Hey, thanks for the welcome!
@Chris, honey stout sounds good. I’ve brewed for 20 years now, and mainly brew for others these days. A recent batch was inspired by Young’s double chocolate stout - that one was particularly well received. As far as hunting goes, I’ve not learned how to use a bow - too little time. Maybe in 20 years or so!
The use of R could be a whole thread for me. Briefly summarized: I stumbled onto it by accident, during a hospitalization (ER doc gave me that instead of Humalog). It is especially good for low carb meals. I had a lot of post meal mild hypos over the years, due to Humalog acting too fast for low carb meals. Dr. Bernstein recommends its use for his low carb methods, and it all makes sense to me in hindsight (read most of his book at diagnosis, but didn’t fully implement his methods by the book…). Also, R can be purchased OTC at walmart for $25, which is much better than Humalog (even purchased in Canada, Humalog is about $50/vial).
@T1Allison - thanks!
docslotnick: I did switch myself to Lantus 2x daily,back when, and now continue that approach with Levemir 2x daily. That is really useful for Levemir, which doesn’t really last 24 hours, especially at relatively low dosage (I’m at about 0.16 U/KG total daily basal). The same is true with Lantus - if memory serves, they used relatively high dosage to achieve appearance of 24 hours activity (like 0.3 or 0.4 Units/KG or even higher).
Aaron: Wow. I often wonder how much of a struggle it’d be with a young child with T1D. I’ve got 4 kids, ranging from 17YO to 10YO, but none so far have inherited it.
