    Somebody told me I might have diabetes because I am overly thirsty.
    Is that true?
    How do I tell if I have diabetes?
    There are different types right?
    What are they?

  2. I have type one diabetes. I wanted to know what the chances of my kids getting diabetes would be. I don’t have kids yet, but was wondering for when I do have kids. My boyfriend doesn’t have diabetes.

    Hope everything ends up OK for your dad. I think it takes longer and there are more tests to diagnose type 2 than what was needed to diagnose you with type 1. They will probably have your dad do a glucose tolerance test and some bloodwork. So don’t worry too much if he doesn’t get an answer right away.

    Since I don’t have a minimed or omnipod, it wouldn’t be fair for me to weigh in. I am not sure which one I would get if I had to get a new pump.

    hey! i am getting a minimed pump. i recommend visiting the websites for each pump [animas, minimed, and omnipod] there might be some others…and just see which one you like best!

    just curious…how does switching to Lantus make you more “free” rather than NPH? i still can’t exactly eat when i want, or have the ability to skip a meal.

    Yeah, I will definetly visit those websites. My doc. said that she is either going to put me on the minimed or omnipod because those r the ones that she likes the most. I think that Lantus gives me waaaay more freedom then NPH because my meals are no longer restricted to a cirtain # of carbs, rather I can choose how much I want to eat. I also have more flexability of when I can eat. For example, when I was on NPH, I had to eat breakfast at 7:00, lunch at 11:30, and dinner at 7:00.I alsoHadSnacks

    i see. that makes sense now, you are carb counting right?
