  • Edit option still needed.

    I often notice after I post that I have errors when I go back to read it. I just posted a comment to the egg article and I noticed errors after the post. Additionally, there is no way to format. My post would have been better if there were a way to put the data in two columns so it would line up...

  • T1 Kids with T1 Friends

    So I've been thinking about this lately. We've never felt a tremendous need for our son to have friends who also have diabetes. We did send him to a diabetes summer camp early on. He had some fun but certainly didn't love it. Perhaps it is because we've tried to make sure that his diabetes...

  • Is Everybody Understanding the Points?

    So, one of the main themes of the early feedback we got was questioning the point system. I was just wondering (especially for those who have used the site the most), do you feel like you understand now how the points work and what they're for? Or is it still confusing?

  • Pumping It: I'm still learning.

    After managing my diabetes with insulin shots for years, last year I finally had an insurance plan that would cover 80% of an insulin pump. A year later, I still feel like I'm learning how to manage with it. My biggest problem seems to come from the pump site going bad. I know I'm supposed...

  • Pump Woes

    I've had a Cozmo pump for almost 5 years. I'm now on something like my 4th or 5th pump. I have gotten new pumps for various reasons, however one of the more disappointing ones was this: During the summer a couple years ago I had a water-fight with my siblings. Of course I always take my pump...

    Hey, my Diabetic Connect friends. I was just wondering what you thought of the Recipe spotlight on the home page. Currently we're displaying the name of the recipe with the nutrition facts. Is that the best way to highlight a recipe in your mind? Or would you rather see the ingredients or...

  • Do you qualify?

    There is an array of different users on the site now so I thought I would ask, do you have health insurance? From what I can see, most are out West. I am in the far East, Central New York (or Upstate New York). I have been without health insurance for almost a year now. It has been a struggle....
