  • Topic: Hungary to punish diabetics if they don’t stick to diet | Shoot Up or Put Up
    from the age of 3 4 and it affects relationships with any kind of health care staff You don t get paid much as a doctor in Hungary and there is never enough money in the healthcare which I suppose makes the health care team frustrated Most people go to be doctors for the prestige But I have to admit My diabetologist was one rare unemphatic with a wide reputation for it But they were all well trained and more knowledgeable than the patients When I left Hungary there was still a different attitude about rapid analoges like they are rewards for those who carb count well not like here where they are almost the only ones in use I suppose if they think the patient doesn t carb count any more than they put them back on the old insulin regime I don t know how could I work shifts on the old ones I struggle to get my Lantus adjusted for busy shifts within 3 days a human insulin only treatment could even make me unemployed at least until I would find a job to suit my insulin I remember I had to beg for years for Novorapid and when I got it at the age of 14 I just had my snacks officially skipped had to keep eating midday to keep my glucose on 4 anyway which I never told my very kind diabetologist I was 19 and about to leave the country when I had my first carb to insulin unit ratio until than it was just my snack free Actrapid Pumps are a half or non funded rare thing and CGMs are a hospital thing to prove that the patient can have good glucose for three days laying in a hospital bed so it must be the patient overeating from 3am to 8 9am messing up the rest of the day I had that particular humiliation in front of my entire medical team I still have a sort of white coat fear last time I was in the waiting room a nurse assumed I was a newbie because I get so nervous like before an exam But there are some things I am not sure about in UK diabetic care like do you take your readings to the appointment or you just explain the main patterns Last time I was at the western the diabetologist looked like I gave her too many numbers I thought it s better to check more before going to have something to work with 3 May 2013 at 11 48 am 15340 Tim Keymaster I think what you take along to your appointments in the UK varies from person to person Personally I don t really take much along with me and we just chat about general patterns or any problems I might or might not be having I take the view that the appointment is for your benefit rather than the doctor s After all you re the one

    into single figures 1 April 2013 at 9 10 am 14539 Anonymous Still keeping the levels level overnight but spiking after meals Does this mean that my carb ratio needs adjusting So far I ve just been working on the basal rates Finding that I spend my whole day testing and correcting high BG levels 1 April 2013 at 1 49 pm 14540 Tim Keymaster Could be the cab ratio When I started on the pump I just worked on basals and ignored post meal spikes until I thought I d got the basals worked out a few weeks of high BGs isn t oging to kill you I found it too difficult to work on basals and ratios at the same time but then I m a bit thick 2 April 2013 at 10 55 am 14541 Anonymous Been to see Aunty Joan this morning and she s sorted out my carb ratios for me as well as reducing my target area to 7 0 I was on 1 8 but now I m on 1 5 which is pretty much what I was on with the pen Here s hoping I did a test in the clinic an hour after breakfast to prove my point 21 0 Been working on the basals myself and not doing any damage 5 April 2013 at 8 02 am 14542 Anonymous Yet another set change this morning I ve been doing so many correction doses it s not lasting the recommended 3 days Rather than be woken by the pump alarm a wonderful electronic rendition of Beethoven s Für Elise which offends my musical ear at 4am on a Saturday I decided to change the cartridge this morning last change was on Weds morning The previous set was a bit nippy when the insulin went in so a change has made things a bit more comfy Levels went up overnight last night for some weird reason 11 5 up to 14 0 despite having 2 85 units on board when I turned in for the night Not sure why unless I ve been sleepwalking and eating crisps 10 April 2013 at 8 13 am 14547 Anonymous Things are improving day by day No results in double figures all weekend and no hypos either It s now Wednesday and I ve had a couple of hypos but I will learn to gauge the CHO in risotto a bit more accurately in future Only snag is that the cartridge really won t last 3 days at this rate so I m having to change the infusion set every second day Either I live with this or eat lower carb meals I m now finding places where the set works really well and others where it s a bit uncomfortable Totally accustomed now to not injecting after meals And I ve only had one collision with a door handle All positive stuff Long may it continue 10 April 2013 at 8 22 am 14548 Annette
