  • Does anyone have any ideas about the disposal of used syringes (for filling my omnipod each time).  Each omnipod set comes with a pod (adhesive-attached insulin reservoir) that you fill w/insulin by an enclosed pod syringe.  What to do with these plastic syringes afterwards?  The needles can come off....but should I just cut them off with a needle cutter (quicker)  and toss the syringes into the garbage.....(Hate to be such a guilty syringe polluter) - but what are you gonna do?

    Any ideas, suggestions would be appreciated.

    This is the updated PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager) - the blue device.  It is called theOmnipod and it is made by a company based in Bedford, Ma (Insulet Corporation).  The small grayish device is the "pod" (the device that contains insulin and is attached to one's body).  Great thing about this is that you have everything in one (Glucometer + Insulin Pump).  Less stuff to carry around! The update happened in July. Current users to Omnipod can get the update for roughly $149 (till the end of September maybe?) , then the list price kicks in.

  • Has anyone tried this insulin-pump system that's best-selling feature is that it is "tubeless"?

    I have to say that being on an insulin pump has made controlling blood sugars easier. And the 

    fact that there are no tubes "to accidentally pull on" makes it an improvement.

    Insulet Corporation (manufacturer of Omnipod System) has just updated the meter which is called

    a "Personal Diabetes Manager".  The new interface, screen is brighter, and has colors now (previous version did

    not have color).  All in all, this improvement makes reading the screen a lot better.   I'm glad I got it.

  • Anyone try Dreamfields "low-carb" pasta?  What a breakthrough in terms of taste, avoidance of carbo-overload.   The pasta is covered in a fiber, that "shields" most of the carbs from being digested.  What do you think of it?

    Carb Counting

  • Every type 1 diabetic needs to become good at "carb counting" in order to effectively control blood sugars. "Carbs" is the food group for energy, the others being "proteins" - for building muscle, and "fats" - stored energy. Carbs are typically measured in grams and need to be counted to determine individual insulin needs.
    Type 1 vs. Type 2

  • Type 1 is the less common form of diabetes.  In Type 1, the body produces little or no insulin, which is needed for proper cell metabolism.  Insulin is the "key" which opens up cells for glucose to enter and give the body energy.  Untreated diabetes results in significant weight loss and intense thirst since insulin is lacking.  For this reason, a Type 1 person needs to take daily injections of insulin, carefully watch diet (carb-count), regularly test blood-glucose, and regularly exercise. In addition, insulin pump therapy is considered the "tightest" form of control -if followed properly.

     

    In Type 2, the body produces insulin however, it doesn't produce enough of it, or doesn't use it effectively.  For this reason, oral antidiabetic agents are taken which acts to "tickle" the pancreas into production.  In the majority of type 2 cases, obesity is often a cause. Often times when weight is lost in Type 2's,  the diabetes symptoms may disappear.
