    I’m not sure about pulling it off without pulling off the sensor, but I’ve seen some people cut out a bit of card or something, and then put that over the sensor and then the tape over that. I’ve also seen people […]

    He has already appointed himself Chief Pump Investigator!

    I would like to say that I’m sure Shoot Up readers are of a different class but, well… 😛

    I’m personally disappointed to know that you have not been cured – I was hoping you were going to say you had been and share your secret with us all (it’s cinnamon, isn’t it?

    I have also created a tiny human! […]

  • This is an excellent point. Though I feel both are partly to blame. Yelling “CARTER AND BANTING!!!” seems a little long though. Perhaps I’ll just go with how I’m feeling at the time…

  • The next time I am subject to one of these irritations I know I can comfortably rage “BANTING!!!” at the sky and shake my fist, in the style of Wrath of Khan. 😀

  • I’ll have you know that I am always right, about everything!*

    But then I also agree with most of the points made in the comments, so does that mean that everyone else it right too? Maybe it’s just ShootUp […]

  • Oooh Data! I love comparing data! Here’s mine (please note I am apparently weird and a bit backward according to my hospital…):

    Basal 1:
    00 – 02 0.75
    02 – 04 1.4
    04 – 06 0.75
    06 – 08 1.1
    08 – 11 […]

  • Ohhh…I’ve been coveting the mysugr app for a while, but unfortunately I’m one of those Android types, and they still don’t have it available yet 🙁 *waits not-so-patiently*

  • Wow – that is really impressive! Your strategy worked really well 🙂 I really can’t imagine how people deal with things like this on MDI!

  • Hi Donald, I use Diasend and I definitely didn’t need a rep or DSN to set it up – can’t quite remember what I did though! If you click on the log in does it give you the option to register? Are you doing it via the website?

    There are two that I’ve used and found quite useful – OnTrack and BG Monitor. They each have pros and cons, but I’m using BG Monitor at the moment as I like the charts it produces, and it gives you nice rolling […]

  • This is the part that I’m really not looking forward to – everything else is going to be difficult, but I can already hear the conversations I’m going to have, especially trying to get liver doctors, diabetes […]

  • Lol! In short, it’s similar to what Alison has written in her last section – control. With diabetes, I can see what’s going on with blood testing, and I can take action, whether it’s by insulin, food, or something […]

  • First of all: Congratulations on the baby news! I think I missed it earlier but I was so pleased to read about your news 🙂 (And on a completely selfish note, I’ll be following your diabetes/pregnancy story with […]

  • 3 minutes 6 seconds! Damn!

    On an animas, with everything in front of me but nothing opened, up to filling the canula at the end…

    (I’m sure the fact that I hit a blood vessel and had to change the site […]

  • Oh dammit, I just did one this morning! Though it was a very lazy one, since I was checking my emails at the same time so I would never have won…

    (Delicate medical procedure! HA!)

  • “I was watching Sir Steve Redgrave carrying the Olympic torch, and my main interest was trying to spot where he’d hidden his pump.”

    This made me laugh, because I did the exact same thing!

    I am totally a […]

  • omg you’ve never lived!!!!! The added joy of getting to pick between two infusion sets on those wonderful set change days is just amazing…* *disclaimer: am high on painkillers as a result of toothache, so any statements made may be complete rubbish In all seriousness, I usually get two different sets in my delivery, mainly […]

  • These are the kinds of things that I wish more people understood about diabetes – you can control the amount of food, the amount of insulin, exercise etc, but you just can’t control things like stress or hormones or your body’s response to it! I work in a biochemistry lab, and there have definitely been […]

  • I tend to leave my old set in for a couple of hours, so this isn’t one I’ve personally done. I have, however, lost count of the number of times I’ve pressed the buttons on the set whanger in thing (TM) only to discover that I forgot to take the plastic off the sticky bit… […]
