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?
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".

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...

So what was the first test?
It was Ants – ya, the little bugs.
The physicians noted that if the “patient”… read more

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.
It kinda depends and it gets complicated but I will try and explain.
We all know that carbs get converted to blood sugar but so does free protein (that's protein that has not yet been converted and… read more
