    promising a droid version for you iPhobes but it is currently available in the App store for fruit based phone iPod iPad owners Excellent data input handling search yay reporting averaging inc copious notes and tagging if you like that sort of thing even TBR duration etc for pumpers and a quirky sense of humour that even manages to make logging kinda fun Hard to believe I know 12 August 2013 at 5 11 pm 15451 Anonymous Oh link if anyone wants to check it out http mysugr com companion 12 August 2013 at 6 10 pm 15452 Anonymous Downloaded it already think I am going to have fun with my diabetes monster 12 August 2013 at 9 06 pm 15453 Angie Participant Ohhh I ve been coveting the mysugr app for a while but unfortunately I m one of those Android types and they still don t have it available yet waits not so patiently 13 August 2013 at 2 32 pm 15455 Anonymous Drop Frederik a line Angie a T1 himself He might be able to put you on the beta tester team for the droid version if you are able to provide feedback on bugs etc 18 August 2013 at 8 38 pm 15456 Anonymous I downloaded mySugr a couple of weeks ago and must admit it s a bit of fun It would be nice to change a few of the tags to make it more personalised but otherwise it s all there Not sure whether I m prepared to pay for the pro version though The other app I use is Track3 which does everything I need it too and allows me to tailor it more but is lacking a little green monster 20 August 2013 at 11 58 am 15457 Anonymous I tend to either run non pro or just use the weekly challenges to a keep me going and b give me a possible 6 9 days of Pro every week For many though I guess the Pro payment would just be easier and at least it keeps the company going 23 August 2013 at 8 42 am 15458 Anonymous I saw mySugr mentioned a few times on English speaking blogs I have to admit when I checked the webpage their this app is especially useful for children turned me away again Might have to overcome my reluctance and give it another go with this much positive feedback 16 January 2014 at 1 03 pm 15544 Tim Keymaster Well I ve used it for the last three hours and have entered my morning tests and lunch carbs etc At this early stage I would say it s the best app for logging that I ve tried thus far It s quick to add things the interface looks nice and clear it seems to record useful stuff like 7 day deviation Interestingly it also has a clever game like points system Every time you do something like enter data you get a few points

    t make much difference either way but I know people swear by it so it s worth a punt 28 June 2013 at 3 06 pm 15419 Anonymous Cheers Folks I figure my lovely Liver is doing its thing really well as it s working out that Ive not eaten in the morning and chucking bucket loads of glucose into my system in the misapprehension that I actually have some Beta cells left that work Guess something still works eh I ve only been on B B for a few weeks so I reckon I shouldn t get too upset at weird readings I had the Novomix down pat but got ticked off at too many Hypo s and having to be totally regimented in my eating times hence the change to something allegedly more manageable Currently bunging 26u Lantus into my Gluteus not so Maximus before bed and am going from there will see if an increase is needed as I go Hilarious thing is I haven t seen my DSN since diagnosis in 2010 should have seen her face when she realised I d been missed off the system but was doing ok thank you very much on my own Me 1 Churchill Hospital Oxford 0 She did mention a pump but after looking at 3 years of record cards fiured that my control was ok and I probably wouldn t qualify Good to see you enjoying the Lakes Tim will be up there soon on two wheels hooning round Kirkstone and Whinlatter 30 June 2013 at 12 07 am 15420 Cecile Participant I administer a smidgen of short acting if I m lounging til late but unfortunately you do have to wake up to do that unless you have a trained time sensitive puff adder loaded with the required dose if you work on your peripheral neuropathy you won t feel a thing 1 August 2013 at 10 54 am 15447 Anonymous As I just changed from Lanthus to Levemir and then the pump let me offer my observations From the profile Lanthus allegedly works over 24 hours with an almost perfectly flat distribution This explanation by the manufacturer has several flaws a load of people seem to notice it works for less than 24 hours in my experience it was almost exactly that I got a bloody glucouse increase after 24 15h This means that you ll either run into too little insulin stages during the day I think typically two during the mornings and the late afternoon but Tims basal rate profile suggests different things or get low blood sugars in between Not sure that makes sense let me try a plotty thing 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Time 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0 5 0

  • Topic: Can I have some medical advice? | Shoot Up or Put Up
    I didn t need any bolus insulin any more though With a relatively constant blood glucose I continued till the early afternoon After about 18 hours I had to give up kilometer 360 225miles Apparently I lost so many minerals during the night day that I started getting cramps again and eventually my brain decided that enough was wnough 4 Interestingly the recovery was not as pronounced this time I reduced the basal rate to 70 again the following evening but already woke up with a slightly raised blood sugar the morning after Definitely better than a night time low though Good things though the DNF was not due to my diabetes which is nice but due to over excertion on the first part and not enough drinks while cycling Could have happened to anyone The highlight were without a doubt the 1000g of carbohydrates that I got to eat without injections In retrospect this obviously means that my basal rate was way too high As the sore muscles have returned to normal I m looking forward to the next event though 1 This still sounds like a good idea I don t need highs during the day before that reduce my power and send me to the loo all the time 2 Due to my lack of experience with long distance cycling I d say All of this was new for me this year and I make mistakes Stupid mistakes but mistakes 3 I normally use 4 I E in the morning 2 seemed too low 3 is a bit too much The new pump will make everything better Room for improvement though 4 I do not want to cycle up that hill and I m slowing down my group they are all much fitter than I am was what I was mainly thinking A long break at this point would probably have done and in fact I felt much better by the time my summoned sag wagon i e my wife arrived However the little village we were in at the time when I stopped wanting to go on didn t even have a restaurant pub anything It would only have been 10 more miles to the next control with a large spread of food I need to work on mental toughness it would appear 10 September 2013 at 1 55 pm 15478 Tim Keymaster Epic posts there Flo123 I enjoyed them 11 September 2013 at 8 08 pm 15480 Anonymous Not sure if this will be useful for you super cycling heroic types but I found a good website that suggests how to adjust extra carbs insulin reductions for exercise http www excarbs com Interesting basic suggestion is that you should aim to replace 1g of carbs for every kg you weigh per hour So a 70kg person exercising for 30 mins should take 35g extra carbs or compensate for that amount by reducing insulin They get more technical than that but I m looking at the easy options first Haven t tried it out yet of course 12 September 2013 at 9 23 am 15481 Tim Keymaster That looks interesting though the maths looks insanely complicated I struggle with basic arithmetic at the best of times 13 September 2013 at 8 39 am 15483 Anonymous Naha Actually it s even easier and better I or rather http www excarbs com calculate my cycling on a brevet to use 65 70g of carbs per hour I can supply this by a combination of reducing basal insulin and eating eating eating This is total genius For my post work home sprint I apparently need 80g of carbs per hour Which makes sense as it s more intensive as it s shorter This is total genius again I understand it now I think Practise to follow on monday independent of weather or the weekend if it s sunny 10 September 2013 at 9 42 am 15468 Anonymous Before this all goes completely off topic the diabetes topic that is I thought I d share my bicycle cycling experience on the two brevets I did this year Complete with insulin types used and stupid mistakes made and everything Might come in handy for someone else looking into it Possibly At least I ll be a bad example Part 1 200km Brevet Along the Altmühl River 6 Insulins Lanthus basal Novorapid bolus ICT with one Lanthus injection in the evening The trip started on a fine Saturday morning I reduced the basal injection the night before around 9pm to 75 of normal 1 The morning after I had to get up at stupid o clock to travel to the starting point A large breakfast with loads of tasty carbohydrates was consumed with slightly more Novorapid to cover for the lack of basal insulin Morning blood glucose wasn t too bad actually which surprised me with the reduced basal rate After that cycle to the train station hop onto a train and check the blood glucose levels approximately 1 5 hours after breakfast a duigusting 220mg dl 12 2mmol l was the result 2 Commence heroic correction yes that was stupid Meet up with all the other strange people who enjoy cycling until it hurts for a common breakfast at the starting line Another blood glucose test found 80mg dl 4 4mmol l Which I considered a bit low just before sports The correction for the low consisted of three pieces of cake without a bolus injection which turned out to lead to a high blood glucose during the morning which isn t that surprising in hindsight Start of the actual event was at 9 15h in a large group of cyclist in front of a backdrop of black clouds sunshine and a strong tailwind Up to the first control places to stop and get a stamp at to prove you went the right way I then had to keep correcting my way too high blood glucose I used Novorapid at 1

    know how you get on with the new sets 29 July 2013 at 9 34 am 15442 Anonymous Morning all Might as well use this post to introduce myself I ve recently June 2013 got my first pump the combo thing I did actually have a faulty next page button on the pump on my first day The remote worked as a replacement but I phoned it in and got a new one in abour 2 hours Not had any problems since and I can sadly report that it is a very sturdy piece of equipment I was hit by a car on the side of my body where the pump was stuck and while the pump itself survived with no damage the rib underneath the pump was crushed I m just bothered by the stupid please check the code matches popup when testing blood glucose As far as I know the code is only a country code since 2011 or so and the additional delay on the screen could well be removed by now 29 July 2013 at 4 16 pm 15443 Tim Keymaster Hi Flo welcome to Shoot Up That s one hell of a way to stress test a pump I think there are easier ways of doing it should you choose to Hope the rib is better 6 August 2013 at 3 42 pm 15449 Anonymous Ouch flo Mines taken a few tumbles but you win the award for commitment to the cause of product assessment Hope you got through it ok Agree on the coding originally the test strips used to be supplied with different codes a separate key that used to be inserted into the meter but now they ve all got the same code I either posted on here or Twitter about it
