Has Anyone Have Experience With The Inpen Injections?

Has Anyone Have Experience With The Inpen Injections?

I’m interested in the Inpen insulin injector along with the Inpen phone app to calcuate precise doses of fast acting insulin. Does anyone in the community have experience with this device? Does it interface with a CGM?

What Are Normal Blood Sugar Levels For A Type 2?

What Are Normal Blood Sugar Levels For A Type 2?

Ya, I know, I already did my piece today but I saw this question on a couple day old link and realized that we have had quite a number of new members who probably got the standard blurb from the Doc when diagnosed recently.

We have all heard it - take this, watch what you eat see you in 3 months.

I sometimes forget myself what it is like to "simply not know and not even know what to ask".

So I will try to answer the question based on the National Standards from the countries that most of our… read more

Recent Diabetic Here! My Sugars Go Up To 9.0 30min After My Meal Then Back Down To 6.0 By The 1hr Mark! Is This Okay?

Recent Diabetic Here! My Sugars Go Up To 9.0 30min After My Meal Then Back Down To 6.0 By The 1hr Mark! Is This Okay?

Ive recently become diabetic and was finger poking to check myself and told my Dr my sugars were never high so we didn't start medication. I got a cgm and have realized it spikes wayyyy up (8-9) but is back down by the 1hr mark so I never noticed. Yes I have protein with my meals (at least 9g). I also get random lows (frequently) but am not on insulin or anything...
Any help please! I thought the 1hr mark was supposed to be where the spike was...

That's what I was thinking, it would stop my body from being able to release sugar during my lows. Oh well, guess I'll just wait for my next appointment
Thanks again for all the advice, it really… read more

How Would I Have Tested Blood Sugar In The Past?

How Would I Have Tested Blood Sugar In The Past?

A little lighter topic today.

The first recorded cases of Diabetes were found in some ancient texts (Egypt 1552 BC).

They had figured out the symptoms but no information on any way to test – probably simply observational.

The next (recorded) reference was India (1000BC) where the disease was named “Madhumeha”.

By 600 BC there was finally some guidance, a way to “detect” diabetes.

So what was the first test?

It was Ants – ya, the little bugs.

The physicians noted that if the “patient”… read more

Is A Low Carb Diet Hazardous To Our Health?

Is A Low Carb Diet Hazardous To Our Health?

There has been a number of discussions "how many carbs is enough, too much etc".

A low carb diet can help (or totally) manage your blood sugars.

Low Carb is not a standard definition but most agree that it's 150 net carbs a day or less.

Two large Diabetes Remission studies determined that if you want to achieve remission (A1C under 5.5) "without meds" then 130 net carbs/day seems to be the maximum.

If often mention the Atkins diets - they have been doing it for years, have great research etc… read more
