I've been to a few endocrinologists already.

I recently had a consultation with an RD/CDE that I found on the web. I actually think I found her through the video you posted for me, her video was recommended at the end of that video. Her name is Franziska Spritzler and the company is Low Carb Dietician, LLC. and she seems great so far.

They want me off my pump at this point because I am having to many lows. I dropped down to a 38 the other day and I didn't even feel it.

I have to take my pump off one morning at around 5AM and wait about 5-hours. Then, take my first dose of Toujeo. Going to start off with 5-units and increase 1-unit daily until my numbers are stable. They want me to run a little high; instead of low.

Unlike the pump, I can't "stop" an injection, so I will proceed with caution.

I appreciate all of your help over the course, you've been great. I will keep you posted on my progress and hope to be a better member of this community in the future. In the meantime, I will be lurking.

I hope all is well with you and thank you again!

it sounds like you are producing insulin on your own.

its really confusing and I don't want to guide you in the wrong direction. Type 1 is different than type 2 but it you are type 1.5 or even misdiagnosed and you are type 2, there are ways of treating diabetes better than type 1 (obviously).

Maybe a second opinion might help.

I'm so glad you're getting some guidance. I hope you and the dietitian can work out a good management program for you. Yes, do keep us posted on your progress.

I have been on LCD site often - lots of good articles.

He said Manuka has become so valued in NZ, prices soaring, supplies short, that it's like drug wars!

Anyway, Manuka honey creams/ointments/etc are around from others, I've no monetary interest in his product, but I can definitely recommend it. Truly amazing stuff.

(oops - sorry for the tangent in your thread knarfny!)
FYI - any kind of REAL honey will do this. It doesn't require a special bee or special place. The problem is that there is a lot of fake honey on the market - it's actually corn syrup. Honey is naturally antibacterial which is why it was a popular among healers of old and egyptian embalmers. Make sure you aren't allergic to bees though. Even if you are allergic to bees, you can usually use honey on the skin as it's bee spit, not bee stinger poison.
