I’m wondering what type of testing supplies y’all are using. I’ve used all kinds, but after 6 years of working at my local Walmart pharmacy (I’m not working right now, but was working for Ruger, the gun manufacturer, before the cancer), I learned about Relion brand supplies.
At first I started using Relion Prime, which worked just as well for me as did the more expensive brands (your doctor will give you a meter for free, but the test strips are outrageous). After comparing them side by side… read more
I have had Type 2 for several years. I am taking a blood glucose reading twice a day. With my diabetes nurse we are trying to adjust my dosage of Humulin and Victoza. Is there a universally accepted target range for readings. This is what I compiled from various sites. Are these reasonable?

Two months ago, my doctor determined that I am a Type 1 diabetic. I was on long acting insulin at night and since that appointment had fast acting insulin added to my day. I met with my Diabetes Educator yesterday to get information about insulin pumps and I'm still torn on what to do. We talked about the Tandem pump and the OmniPod. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice on either one or pumps in general. I just don't know what to do! I also have no idea what the coat is… read more
