  1. For my first pregnancy when I got pregnant my endocrinologist told me that he didn't follow pregnancies and he'd see me in 9 months. Luckily he referred me to a perinatologist and she said she would be able to follow me and not to worry. Not knowing any better that's the only doctor I had for my first pregnancy.

     

    I ended up having an emergency c-section' date=' however my son was born healthy with no pregnancy complications thankfully. I feel like I might have benefited more from a little more diabetes knowledge especially in the diet area (I gained nearly 45lbs!!!), but my H-R OB was great. I did find a new endocrinologist immediately after my delivery.

     

    I am now pregnant again (just 6 weeks) and I'm wondering what I can do to make this pregnancy easier. I know my new endocrinologist follows pregnancies closely, but he hasn't been able to recommend any OBs or H-R OBs he likes working with when I asked in the past.

     

    Do you guys have an OB and an high-risk OB, or just H-R OB?

     

    What combination have you liked, or not liked?

     

    One negative for my current H-R OB is that she ended up being extremely expensive with my insurance since it is considered an out-patient clinic and that is only covered 70%.

     

    I haven't been able to find any recommendations for OBs or H-R OBs in my area and there are so many when I do searches it's overwhelming...I don't have any idea where to start, except the same route that I took before this time with my endocrinologist.

     

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! I'm just trying to figure things out!

     

    Thanks in advance![/quote']

     

    Hello,

     

    I'm 13 weeks pregnant right now and I'm seeing my endocronogist & I have a High Risk OB since we're diabetics we're consider at high risk so you should be seeing your endo and OB. I also have to fax my bs in every monday & thursday. But i guess depening on where you go some places you just see the OB and you don't see an endo but the place I go we have to see an endo and OB just for the prenatal visits

    In the hopes of understanding insulin response' date=' the effect of carbs and other nutrients on diet and getting BG under control, I have decided to experiment on myself.

     

    I hope others find this interesting and if no one does, I will stop posting.

     

    The experiment is this. Take a simple easily replicated meal and use it as the base, over time, for making small changes in order to discover how diet affects BG.

     

    Obviously, this is intensely personal, all of us are different, but it is my hope that illuminating my experience will help others.

     

    First, the meal parameters:

     

    3 meals per day

    Each meal to be near 500-600 calories.

    % of calories from fat equal to or greater than 60%

    Maximum carbs for any meal is 30g

    Eat each meal 4 times in a row and then make change.

    Nutrients noted in grams C/F/P (Carbs/Fats/Protein)

     

    Blood Glucose testing parameters:

    4 tests

    pre-meal, 1hr post meal, 2hr post meal and 3 hr post meal.

     

    Initial Meal

    2 Slices Arnold's Bakery Lite 100% Whole Wheat - C-18/F-0/P-5

    6 oz Hebrew National Salami - C-3/F-39/P-24

    Meal total - 551 calories - C-21/F-39/P-29 - C 15%/F 64%/P 21%

     

    Results (minimum/maximum/average)

    pre-meal 91/123/109

    1hr 135/143/138

    1hr rise 20/45/29

    2hr 130/142/135

    3hr 116/123/119

    Based on the premise that 1 gram of carbohydrates yields 5mg/dL of BG rise, this meal has an effective rise of 105 point.

     

    Observations: I seem to have some remaining Phase I insulin response that can cover approximately 15 grams of carbohydrate in a meal. The rest shows up as BG. My Phase II response seems to be quite impaired as BG fails to fall until after 2 hours. The fat may also be slowing the absorption of the carbohydrates. The total number of carbs is probably too high and/or the types of carbs is too high.

     

     

     

    Meal 2 will replace the bread with my V8 Bread Substitute

    My V8 drink is 8 ounces of low sodium V8 with 1 Tbl of olive oil and 1 Tbl of ground flax seed.

     

    This will reduce the overall carbs from the meal by 5 grams, increase the fat by 11 grams and reduce the protein by 1 gram.

     

    Anticipated results: I should see lower BG numbers from the reduction in carbs.

     

    Results to follow...[/quote']

    G'day fellow pin cushions!

     

    Seeing as this is my first blog I figured I should tell you all a little about me. That way we can all feel like friends as once we feel like friends we can talk about all the things we're too afraid to talk about in person.

     

    So to start off, I'm a 21 year old student from Ontario, Canada. I was diagnosed when I was 16, a week to the day after my 16th birthday (thankfully i got to enjoy my birthday cake). It was a **** of a shock to myself and my mom (although she says she knew the whole time, thanks for the heads up eh mom!). Anyways, so I went to the doctors and they tested my sugar and said I was 25.7 I was then given a pee cup and told to pee, pretty embarassing for a 16 year old girl (i know there are others like me out there who would rather give blood then pee in a cup). To make matters worse, when I came out of the bathroom toting my cup o'pee i ran right into a very good looking police officer (cue the awkwardness and flushed cheeks). So for the following 3 days i was on lockdown within the hospital, they wouldnt let me go outside for a walk for fear I would faint.. I pretty much had to bribe a nurse for me just to stand outside. So after I was released from the hospital I was sent down to a larger hospital where I endured 4 days of intense training.

    At this training I was interviewed by a resident doctor who, in the presence of my mom and my aunt, proceeded to ask me if I was lactating. I guess he was trying to ask if I was pregnant and thought, you know instead of asking her if she's pregnant I'll be sly and ask if she's lactating. So when i gave him a shocked, blank state he then interpreted that as I didn't know what lactating was and went on to describe it.. most embarassing moment!

     

    So now that you know a little about how/when I was diagnosed I'll just give you a brief insight into what who I am now. I am just finishing my last year of University and am planning on applying to the RCMP (for those of you not from Canada, the RCMP stands for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, our national police force).

     

    so I hope you come back and read more of my blogs. I'm going to be talking about the issues that no one likes to talk about (relationships, careers, futures, hopes dreams, fears) you name i'll talk about it.

     

    Embrace your inner pin cushion!

    I forgot to mention that I am not on any diabetes medications, or any other medications, that would lower blood sugar. I was diagnosed with type 2 several years ago

     

    Thanks!

    Eli Lilly, December 1, 2010

     

    Since this email contact came up when I tried to contact Lilly as to my right to thoroughly understand what drug effects I may be shooting up, please allow me to express.

    I am very concerned about the meta-cresol and phenol preservatives and other possible synthetic GMO chemicals in Lilly insulin that I shoot up many times each day. Has a natural preservative even been considered, like citrus?

     

    As a consumer of your insulin, I wished to explore Humulin NPH as an alternative to Sanofi Aventis Lantus and contacted LillyHasAllTheAnswersCenter.

    I was rehearsedly told I would have to receive any info through my doctor. As a patient, who only seeks education as to what I put in my body daily...I was NOT allowed access to information and therefore the ability to decide, for myself.

     

    I DO NOT want filtered, diluted and manipulated information from any outside source. That is why I requested info directly from Lilly, the insulin maker.

    I can easily find requested info about Lantus, from Sanofi Aventis or NovoNordisk.

     

    So what is going on with info about Humulin N? Are lawyers ruling Lilly's business now even more? Your "Answer Center" restricted my access, carefully pacifying me with no answers. Why? Lilly spokesperson mentioned, we must keep our "formula" secret. This is not some game, this is about lives. I am trying to protect my health here and need info to make wise decisions. Would you not want the ability to decide for yourself and your family?

     

    Is not health Lilly's and other Pharmaceutical Industry’s priority?

     

    WHY ALL THE GLYCEROL? IS IT TOXIC, LONG TERM? I need to know, all your consumers need to know and they have that right. Correct? It makes us suspect something is being hidden?

     

    DO WE REALLY KNOW THE EFFECTS OF GMO INSULIN, LONG TERM? GMO FOODS ARE NOW DESTROYING OUR HEALTH. IS IT THE SAME WITH GMO INSULINS? I need to know.

    I really want my porcine insulin back. Sadly, natural insulins have been run out of the market with these cheap synthetic questionable insulins.

     

    Health above profit? With all this medical intervention, we remain the sickest nation on earth with grotesquely profitable epidemics of heart, cancer and diabetes. Where is the emphasis on prevention, where is that "cure"? I gladly take far less insulin eating no sugar and white flour. Why does Lilly's "source of info doctors" never reveal this lifesaving info?

     

    M-CRESOL IS RATED "POSSIBLE CARCINOGEN" BY FDA. IS THERE REALLY NOT A SAFER PRESERVATIVE?

    HOW DOES LILLY REALLY KNOW THE SIDE EFFECTS LONG TERM, why not just use something safer?

     

    Is Lilly so set in their "secret formula" they are willing to risk short term monetary gain for us dying diabetics? What will true research reveal about long term use of PHENOL?

     

    Sad state of our nation, with the drug pushers, pushing their drugs for mere profit not health. Sorry, we are dying needlessly here…

     

    If drugs are needed, let's join together to make SURE their benefits outweigh their risks.

    Health first. Blessings to all.

    Please send along email with needed answers.

    Hello all

     

    It's been a very long time since I posted on this site but I've have just been reading through some of my posts when I began my Ivf journey in February 2009 and it brings tears to my eyes. Remembering the emotions I went through' date=' the ups and down and having so much support from everyone on here.

     

    My baby girl is one years old on Tuesday 19th October and I suppose I'm feeling very emotional.

     

    I'm planning a party, 10 kids, 30 adults, it has cost me a fortune with balloons, party bags, a gorgeous cake but my baby girl is worth it.

     

    Good luck to all you who are trying to concieve at the moment, my thoughts are with every one of you every day.

     

     

    Take care

    Now it has been about 6 weeks since I started my exercise program. I have lost about 6.5 pounds so far. I am going to the gym about 4-5 times a week. Typically doing cardio and weights. I am a little more focused on the cardio right now. I want to try and get under 200 pounds. I am at around 211 right now. I have gotten frustrated at how long it is taking to lose the weight.

    I have gone in and tried different elliptical machines this week to see which one I like the most. I tried two of the new machines. Our gym recently purchases several new machines. I think the one I started with so far is still my favorite. I like it because it has a smooth motion to it and it is solid, so I don't feel like I am going to fall off it or tip the thing over.

    I am new here first day. I was diagnosed Type 16 months ago with an aic of 15 and a fasting glucose of 500. I take Lantus 10 units and novolog 1 unit per 20 carbs. The problem lately without novolog I am falling to about 37 daily and if I eat carbs I go high maybe 200 but then even without novolog I will fall out. I am not sure what is happening and I lost my health insurance any advice??? I am afraid to take the novolog but without it I do go high.

    Hello I'm kinda new here :) I was wondering what you all fell on A1C levels before conception. I am having trouble getting mine below 7 :( It's frustrating because we are ready and feel that we have been waiting so long, but my endo "discourages" TTC until i'm as close to 6 as possible. I feel like i'm never going to get there and dont want to wait forever! Just frustrated I guess and need some venting....most of our family and friends just don't get it :(

    I've read that you shouldn't use a cell phone case that has a magnetic closure because it can mess with the pump. I've never tried it because I just use the slim clip on my MM pump and clip it inside my front pocket.

    ,Yes it is true, I now use a cell phone case with velcro closure because the magnet on the other 2 cases did mess up my insulin pump. Could not figure it out then I fully read all info and precautions in the books that my diabetes educator had given me on insulin pump therapy and there it was in black and white.

    Pre-diabetic

    I take multivitamin 1/2 2x day' date=' multi-mineral 1/2 2x day, 4,800mg fishoil day(at night so I don't have to taste it all day), 4000units of Vitamin D3, and I started taking 98% micronized resveratrol about 2 months ago 250mg 2x day. I am almost sixty and no high blood pressure yet, but am becoming what they call insulin resistant? Is this a term anyone is familiar with? My biggest problem right now is high cholesterol at total chol. of 382, but I am scared that the pre-diabetes will go Type II and a friend told me to take resveratrol. Has anyone tried it? If so, is it working to bring sugars down?

    Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a physical disorder involving the pancrease, a gland which produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a hormone that acts to regulate the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Insulin lowers the blood glucose (sugar) level and promotes transport and entry of glucose into the muscle cells and other tissues for their energy needs and into the liver and fat cells for storage. Inadequate secretion of insulin causes elevated blood sugar and lipid levels. What is the result? Some common symptoms of DM - excessive thirst and hunger. As the disease progresses the body's inability to store or use glucose cause weight loss and fatigue. Another common symptom that is often overlooked is blurred vision.

    DM affects about 16 million Americans, yet perhaps only half of them know they have it. Often those with the most common type of diabetes (type 2), which tend to show up in older adults, confuse their symptoms with aging or being overweight. As a result, they don't get the treatment they need. Left untreated, diabetes can cause serious problems, including an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, blindness, kidney trouble, nerve damage, and amputation (loss) of limbs due to circulatory problems.

    There are two types of diabetes, Type 1, also know as juvenile appears early in life - 14 years of age or younger - when the pancrease stops working. Type 2 occurs later in life. About 90 percent of diabetics have type II diabetes, which results when the muscles become resistant to insulin, even though the body may be producing enough.

    Is there a cure for diabetes melitus? No, but both types can be managed well with a combination of drugs, exercise, a well-balanced, healthy diet and monitoring of blood sugar levels.

    What should you do if you suspect you might have diabetes? See your doctor and follow his or her advice.

    Hi,

     

    I am using a Freestyle Freedom monitor which I plan to use at its full capability. I this regard, I need to use the associated software otherwise named "CoPilot® Health Management System". However, it appears that this piece of software can not be downloaded here in Canada.

    The downloading site https://www.abbottdiabetescare.com/adc_dotcom/showCoPilotDownloadForm.do doesn't have the "canada" option in its registration form.

    I have to mention that I have the necessary USB cable used for downloading the information from the monitor to the PC.

    Does anybody know how to address this apparent issue?

    Sincerely

    I always say that becoming a Diabetic has been one of my greatest blessings.

     

    Shocked?

     

    Well you need to learn the before and after in order to understand that statement.

     

    Before I became a Diabetic I thought of myself as a “health nut”. I was extremely active, ate a lot of greens and stayed away from high fructose corn syrup.

     

    But

     

    I was the stereotypical dancer who walked around with poor body image and did whatever it took to become and stay skinny.

     

    I binged regularly and then took laxatives to get rid of the food. I exercised on top of the hours of dancing I did and feared every morsel of food I ate.

     

    Then Diabetes happened.

     

    I all of a sudden became aware of my detrimental behavior. Food became the focus of my life and fixing myself was my priority.

     

    I knew bingeing was out of the question, but most importantly I began to take a closer look at my relationship with food. I realized how unhealthy I was living and knew I had make a huge transformation.

     

    This is when my search for a cure began. I went on a rampage search to rid Diabetes from my body. What followed was profound and miraculous.

     

    With each expert and healer I worked with, I learned another aspect of nutrition, food as well as a deeper understanding of myself.

     

    I began to realize I viewed food as my enemy and felt broken each time I ate. I walked around with intense feelings of inadequacy, which is what led to my bingeing.

     

    Once I discovered my inner deamons, I was able to heal them and the bingeing completely stopped. It was replaced with conscious eating habits, an awareness of how the food affects me and a purpose to what I ate and how.

     

    Once I did that my sugars became normal and my weight slid off my body effortlessly.

     

    It started with my mindset. I needed to shift my views of food from my enemy to my healing energy. I needed to shift my view of myself from broken to beautiful and perfect.

     

    when I changed how I looked at things, my whole life began to change. It brought about different behavior,which in turn brought about a different result.

     

    The main thing to remember is understanding why you do what you do. When you understand this, you can begin to choose a different behavior if the first one does not serve you.

     

    Become conscious of your actions and the reasons behind them. Decide if they are serving your life right now and if they don’t then create a new action step. Don’t simply get rid of the negative pattern. You need to replace it with a positive one.

     

    “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wanye Dyer.

    I would love your thoughts on my post and website. As a diabetic is what I'm offering helpful? check out.

    I was unable to respond to Emily84 "What Next" so am composing a new blog.

    Anyway, that is great that you want to live, and feel good :)

    I wonder what was going on and how you were coping last month when you were doing better? In my mind, staying off the @$@! scale is one key thing- those numbers have way too much power.

    Were you on a meal plan that would help you maintain a healthy weight? (Also wondering if you also have binging or restricting as part of your problem) Were you more active with work, school. friends?

    I still wonder if seeing a therapist or nutritionist would help? Could you enlist some concrete help from family?

    Just some ideas...I really want to support you if I can.

    I don't want to list my email here, but if there is a way I can get it to you without doing that, I would be happy to do that.

    I hope you are doing well today.

This automatic driving along the street was running through the golden gate bridge, then along the Pacific coast highway driving, and even driving around lake tahoe. In short, we be driving the car so far has 14 million miles of mileage, christian laboutin we think this is the first step of robot research."It is reported, current 750 driverless car without manual intervention was driving under the circumstance of automatic Google and 1,000 miles (14 million miles... car trip mileage includes occasional someone driving control section), these include Toyota Prius improved edition, in addition to an audi TT.The use of video camera be driving a car, radar, laser range finder sensor and to understand the surrounding Google in traffic, and their own map navigation.

    My cruise to Bermuda ended up being a cruise to Florida and Nassau due to Hurrican Earl, but it was all good. I got to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (highly recommended) and do the conga line of shots at Senor Frogs in Nassau (oh how I wish we had video of that) ;-) along with a yard of margaritas one afternoon.

     

    As for the food, yes, I did enjoy all the bacon I wanted at the breakfast buffet (I was in piggy heaven) and the occasional small chocolate croissant. did my share of imbibing some alcohol but did not overdo it either. I came home just 2 pounds heavier which considering all the yummy food available .. well not too bad really. My blood sugars were pretty much in control except for the night we did some pasta, but took care of that with a few laps around the deck. I think I managed to enjoy the vacation without overdoing the sugary desserts and breads (my weakness) that were around 24/7.

     

    The 2 pounds are gone now (along with a bit more) and I am back to my "new" lifestyle eating habits. My advice for a cruise, go out and enjoy it, don't go hog wild (especially on chocolate buffet night) but don't deny yourself either - I got dessert, had a couple of bites to satisfy my curiosity and gave the rest to my non-diabetic husband ;-)

    I have the purple Paradigm real-time Revel. Not sure if it's 523 or 723. How do you find that out? I've checked the box and all the paperwork and I'm not finding it!

    Liz....It's been going good. I've been pumping since last tuesday. I'm doing my 2nd infusion set change today and that is going good. Do you find that when you wear the pump on your waist your tubing gets hooked on things. I have gotten it stuck while walking around door knobs and other things. I keep tucking it in my pants and it keeps coming out. I'm using the shorter tubing too. Also' date=' this may sound strange but for 2 nights now at the end of the day I get a bit of anxiety about having something attached to me. I need to unhook the pump for a bit and then I feel better. Still just trying to get used to it. The first few nights all my kids ended up in my bed because they were worried about me. My husband was at the firehouse and my 2 girls and son were sleeping with me. Every time I moved one of them would ask me if I was ok. The whole family is trying to get used to it I guess. I know it's just gonna take time.
