  • Re: Update on Tor

    Well, the good news is the surgery worked, and the diabetic ulcer on my right big toe has healed. The bad news is the incision from the surgery has still not healed. I am now doing daily hyperbaric oxygen treatments. Been doing it for 2 weeks now, and the wound does now appear to be improving, although slowly. As far as a garden goes, I didn't have

    I am still here too. I have not been on here much, but do check in from time to time. It's nice to see some of the long time posters are still around. I've had a rough year. I got a diabetic ulcer on the big toe of my right foot, which I've now had for ll months. It was operated on 2 weeks ago to relieve a hammer toe in an attempt to heal

    Hi Jen, it's good to hear from you again. things have been generally good with me. I've managed to keep the weight off, but have been suffering for the last 8 or 9 months with a diabetic ulcer on the bottom of the big toe of my right foot that just doesn't want to heal. How have you been?

    I am Federal Government employee with an excellent health care plan, and excellent prescription coverage. I pay 3.99 for tier 1 generics, $20 for tier 2 prescriptions, and $35 for Tier 3 name brand drugs. So $35 per month is a worst case scenario no matter what the retail cost of the drug. Diabetes drugs and supplies have a special co-pay of $20. And

    You are correct that it is not really "continuous" but it's pretty darn close. The Minimed system actually takes a reading from the sensor once every 5 minutes. That's 12 readings per hour, or 288 readings per day. that is one heck of a lot more readings than people take using a meter with finger sticks alone. The error in your post

    wow I see it's been a year since the last post to this thread, and that's the last time I was here. Ok, so I'm back. And I see from scanning around that a lot of my old friends are still here. Update: I am now just over 4 1/2 years out from Gastric Bypass surgery. My weight remains stable which has me thrilled. I'd still like to lose

  • Re: Need Opinions on CGMS and Pump Combo

    Hi. I have been using a pump for about 8 years now, due largely to the encouragement from some of the people on the old Joslin Boards. The first pump I had was a 508. It's pretty archaic compared to today's pumps. I am currently using a 522 with the CGM system. I have been very happy with pumping as compared to the old days of multiple daily
