Hello everyone, It has been so long since I have been on hear and I have missed all of you. I am still battling with my diabetes, and insulin allergy. I have to go to hospital every 2 months for an insulin infusion which takes 2 weeks, I tried insulin desensitising without success. The next step is an insulin pump that is on the inside of me so I do not have to touch the skin, but it is only available for type 1s , my endo is putting up a fuss to try and get me on the list. My sugar levels are in the high 20s( do not know what that is for others) and I am having all the problems associated with poorly managed diabetes. But hey guys if you can still smile at the end of the day then you are doing ok. I hope that you all are doing well also

Sorry to learn you are having such difficulty with your insulin.

I continue on my dialysis 3 x week for 4 hrs per session. I am otherwise doing OK.

Watch out for flying buffaloes! LoL!

God's best to you and yours

Hi Narelle! Glad to hear from you again but sorry to hear that you're struggling with your BG's. (high 20's mmol translate to over 450mg/dl). Hoping you get the approval to try pumping…I've been pumping since 2011 and it has given me better control. Wishing you well!
Hugs,
Lou

I have missed you. I am sorry that the infusions are not helping, and I hope your Doctor can talk some sense into the folks they need to get you the internal pump. My husband has an internal pump for other reasons, but it is a life saver for him, I hope it will be for you also. Good to see you are still around and smiling!!
