Why I accept Dr. Bernstien's definition of normoglycemia

Posted by OldTech in OldTech's Blog, 18 October 2015 · 171 views

Normal blood glucose as defined by sampling does indeed show that people spike to 110,120,130 and even 140 and beyond. The problem that I have with these samples is that the population being sampled are not that healthy. For example, it is estimated that around half the population is prediabetic and that most people will need treatment for one of the vasc...

Well, where to start...my name is Elizabeth, I'm a 27 yr old T1D since 1997, I've had an insulin pump since I was 14, and out of nowhere, I just haven't felt like myself. I guess I'm stressing over making sure that my son's ready to start 1st grade but I look around my house and started hearing my parent's voices saying that I need to clean my house more,...

I hate monitoring!!!! Seriously? Who likes poking themselves 20 times a day? Ok well maybe 4-6 times a day. I'm hoping for a day when it will be easier. In the mean time I got a Fitbit and it has alarms on it. So I set it for each time I need to monitor so it buzzes on my wrist until I shut it off!! It's actually annoying but it seems to work for me..


Life really couldn't be better!

I'm a generally very positive person, I don't know why but I just am. And despite the things life might throw at me at times, I just deal with it and live life to the fullest. I haven't been on here for a long time now, been too busy with life offline, but I haven't forgotten the forum or the people I've met in the chat :)

This year I'm celebrating 10 ye...

Scared & hungry

Hello everyone! Just this evening I realized that I need a support group. My whole life I have watched as my, is it A1C?, numbers have climbed. For the last couple years my general physician has had me on glumetza, but I rarely took it. Mainly because I didn't want to, but there were often times when allergy season would come, and my body did things I did...

I am 21 year old male and just started using an insulin pump again three days ago after trying it out three weeks over the summer but had a rough time after making a trip to California which resulted in out of control BGs due to the three hour time difference.

Carb Crunch

Posted by Elaine1 in Blog Elaine1, 19 February 2014 · 1,345 views

If the title sounds yummy, like a crunchy granola bar, sorry. What I mean by "crunch" is, like,
a numbers crunch, crunching the carbs - making 'em lower.

One member said they keep their carbs to under 50 per day. I think that is terrific.
It's my goal, too. Yes, it's hard. But well worth the effort. Those bad numbers turn into
good numbers with each pas...
