need insulin in order to lower your blood sugars and maintain a healthy weight. Do you see an endocrinologist or just a family doctor?

  • Re: Meal Plan needed?

    I was diagnosed 9 years ago, so I'm not sure if things have changed since then. My first appointment after diagnosis was with a nutritionist who worked with me to develop a meal plan. At that time, I didn't go to Joslin, but I switched to Joslin very early on. I still use that meal plan that I was given 9 years ago. I think it is very helpful

  • Re: typical course of type one development

    Hi Anne: I am like you, an adult onset type 1. Do you take insulin? It sounds like that is what you need. The medications for a type 2 don't help type 1's. It sounds like your blood sugar numbers are way too high and you need to see an endocrinologist asap to get on insulin. Write back and let us know how you are doing. This is a great site

    Sounds like LADA to me as well. When I was diagnosed 9 years ago as LADA they told me there was evidence that supported taking a small amount of insulin daily in order to prolong the life of the beta cells. My doctor started me on 2 units of NPH a day. Good blood sugars also prolong the life so a healthy diet and exercise definitely helps. My disease

  • Re: BLOOD SUGAR WENT SKY HIGH

    Hi Jerry: Are you sure you're not a type 1? You mentioned that you are a perfect weight. A lot of adults (including me) are incorrectly diagnosed as type 2 just because of their age. Maybe you need insulin.

  • Re: Help!

    Hi Agostir: It sounds to me like you need to make some adjustments to your pump. You should be able to eat most things as long as your carb counting is accurate and your insulin to carb ratio is correct. Have you read the book Pumping Insulin by John Walsh? I found it to be very helpful. As for the urge to snack at night - I find that to be the most

    I eat an average of 127 carbs a day. 30 for breakfast, 35 for lunch and 60ish for dinner.

  • Re: question

    Hi Spurry: It sounds like you are getting good advice from your doctors. In the "honeymoon phase" right after diagnosis blood sugars are pretty unstable because the body is still producing some insulin. It would be impossible to program a pump during this time. Programming the pump takes some time and patience anyway, so I think it would be
