I do not have an insulin sensitivity factor. Never heard of it. I have a CGM and keep a very close watch on bg. I correct when necessary, but continual correcting gets old. I have recalibrated...

He use to have a monthly internet show in which he answered questions emailed in. Not sure if he still does it. He is amazing! He maintains an a1c of 4.4 (avg. 83 mg/dl). 78 and in good health.

I meant to say "the FDA only certifies the sensors for only 1 week". However, the name 7+ implies it works longer..... Obviously Dexcom cannot tell us in the official documentation that most...

I have the Dexcom 7+ also. It's not that smart...just restart sensor as if you had replaced it. It then gives you another week. I have heard of some who have tried 3 weeks, but I usually see...

I know CGM's can sound somewhat useless, but they always indicate trends fairly accurately, but are not always letter perfect. I can usually get 2 weeks out of sensors, which vary considerably in...

Taking Lantus at night caused hypos at night. Taking in the morning caused highs at night. So now I take half at night and half in the morning, which keeps me level all day and night. I also have...

An endo would want to do c-peptide and/or gad antibody test to nail the diagnosis. My trip from normal to full type 1 took 2 years....so your story is similar to mine.

Cholesterol dropped like a rock. Probably due to the Simvistatin. Unfortunately, statin drugs also suppress HDL, and that is not good. I quit taking my statin in hopes of raising HDL even more than...

What David saw jumped out at me also. Higher fat with moderate carb intake is not a good combination. Low carbs forces the body to use the fat for energy.

It's mostly a timing issue. Food and insulin metabolize at different rates. With high carb intake you will have a bg spike before the insulin is working. Dr.'s are shooting for A1c's of 6.5, which...
