    Yeah being on the insulin pump is a lot easier, like you said. I can
    basically eat anything that I normally couldn’t if I wasn’t on the pump and
    no carb counting. Though to some extent I try to put a limit on my
    carbohydrate rate each day. I haven’t experienced any weight gain which is
    great! With a height of 6’2 and a weight of 180 i’m doing something right.
    lol.However, I like the idea how you account for each carb you eat. No I
    haven’t heard of tudiabetes. Are you on it? I’ll go check it out

    “check your blood sugars” hahaha. for me, all diabetic chapter makes sense.
    it flows, man. but i have some troubles with insulin regimens. the
    combination therapy, to be exact. NPH regular 70/30 and nclex questions
    like ” when do you check for hypoglycemia if the patient had NPH/regular in
    the morning and at 6 pm” kinda thing. It kills me. I get it right
    eventually, when i calculate the peak, but do you have a trick to do this
    fast ? you know, like memorizing tips :) thank you, edgar :)

    It works wonders! In my view, I think it’s the best biomedical invention
    that came to the market for diabetes. My Medtronic MiniMed insulin pump is
    probably the only reason why my A1C is at that kind of range (5.5-6.2). I
    would never see myself going back to shots due to the pump. And plus mixing
    the two types of insulin for each shot was such a burden at times. When I
    was first diagnosed, the nurses actually suggested that I should try using
    a insulin pump to better control my numbers.

    Please comment on longterm nutritional changes to reverse diabetes and
    heart disease. Do vegetarians and vegans have a lower incidence of diabetes
    and heart disease? Seems to me nutrition is overlooked by the medical
    community and simply push drugs to treat diseases. Any thoughts anyone?

    Nah I wish I was taking diabetic oral meds. Would probably be better than
    being attached to a insulin pump. I’m just curious to see why my
    endocrinologist would say that my average blood glucose of 5.6 for 3 months
    is low and that I should be at 6.0 or above. A 5.6 overall bg averages out
    to a 122 bg level on the A1C charts which is great. Also, I don’t get that
    many low bg numbers either. I might get 3 numbers around a bg of 40 – 60 in
    a week. When do you think there will be a cure for T1?

    Great Information!!!

    thank you. i appreciate all your videos. i do have one correction though,
    if a hypoglycemic pt is conscious they can take glucose paste, if they are
    unconscious, and you have iv access, you can give them D50, if you can’t
    get iv access then you give them 1mg IM glucagon. glucagon is not sugar. it
    stimulates the liver to convert stored glycogen into glucose

    Thank you, that was very informative! I was wondering what happened to your
    other account. Good to see your videos again :)

    That constant beating noise in the background was very annoying. It was
    hard to listen to this with that noise. Other than that your video was very
    well done. I applaud you.

    WOW! You are a life saver :) I have an exam tomorrow on DM1&2, and this was
    very helpful. I am very grateful. Have you ever thought of doing a video on
    electrolytes.. :)

    important to teach, but never explained HOW!

    Wow really?? Don’t get me wrong, my endo is a really nice guy. I just donno
    if he knows what he’s talking about sometimes. I’m basically my own doctor
    when it comes to type 1 diabetes. lol.. I know when i’m having a high or a
    low bg. That’s wonderful to hear that you’re keeping your blood sugars at a
    good range. :) Yeah I try to keep my a1c level at around a range of 5.5 to
    6.2. But your a1cs are amazing! How many times do you check your blood
    sugar on a given day?

    nice and efficient are too different things, You should get a second
    opinion. Like i said at least make an apt with a diff endo to see what they
    tell u. I talked to my other 2 diff doctors, one that manages my diabetes
    and the other on my diabetic care team while i was pregnant and they both
    said the same thing that they couldn’t believe he was telling me that, my
    numbers were in a good range. Basically he was telling me to eat crappier

    I was 19 when I was diagnosed with type 1. My a1c are like a normal person
    which gives me piece of mind bcuz the better the a1c the less chance of
    diabetic complications. I have thought about a pump but i feel it would be
    easier to eat more bad things,every time i inject i feel accountable for
    what im eating for that slight pain, i feel like if i had a pump it would
    be easier just to give myself a dose of med when i eat something bad and
    since it wouldnt hurt I probably would indulge more

    I’ve been diabetic 2 for 13 yrs, and I learned some things from you. Always
    been told don’t do this or that but never why. My liver and kidneys are
    enlarged but don’t know why. Have a ct scan soon. Wish I knew what was
    going on. It’s scary.

    @ekho Your Welcome, Yeah Diabetes is more common than people think. It runs
    very high in our Hispanic/latino americans, African Americans and Asian
    Americans. BTW Good luck on your patho exam and thanks for your input!!
