    Help needed, father continuous painful hiccups for over a year

    ********** CURRENT PROBLEM ********** Hi, Thank you very much for your time and attention. It is a long description but I think it was important to include. I have tried to make it as readable as possible. My father who is 70 years old has been experiencing continuous hiccups for a year now.

Almost all of them informed us it....

    Due to insurance change I have needed to change physicians. New insurance won't cover U 500 which I've taken for years! New provider prescribed Toujeo 150 units in the am. and 100 units at night. My gut is telling me that is way too much! I haven't started it yet. Anyone else take that much? I'll call them but I'm not very confident in them. They prescribed syringes instead of pen needles twice before I got what I needed and I received no consulting on the insulin change! Thoughts....

    Hello. Info

    I don't personally have diabetes, but my boyfriend who I have been dating for 8 months now, has it. He didn't understand how to manage it for years (not even his own mother helped from what I can see) and now that he has me he wants to get it under control. It's hard to understand some of it, but I have been reading about it for a while now, and I just wanna understand and talk to people who do have it. I know what diabetes is and how its works because my grandpa had it. My boyfriend....

    Insulin pump

    My doctor recently asked me if I've ever considered an insulin pump. Apparently my pancreas isn't working as well as it did in the past. I know a little about the pump, but what should I consider? I don't really have an active lifestyle, but I do travel a lot. I also love to eat. Food is my weakness.
