    Nice post! I think I am in the Gary Scheiner camp though. Pretty active, I don’t need to lose weight, and I pee plenty as it is!

    It’s so interesting to see what is advancing. Thank you for keeping us all up to date on what is currently in research. It’s wonderful to keep up on all this, my son (T1) is only 22 months, but staying abreast of these scientific developments should help my son in the future. Keep up the good work, and wonderful reporting!

    Well, I am going to try the Invokana in a four month trial beginning the end of August 2014. Not sure if I will be able to share the details on my blog, but if I can, I will. Thanks for the great reports!

    I was picked for the trail because my endo also has a research division and I am a very compliant study subject. I start the actual drug this morning. I’ll either get a placebo, 100mg or 300 mg. we won’t know until we see my BG readings. I reduce my basal rate 10 percent just before taking the drug. Never done a medication trial, so kinda nervous about it.

    I am t1d and have been using invokana for about a month. I disagree with Gary’s view on this drug and low blood sugars. I have found less problems with lows and much more stable blood sugars. The frequent urination seems to lessen with better control or perhaps once the body gets used to the invokana. Prior to invokana i was having trouble with insulin resistant and was managing diabetes by eating low carb. Now i am able to tolerate carbs again! I have energy again…I am still on the 100mg my doc wants to take it slow, i hope to start 300mg after my next dr visit.
