  • Re: Glucotrack
    its discrete or not Its my life and health Surely it needs to be accurate for anyone to benefit from it If it works the technology will also get smaller and smaller My main point was however to point out that a CE mark does not guarantee that the device is coming to market Many things can succeed in the lab but making it a clinical care and commercial success

    Limited Until today those resources were LCT owned and DOL paid for usage ad hoc As a diabetic Type 1 I think though it is very good news as those 55 LCT staff members are now solely DOL focused Essentially DOL is the vehicle we need to drive commercial success out of the Diabcell from LCT DOL will continue the clinical work scale manufacturing and then commercialize the solution to

    pump they download the data and then pick apart ALL of his decisions and misses They have good intentions for sure but my 18 year old is tired of the judgment and thinks he can handle it himself His doctor retired and his last visit was a fiasco I was rather pissed myself at their textbook doctoring diabetes management is nothing more than algorithms and life choking monitoring His A1C s are around 8 now He is a great kid but a bit hardheaded We have a great father son relationship and really only get into it about his care diligence Frustrating for me in that he is a smart kid but still slightly defiant about his T1 I need to find solutions as he gets further and further from our oversight I can force the issue as I occasionally had to do while he was growing up but I need an adult version of care for an 18 year old kid Can anyone relate I am trying to find a middle point to keep him healthy while he takes control He is gone a lot college and work and thinks everything is fine the way it is Apologize for

    it assumes that the inability to produce adequate amounts of insulin will have the same impact on all the varied somatotypes and physiologies of patients which is clearly untrue For a long time in the history of medicine there were two schools of thought the one holding that the real entities to study were diseases since they were essentially the same from one patient to the other the other holding that the real entities to study were individual patients since each person would have his or her own experience of disease according to personal biological features The former school won out with the latter now confined to homeopathy but the point remains valid for diabetes Given the different beta cell deficits in each type 1 patient as well as with the unique response of each patient to hyperglycemic stress autoimmunity inherited vascular and neurological health etc individuality is central in the treatment of type 1 diabetes but most physicians treat diabetics under the one size fits all model much to the patients disadvantage Medicine suffers from being a lucrative profession as well as a science so preserving the reputation of physicians specialists and the profession itself often inspires a non scientific approach The standard rank order of blaming when a clinical outcome is disappointing is that patient non compliance has first preference in assigning blame after which come the nurses the interns the endocrinology fellows the ordinary physicians the specialists and only then the most insulated target of all Big Pharma Since none of the upper echelons can ever be wrong the inevitable inability of subcutaneous insulin to match the performance of physiologically titrated insulin has to be ascribed to patient non compliance The fact that many type 1 patients are treated by endocrinologists who typically expect to be able

    the dosages of insulin I inject through my shirts when out of the home and reuse my needles until dull I ve never gotten an infection from this despite 25 years as a t1 There is so much B sh t when it comes to managing diabetes and I feel for your son he has it partially right 8 is a fairly high A1C and he needs to do better even though it is difficult My A1c last was 6 8 and I would like it to be in the low 6s The only way I know how to get there is through frequent testing adjusting exercise Each of these is equally important I have been failing in the exercise part Ignore the doc The last time I went the nurse started asking me about the amount of meat fats consumed Before I answered I excoriated her on quack questions informing her that there is no evidence that high cholesterol consumption is a cause of high blood cholesterol She stopped asking me questions Read Dr Bernstein s he is T1 diabetes solution I have but do not follow his advice to the letter He recommend weight exercise I do anaerobic

    reading idealistic scenarios from a generic text book that only see you with 3 month intervals I have had T1 for 40 years and since 18 21 yo only seen the Endo every 6 months or so Tried the pumps but stopped as too much trouble with infusion set pump maintenance airport security controls removal for sports and water activities etc On Lantus in the morning and NovoRapid which does as well as the pump without all the permanent hassle and uncertainties I do have a BG meter that allows great tracking for min 3 months and download to PC report graphics etc at home incl spot on assessment of A1c etc Roche Accu Check Mobile You can yourself see specific patterns helping to adjust a bit here and there eating habits and insulin injections or just confirm your own suspicion You are your own best expert knowing yourself better than anybody else Proper Endo s confirm this Bringing the graphics reports to the Endo visit document that you do care and do what is within reason which leaves them satisfied Have had my A1c in the 7 0 7 5 range for last 25 years Getting lower would be possible but with the risk of too many severe lows in between and a much more intense stressful life with T1 I measure the BG just before taking insulin for each main meal Find it the right thing to do with the modern fast acting insulin available to cover any specific need compared to where your BG already is your hunger and your type of meal Previously the frequent visits to the hospital as T1 were necessary as back then your full diet carbo intake and insulin regime were fixed day in and out Your Endo dietician would then adjust
