    I understand delays I have them for different reasons.

    I do very much appreciate your responses whenever they come.

    My first endocrinologist was a researcher and the only reason he took me on as a patient is because my son was a prior patient. That doctor now works for Novo Nordisk. he was excellent at what he did and I did do some very detailed logs for him at the very beginning prior to going on the pump. He was quite passionate about his work. All my other endocrinologist since then have paled in comparison.

    I think my learning style is what hampers me with posting. I really thrive on examples and hand detailed explanations. Therefore, I can understand how Q and A’s in da forum setting could be a problem.

    Thank you so very much!

    I had wondered about the pump. I took a pump vacation for about 3 years and started back up not quite 2 years ago. I have been feeling recently that the pump is actually getting in the way of maintaining my blood sugars appropriately. I also added a Dexcom CGM.

    I hope you can forgive me but I have so many questions for you.

    Do you use a CGM?
    Do you use a pen or just syringe and vial?
    Is there a specific log that you would recommend?
    I was told to wait 20 minutes before bolusing if my blood sugar was over a certain amount so that the insulin and food peaked at the same time. Is that right? Or, is there a different formula based on the individual and how different foods affect their blood sugars.

    Again, thank you so much. I am not much of a mathematical or science whiz so, I definitely need some remediation but, once I get it I'm good to go. I know you're very busy and I totally understand that so I would like to thank you in advance for any of the questions that you could answer for me.

    Thank you, I really appreciate that.  Also, I haven't had a chance to fully check out the website so, I was wondering if you could direct me to recipes that correspond with the Starch-Smartest choices?

    Thank you both.  I will most likely sign up for the consultation.  And thank you for the info regarding Ken Thomas.  I first read about Ken on Dr. McDougall's site 3 years ago but, didn't know how to contact him.  I actually found your website by doing a search for Ken Thomas.  I've already read two of his blogs. I will follow the rest.  Thanks again.

    I am a T1 Diabetic.  I started following Dr. McDougall's program about 3 years ago.  I've never been to his residential program (although I would like to).

    Lately, I've not been as strict with the diet.  I know this will sound very counter-intuitive but, my blood sugars have been so high for such a long time that I kind of gave up when we eat out.  I always cook well at home.  I eat steel-cut oats every morning for breakfast w/berries and an apple.  Before when my blood sugars were elevated I always knew something was wrong physically. With the exception of 2 visits to the doctor this year, I've been told there is nothing wrong.

    I finally saw a new endo who seems to be proactive but, she changed my pump settings and then told me to get off my high carb diet.  It kind of threw me into a tailspin and quite frankly I was afraid to eat much of anything.  My sugars still remained somewhat high even after the adjustments.  I noticed that if I stick to eating just fruit in the morning and keeping my starchy carbs and fruit separate it seems to stay in range (except for this morning).  

    I'm kind of at my wit's end.  Does anyone know of a Dr in the East or North Dallas area who agrees with a starch-based diet?  @kenscircus, I would love to know how you've managed to manage your blood sugars so masterfully.
