Kim – “Texting My Pancreas”
Kim was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of six. In 2003 she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Her diabetes management tools include her CGM (that she has affectionately named Jim) and her insulin pump. Born and raised in Nebraska (with a brief stint in Connecticut), Kim has found that growing up with type 1 can be a struggle at times. In late 2009, she discovered the diabetes online community, which has provided her with a great deal of support in helping to alleviate the anxieties, fears, and feelings of isolation that living with diabetes can bring. She started her blog Texting My Pancreas in the summer of 2010 and has also become active with the JDRF. Visit Kim’s Blog: “Texting My Pancreas”.

Suddenly, Bloggers.

“How Are You Managing Your Diabetes”?
Are you asking what devices I use? A glucose meter, an insulin pump, and a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), mostly. Sometimes my phone joins the party. I know that the tools I use are not indicative of how “bad” my diabetes is, but I recognize that you may not know this.  Are you asking about… Read More

A Bad Habit.
When my endocrinologist downloads the data from my Dexcom receiver later today during my appointment, she’s bound to notice quite a few gaps – like the one last night, where there will be no data from around 11:30 pm until I woke up this morning at 5:45 am.  You see, about a half hour before… Read More

Five Years.
Five years ago today, my insulin pump died and a photographer didn’t show up. Oh, and I got to marry my best friend.  It was a full day.  It also taught me that one should never stuff an insulin pump under a pair of Spanx in 80+ degree heat while wearing a heavy satin gown. LEARN FROM MY… Read More

T:slim Improv.
Sometimes you promptly lose the “keys” that come with your pump - the ones required to loosen the cartridge from the pump body when you need to change parts out – and really the job is only suited for a skinny, hard, plastic thing, so you have to improvise.  Welcome to The Pumpered Chef…. Read More

Anatomy of a Dexcom Graph.
var linkwithin_site_id = 1586671;   At first glance this graph looks… not fun, but something along the lines of “you were running high, did a correction bolus, and then you were low”.  But looking at it another way, it’s:  1. “Why is this high so sticky? I under-bolused for that… Read More
