Awww! Had I known anyone from the site here was on Kearsey's live feed last night, I would've pulled over to chime in. I was listening in for a good bit of it while driving along I-10 in the Coachella Valley, alongside the usual parade there of big rigs from every company under the sun..... or in this case, the moon..... agreed! Kearsey's channel is awesome!

Actually I think there were several of us! (Kearsey acknowledges everyone). She seems to have a bunch of regulars!smile.gif

Perhaps we need to arrange our own Meetup. Perhaps @ the I-80 autograph session?!? (Kearsey could sign her books there!)

Happy to. Just not sure what is needed / wanted. I consider myself a bit of an expert on the subject now!

(Actually once got into a heated debate with an RN who claimed to have a lot of experience with the FMCSA insulin mellitus process yet she was very much out of step with the then 1-year old form and protocol.

I can share anything from managing diabetes with oral meds., diet and exercise, insulin (needle/pen/pump), weight loss and getting off insulin (in my case, anyway) to the current regs, testing requirements, etc..

Perhaps it could be an actual article here?

That would be awesome. But wjat about the paperwork... didnt u say u got some kind of daily monitor.. does it record like the cpaps? and transmit to the company... or make it easier for new DOT physical?

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

CPAP:

Constant Positive Airway Pressure

CPAP is a breathing assist device which is worn over the mouth or nose. It provides nighttime relief for individuals who suffer from Sleep Apnea.

Oh... 2 types... FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitor... need to swipe arm sensor with reader or smartphone every 8 hours to get a reading.

Dexcom G6 will continuously update to a smartphone, smartwatch or standalone reader. It will wake you up if blood sugar goes low overnight or whatever. It updates automatically every 5 minutes. Never got to try it.

Data can be shared with a health care provider. Dexcom can even send alerts to 3rd-parties... great for elders and kids who have someone minding their care.

Unfortunately MCSA-5870 form still requires fingersticks 3x a day to be in compliance! (Not monitored like CPAP)... Form permits holder to get a one year certificate.

Not sure but guessing I need a new Federal Medical Certificate and Card to be free of that requirement now that I am no longer taking insulin as it was part of my approval. That is if I could back and find someone to drive for!
