Diabetes Unconference Scholarships Now Available

Diabetes UnConference Scholarships Now Available Earlier in the year, we wrote about the upcoming Diabetes UnConference , a peer-to-peer support conference that allows participants to create and moderate the agenda, allowing for a wide variety of topics and viewpoints that might never be covered in a traditional conference. For those who are interested in attending the event, taking place from March 1315, 2015 at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, but unable to afford the associated expenses, there are now a number of scholarships available. The Medicare Recipient Scholarship (available to people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes who are on Medicare), Type 1 Scholarship, and Type 2 Scholarship are available to people in the continental United States and cover air travel to and from Las Vegas, the Diabetes UnConference registration fee, and a two-night stay at The Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The two available room scholarships are available to those already registered for the event and staying for the entire conference and cover a two-night stay the The Flamingo Las Vegas. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2014. For more information, and to submit an application, visit Continue reading >>

    metformin during night?

    i'm currently having to take metformin
    1000mg twice a day with meals
    i'm having reasonable control except overnight
    when I have to urinate hourly
    I was wondering if it was safe to take 500 mg
    somewhere in the night and see if I don't have to
    urinate so much
    if the dose will lower my levels any
    has anyone tried this?

    No one has answered yet so I'll give it a try.
    Metformin, no matter when it's taken, is only built up in the bloodstream. It does not have immediate effect on BG like other drugs or insulin. It doesn't work that way. It works in the liver to reduce the amount of glycogen it stores, thereby, reducing the amount of glucose it is able to secrete back into the blood stream at a later time.

    somewhere in the night and see if I don't have to
    urinate so much You mention urinating at night. Is this because your blood sugar is high - say, above 200 most of the time? Well, this would cause urinating. But metformin would have absolutely no effect on this issue because, as I wrote above, it does not work like insulin to immediately (or even in an hour or two) lower blood sugar. If you BG is high, then your first priority is to get it lowered to below 140. The frequent urination will subside.
    To address your statement of not have as good control overnight. As far as blood sugar levels go, it is natural for your BG to rise in the early hours of the morning. It is the way your body goes about waking you up. And it is the liver that provides the glucose to raise your BG. This is called dawn phenomenon (DP). Since we diabetics don't have an accompanying insulin response, BG continues to rise.
    Metformin does help with DP. But if you are having high morning numbers, then it may be because you ate too many carbs the evening before.
    DP is discussed at length on this forum. If you do a search for "dawn phenomenon" you'll find many recent and past threads on this subject.

Attorney Steps Up With Diabetes Scholarship

Attorney Steps Up with Diabetes Scholarship Written by Amy Tenderich on January 25, 2013 These days, it seems like scholarships, internships and diabetes-focused jobs and careers are much more visible than they used to be for young adults living with diabetes. A news story that caught our eye recently involved a Southern attorney and fellow type 1, Byron David, who's stepping up to help the younger generations of PWDs (people with diabetes) further their education. We're grateful to have PWDs "paying it forward" like this, working with existing D-scholarship orgs to open opportunities to young people already grappling with the burdens of diabetes. Our correspondent Mike Lawson stepped up to learn more: When he was a law school student at the University of South Carolina, Byron David started noticing that he had a thirst that couldn't be quenched. He found himself going to the bathroom frequently. And I think most of you can predict where this story is going... Byron went to the school's infirmary where his blood sugar clocked in at 540 mgdL. And so at age 25 when he was halfway through law school, a type 1 diagnosis came into his life. At the time, he saw the diagnosis as a threat Continue reading >>

    Husband is Type 2, I can't seem to get Pregnant

    I have heard multiple times that being a diabetic can effect a man's reproductive system. Is this true? If so, what are the effects? We have been trying for quite some time now and still nothing. I have a child from a previous relationship and after talking to my Dr. she doesn't think it is me. I have searched the internet and I can't really find that much info. Does anyone know if we are possibly dealing with a complication from the diabetes and if so what can we do? Any good web sites? Books? Anything?
    Thanks in advance,

    I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble conceiving. My husband and I conceived our first with absolutely no effort, but for our second, we tried for a year and a half, through one miscarriage, through me becoming diabetic and then finding out my cholesterol was really high. I finally decided we should just give up and I should start taking the cholesterol meds.
    Then I got pregnant!
    It was my body that wasn't working though, my husband's was working fine.
    How long have you been trying? Make him switch to boxers if he hasn't already.
    I know many might think it's silly, but another thing that could have been the magic turn I needed was an african fertility goddess. It is a little wooden statue that african women purportedly rub on their bellies to help them get PG. you can probably get one on ebay.
    Maybe you don't believe in that kind of thing, or perhaps you have another strong faith, but it could just be a little extra something to focus your hope and faith on if nothing else works. My mom lent me hers the month beofre I conceived.
