    I have an illestomy for my crohns disease and when this was done in December of 2003 they found I have diabetes also. Now I am on Lantus and Novalog for diabetes and am on some high cholesterol and thyroid meds. Just wonder with these problems if there should be any concern with diving. I started back August 2006 diving and so far have made several dives air only with no problems. Last diving before this was in 2000.

    Been using Lantus and Novalog for about 2 1/2 yrs. No problems so far, just keep track of your numbers.

    Ok will do. I figure diving burns up some blood sugar so was wondering. My uncle lives in Royal Palm Beach!
