LADA Awareness Week

It's LADA Awareness Week.

- What is LADA?

Note: This article mentions "double diabetes" which is different from LADA, not another name for it - I'm not sure where that particular misconception is coming from.

Trial Time

Ping and 522
Originally uploaded by lilituc.

Anyone else feel like pump technology hasn't advanced all that much recently? I've had my 522 for about 3.5 years now, and the new "upgrade" seems to be features that other pumps already had before I got mine.

So I'm looking into other options. I feel like I know way too much about other pumps and why they wouldn't work for me. The Nipro Amigo is cute, but only has one infusion set available, and I'm allergic to it. The Accucheck Spirit comes with a PDA, which I love, but it doesn't talk to the pump; it just calculates your dose because there's no bolus calculator on the pump itself.

So I'm doing a trial of the Ping.

Long Time

I've been absent from the blogging world, mainly because I got a job last year. Pretty much all I do these days is work. We don't have personal-use internet where I work, so I've been away from anything I can't access from my phone.

Since I've been working again, diabetes has really shifted to the background. I haven't been testing as much as I want to, or looking at the data as much. I suppose it's my upcoming endo appointment, but I want to try to get back to that.

My pump warranty is up soon, so I will be looking at what's available now. I just found out about Colorware last week - am I the only one who wishes we could do that with our diabetes devices? Awesome.
