I've heard belly dancing is a great way to burn those calories. Our Y offers a program to do just that. I think I might sign up here in the fall.

Julia is just 6. Each time she grows she thins out a bit more. She hardly has any baby fat anymore. It makes it hard to stick her sometimes. I don't think I could even do one of the big sets on her.

That blue thingy on the end has got to be painful going in!!! I'm sorry that happened.

 Hi Jamie!  The youngest that Animas told me was 2 months old on the pump.  My heart broke for the wee one.  How long has Julie been on the pump? I have read people insert on the thigh and I want to say upper arm, don't recall the latter though. Yes, with that age there little bodies are growing.  My best to her. My sons are 26/24, with the youngest one turning 25 November, and fortunately they are not diabetic.  I am concerned about my grandson -6 months-, because her mom and I are both diabetic. With respect to young ones that are diabetic, I personally feel they are smarter than me. That is the life they know. Because of the foods I grew up and such a hard habit to break, which is coming along so much better these days.  Diabetic for 12 years now!  Have a good one now!  CLINK! - Paula

Hi bellyjean..... er.....jellybean.....er......Jamie.  If you start belly dancing I guess we might start calling you bellyjean.    I realize it is an excellent exercise.  You may have very sore muscles for quite some time while you are getting used to it.  Keep that in mind.  That might mean the 4 kids would have to take over the household while you were out of commission.   

I'm sure you will do just fine!   

Richard

Belly dancing is an incredible workout - you use every muscle!  Hey, Richard, how do you know so much about belly dancing?

Janis, I watched belly dancing on TV.  I tried to follow the moves as closely as possible and ended up with a crick in my neck, whiplash and crosseyed!   Faint Richard

Back to pumping you silly  Richard....I wasn't able to test this week for my basal and I know I will for sure soon. My numbers are doing fine and still haven't been able to get a hold of my Endo.  Life goes on I know. CLINK! - Paula

Paula, your endo does not sound very dependable.  Is he/she on vacation or in semi retirement?  Sounds very unusual.  Is it time you look for a new endo?

Richard/Sharon! Heavens NO!  I would have to say it is obviously the timing when I call is all! He is VERY good at getting back with you, the same day and usually about two hours after you call tops. I see him in Oct., and will call Monday to see if I can get in before I head south next month. Should be cool down there, but need precautionary measures! Thank you both for your concern though, it is appreciated.  Just got back with a busy morning....podiatrist said my toe is healing beautiful, had a ingrown removed and call him WHENEVER I have any problems.  He is so sweet/cute!   CLINK! - Paula

Janis....I am testing the basal rate now...do I still take my meds?  I found my "Pumping Insulin" by John Walsh/Ruth Roberts, book and has that with gratf chart et., but nothing of skipping meds, which I don't think I should, but some may lower the insulin too!  Paula

 Was feeling sick for a few...now better.  Anywho!  Did my basal test with numbers as followes: 9a-147/10a-154/11a-134/Noon-105 and last one at 1p-78!  Going to eat lunch now!  Got up late because filled my reservoir at 3a and tested at 101...fell asleep and woke up close to 9a!  CLINK! - Paula

Paula, those numbers are a bit high in the early morning.  Is it that way every morning?  Can't you set a higher basal starting about 3am so it will lower the 9am reading?  I am assuming you start to go high about 3am.  That is about 4 hours after you start your nightime fasting.  Your liver dumps glucose into your system about that time.  The "Morning Phenomenon".  Many diabetics eat a high protein snack at bedtime to keep the liver from doing that.  Then the 9am number should be lower.  Your late morning numbers look great.  Keep working at it!

Hi Paula,
You take your basal insulin, but no mealtime insulin - you won't need it because you are skipping your meal.
Send these results to your physician and ask what he/she suggests you do now.
