Re: [IP] Glucophage with a pump?



What the heck is a nephrologist?  Isn't it tough having to go to all these
different doctors? Sometimes I wish it was like the old days where you went
to one doctor for all your ills! :o)  I have a gyno, an endo, an M.D. a
podo(?) and a eye Dr.and then an occasional dermo.  Then add kids and
husbands to that list with all their seperate doctors,  caring for your
diabetes-no wonder I'm on anti-depressants.
I use to live one day at a time now I take it hourly that's what works best
for me.

Thought of a question this a.m.- what is everyones favorite low treat? -mine
is jelly beans or orange slices.  I remember when I was on shots, when I
would have a low I use to tell myself at least I get to have sugar- Have a
good day everyone  Carol T.
