  1. Diabetes Treatment
    I'm so glad I found this forum. I have spent a lot of time reading and learning, since starting insulin about a month ago. Question: my doc stopped my glimepiride and started me on Lantus and Novolog. She continued the Januvia, and the DM Educator I went to said I should stay on it, too...

In a Bloomberg.com article today (mostly on cancer drugs & medical resistance to cost increases) there was this paragraph toward the end: "This year, Express Scripts excluded certain diabetes drugs from Novo Nordisk A/S from its main...

    My type 1 wife and I have sometimes talked about whether it is better for type 1s to eat slow-burning carbs (low GI) or fast-burning carbs (high GI). Of course, it's well known that slow metabolism of carbs is a good thing for type 2s. However, our wondering is based on the fact that her bolus...
  7. Diabetes Medication and Supplies
    I am a T2 that seemingly cannot produce any insulin anymore. Been aware of diabetes since diagnosed in 1994. Probably had high BSL's for a decade before that. Had gestational diabetes years ago. I have been reading "Think Like a Pancreas" and "Using Insulin". Great books! Scared me at first as...
