I Tried to Restart my Dexcom G6 Sensor
So yeah, I tried to restart the Dexcom G6 sensor.  And it didn’t work. No offense, Dexcom. I respect your work and I love, love the data from this device.  My health is, without fail, better for the introduction of a CGM into my life. But this shit is expensive, and cost is often a… Read More

Selective Sweet Tooth
I love going out on the town for the night And having a meal by a soft candlelight (Because I know, at a restaurant, meals are yummy; For the food isn’t prepped, touched, or cooked by me.) But to dine with type 1 can be quite complex, Because restaurant food has a whole set of specs That require… Read More

Your Mama So Awesome …
Your mama so awesome that she dragged measuring cups and a tiny scale to restaurants so she could accurately carb count your food. Your mama so awesome that she hand-fed you graham crackers while you had a logic-defying low on the kitchen floor. Your mama so awesome she woke up in the middle of the… Read More

Actually Using the Dexcom G6
Disclosure:  I received my Dexcom G6 as part of the initial PR roll out, once it was approved and available.  I am also part of the Dexcom Warriors program.  But my supplies all go through insurance and my deductible is gross.  For more on my disclosures, click here.   I wasn’t home when… Read More

Like a (Dexcom) G6
First impressions of the Dexcom G6 on the blog tomorrow, but today it’s all about the old song that I pretended not to know all the words to. Popping Dexcoms in my legs, like active beta No need to calibrate, I’m throwing out mad data Sippin’ coffee in my ride, in my ride, A1C 6?… Read More

Teenageabetes
My diabetes blog turns 13 today.  Teenageabetes, in the bloggiest sense.  And fitting that my diabetes doesn’t always want to talk to me, has friends I don’t particularly care for, and only listens to me when I threaten it. And thanks to the weird math of birthdays, that means… Read More

The Diabetic Survivor: Interview with the Artist
I love when diabetes goes visible.  Artistic interpretations of life with diabetes are my favorite, because they have this way of distilling diabetes down to a single image that says so much.  I felt that way when I stumbled upon thediabeticsurvivor’s Instagram account, where simple… Read More

20 Months.
Dear little man, So … monthly letters?  I’ve kind of fallen off the wagon in terms of keeping up with those.  But I have a good excuse:  you. Kid, you are busy.  You don’t sit still.  You like moving.  You laugh loudly and then run off while simultaneously escaping from your… Read More

A StayPut Medical Giveaway!
A few months ago, I stumbled upon StayPut Medical and tried one of these overlay tapes out over a Dexcom G5 sensor.  And even with a history of wonky adhesive issues and easily irritated skin, this tape helped my sensor hold tight, without issue.   Thankful for the free trial sample and eager to… Read More

Urine Charge with the Pee Alarm
Before I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I started wetting the bed.  I was six years old. We didn’t know to check for diabetes.  I wasn’t exhibiting any other symptoms.  But on a somewhat regular basis, my mother was changing my sheets and I was turning my pajamas into soggy… Read More

38th Diaversary
Today makes 38 (!!) years of living with type 1 diabetes. While diabetes itself is nothing to celebrate, each year I make a point to acknowledge and celebrate (even if just internally) all of the hard work I do to take good care of myself. It’s never easy, and diabetes is always a lot of… Read More

Victoza for T1D: A Few Weeks In.
I’m on my fourth week of Victoza.  Here’s the good, the bad, and the reminder that none of this even remotely resembles medical advice for the love of Loopy. THE GOOD: My numbers have been excellent.  Truly excellent.  And I’m the last person who is going to post perfect CGM… Read More

A Look at Body Posi Betes
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Georgie Peters when I was visiting Australia.  This woman is a force – a combination of positivity and raw honesty, writing about her lived experience with type 1 diabetes.  She’s written here before and today she’s visiting… Read More

Visualizing Diabetes
Last week, I had the pleasure of connecting with Katie McCurdy through my work at The Patient Revolution, and she and I talked about her health visualization tool, Pictal.  (That interview can be found on the Patient Revolution blog.) From the article: “Pictal is a set of worksheets that… Read More

CGM: Cat Glucose Monitor?
This post is from 8 years ago, originally published in 2010 on dLife as part of my column at Generation D.  (Man, this post is old.  This is before Birdy.)  Abby was the best cat ever (sorry, Siah), and her ability to sniff out a low blood sugar is only bested by my Dexcom.  Because I totally… Read More

I Can’t Feel My Face
BEEP BEEP BEEP!! Insistent noise, drowned out only slightly by the sound of two toddlers dunking basketballs on each other in the living room. “Do you have any juice?” My friend reaches into her fridge and pulls out a 1/4 full carton of lemonade.  “Would this work?” She and… Read More

The One About Steel Magnolias
I remember sitting down to watch this movie, not knowing how it ended. “How scary can it be?  Julia Roberts has such a big laugh.  Mom likes Sally Field.  Diabetes in it, too?  That’s cool.  Let’s make some popcorn.” record scratch Narrator’s voice:  Yeah, that… Read More

Victoza for T1D?
I am way behind the curve on any drugs that have been making the off-label rounds in the type 1 diabetes community because I was attempting pregnancy/actually pregnant/then breastfeeding my son for almost four years in total.  I wasn’t willing or able to dabble in anything deemed… Read More

Ramble On
Bullet points?  Yep. Easter came and went.  We colored a few dozen eggs and now everyone in my home will be eating hard boiled eggs until we’re all old and wrinkly. Which I am becoming.  My daughter asked me if I was mad, and I said no, and she said, “Oh good.  Your forehead looked… Read More

Dexcom G6 Approved by FDA
Thirty-one years ago, I was checking my blood sugar with this giant lancing device, using a heavy brick of a glucose meter, and chasing my blood sugars with Regular and NPH insulin.  If you told me that the future of diabetes would include streaming video of where my blood sugars have been and… Read More

Instagram Artwork: An Interview with Danielle Newett

Reclaiming my time in range
My morning blood sugar seems to set the stage for my whole day. Yawn.  94 mg/dL to start my day?  Hell yeah.  It becomes a whole new version of those coffee commercials, where a sleepy someone rubs their eyes and stretches their arms above their head, lifted Pepé Le Pew style out of bed and… Read More

Great Job! Stellar! You’re a Star!
Man, all of this.  The big mountain that is “the healthcare system?”  That thing seems gigantic. But small changes make a big difference.  I think about the stickers I used to get on my school papers back in grade school.  The happy, bright yellow star grinning its toothless grin at… Read More

Staying hydrated with The Right Cup
Fun brain tricks that help me drink more water. I am trying to drink more water. I’m not abandoning Diet Coke (never that), but I think it’d be a good idea for me to drink more water, too. So when the folks at “The Right Cup™” asked if I’d like to take a look at… Read More
