I've been on statins for years and I have always had trouble maintaining a fasting blood sugar level within range (I almost always wake up high)
I once asked my CDE if the lipitor could be increasing my blood sugar, becasue on the nights I forget to take it my fasting sugar is good..and they said no. I plan on arming myself with this new information when I go. What's the lesser of 2 evils, lipitor protecting my heart, or higher blood sugar which in turn will lead to increased risk of heart disease.View Thread
I keep my pump in my pocket and quite often don't feel the vibration. And I don't have hearing loss and I still cant hear the alarms...they need to make them louder!!!
Sorry, I don't have much advice for you. do you get alarms often? I make a habit of keeping an eye on my battery status and cartridge level so I know when an alarm might happen. Also, I test often, so if there was a no delivery alarm, my blood sugar would probably reflect it before it even happened.View Thread
thanks to today's insulins and technology children with diabetes can eat anything that "regular" kids eat.
SO make whatever you normally would and let the child's parents decide what she should and shouldn't have, Making something special for her will just isolate her and make her feel different. Having diabetes is hard enoughView Thread
