  • Re: Grams of sugar per serving

    I like yogurt and will eat it only when I am low 60 or below. I only use Light & Fit by Dannon 10 carbs and 7 grams of sugar. I was suprised last week when I chose a tea bag and began to drink it that it tasted really good. Within one hour by BS was 321 - who knew that there would be sugar in an ordinary flavored tea bag! There was no markings on

  • Airport body scanners and insulin pumps

    Does anyone have any stories about going through the new airport body scanners. I am thinking of removing the pump for an hour to avoid problems. I use the Omini Pod insulin pump. Can any one tell me if they are on Medicare and which part B insurance covers the Omni Pod pump. Thanks

  • Re: The joys of low carbing

    I recently saw a picture taken in 1931 with about 20 young women ages probably between 14 and 25. Not one of them were heavy. I think we need to go back a couple of generations and view what our families ate and the everyday exercise they did. I walk a mile a day in a 100 home community and I never see any children out playing. Where is everyone?

  • Re: Test strips and lower readings

    Hi Ron, I think you may be right. I get my Ultra Strips from UoM Medical Center and they have been code 25 for over a year. I do notice a difference in BG numbers everytime I open a new bottle. Thanks Donna from Dexter

  • Re: Insulin Pump choices for a 2 1/2 year old

    Dear Ajsmama I have the OmniPod insulin pump. The pod may be too big for a small child, however, in 2010 Insulet tells me the pod will be only 2/3 the size it is now. A young child may pull out a pump with tubing. I would suggest you wait for a year or two until he understands the pump function.

  • Re: Anyone on the OmniPod? Feedback

    Dear Arsinoe, I am in my 57th year with being a diabetic. I too was unable to accept be wired to a pump. Last year I finally was approved by my insurance for the OmniPod and I love it. Currently, Medicare does not approve the OmniPod. When I retire in 2013 I am hoping that OmniPod will have Medicare approval. If not I plan on just going back to the

  • OmniPod Cost

    If anyone uses the OmniPod system, would you kindly tell me your cost. I currently pay $15 per pod directly from Insulet . I now have a new third party provider in Wixom MI (J&B Medcial Supply) and in one month they went up to $22.50. I am just curious what other folks pay. Thanks.

  • Re: Anyone on the OmniPod? Feedback

    Hi Arsinoe, I am currently using the OmniPod and love it. You are right. I waited until last year to even consider a pump. It took me 10 months to get insurance approval (BCN Michigan) before they would approve. My A1C got better (6.2) last three months. I have been a diabetic now for 57 years - long time to take the needle. There is nothing not to
