    Help w/hypoglycemic episodes

    My 12 yr old grand daughter has been struggling with type 1 w/ketoacidocis now for 1 yr. within the last three months she has had four seizures due to her levels dropping during the night to the twenties. Even when she gets to the ER it takes the doctors forever to get her glucose back to a safe level. Her doctors insist that her parents are over injecting her; this is not the case, they claim this is impossible and would only happen with to much insulin. What else, and has anyone else, ever experienced....

    Cost of insulin

    I got a new job and they said they would have benefits on the first day. Went to go refill my prescription 2 bottles of Lantus and 2 bottles of Humalog and the price was almost $1240, for both prescriptions so about $620 for each one they were pretty close to the same amount and this is a one month supply. So I had to find $1240 to get my prescription and the insurance company would mail me a check for the amount. Why are the prices so high?

    Reverse Your Diabetes

    I have T1, and I have reduced my insulin usage by more than 50%. And as a side I lost over 40 lbs! T2 is totally reversible. Most doctors don't know about this because they have little or no nutrition training in medical school you need to eat a Whole Food Plant Based diet and make it a lifestyle. I felt so lied to at first but then realized they just were never taught. Read Eat to Live or the End Of Diabetes by Dr Joel Fuhrman and join the Facebook group Eat to Live Diabetes Support Group.

  • Talking Constant Glucose Monitors

    Do talking constant glucose monitors exist? I'm asking on behalf of my amazing father who manages his diabetes while being completely blind! Thanks to a talking glucose monitor, which he uses four times a day, he is able to keep track of his glucose readings. However, what we have heard about constant glucose monitors sounds great! If it would tell him what his glucose levels are throughout the day, he could take even better control of his diabetes. Again, I stress that he needs it to speak his....
