- Do you know anyone using the T-slim pump and do they like it? Since our endocrinologist is not pump savvy, should I look for one who also as an educator and nurse? (16 May 2013)
- Newly diagnosed, our daughter's blood sugar was 250 mg/dl [13.9 mmol/L] at 11:30 p.m. We gave her two glasses of water. Should we do a correction or wait? (16 May 2013)
- In a drug test for employment, my daughter tested positive for cocaine, which she says she had not used. I saw on the Internet that diabetes may result in a false positive. What should we do? (16 May 2013)
- My daughter was put on high dose estrogen pills for severe menstrual bleeding. Her blood sugars then went up, as did her A1c. Was this an appropriate treatment for a teen with type 1? Blood work also shows her AST is elevated from taking the pills. Do I need to worry about liver damage? (8 May 2013)
