I want to be a good diabetic.

Help?

Question to ALL diabetics. Because I am now 18 do I need doctor approval to get on the pump or can I demand it from my endo?????

lollingpancreas:

I have a question. Have any of you ever had a kidney infection? I’ve been feverish/sick the last few days and I’ve also been having insanely intense acute mid-lower back pain. I don’t have back problems, so this was kind of out of the blue. It comes and goes. And when it…

Sounds like one. I had a kidney infection with no other symptoms besides the horrible lower back pain ! Go to the doctor they’ll give you antibiotics and pain meds !

I’m so fucked. Kiss my pump goodbye. I’ll never get it. I don’t even know why i thought i could be good enough to get it. After i turn 19 my insurance wont cover it anyways.

What’s your insurance companies reasons for not covering it once you turn 19?

I’m on state inserance..

Diabetic and drinking

What’s your take on this? How do you drink and not wake up with crazy high numbers. My 21st is coming up and I know drinks will be involved but I know anytime I had a few drinks before I felt like death and not hungover death but meter reading “Hi” all day death

I just drink whiskey, and when I wake up my blood sugar is always perfect whether or not I ate while drinking.

Try looking for drinks with low amounts of sugar, i always drink shots like cherry bombs with sugar free red bull && ciroc usually sits okay with me, try taking insulin before you start drinking, eat something with protine and drink. Thats what i do.

I’m all the way in a differnt town (Where i work, 20 mins from my house) With only 20 Units left in my pen and no levimur… fuck me lifeeeeeeeee. i want to cry.

I’m so fucked. Kiss my pump goodbye. I’ll never get it. I don’t even know why i thought i could be good enough to get it. After i turn 19 my insurance wont cover it anyways.
