Hello, is there anyone currently on the forum who has type 1 diabetes (or someone in their family) who can fill me in on what kind of care I can expect? I have already seen from my research that I need to be careful about what kind of health care plan we get, but I have no concept of what level of service to expect.Currently, in Australia, I am a patient at a dedicated Centre for Diabetes that is a 2 floor building with a gym (with biokineticists on hand trained to work with diabetics), a pharmacy/ food store, insulin pump consultants, free medication, free carb counting classes, I couldn't even get this level of care in the US under the best health plan available.Fingers crossed that in Switzerland similar standards are available?Also, how is eating out as a carb counting diabetic and treatment of people using a glucometer or doing injections in public?Thanks in advance!Patrick

Hi guys, I've been searching the internet including this forum for recommendations for cheap waxing services in Zurich but so far I haven't found any. Most people recommend Strip or some other expensive studios but I am not looking for such. Their prices are ridiculously high for procedures which last no more than 10 minutes and I cannot believe that there are no normal places here at all. Please, if someone has had waxing at affordable price here, leave their coordinates here. Preferably a phone number, not only an address. Thanks!

seem to have something of a recurring problem with ear infections. I seem more prone to them when I'm in Switzerland, but am imagining that that's down to climate here.I have quite recently learned that you're apparently not meant to use ear-buds to clean out your ears of any wax. This is something that I am in the habit of doing.... I mean if it's that problematic then why are they called 'ear-buds'... ...I've been looking into it further, and was surprised to read that (apparently) many infections self-resolve after a few days. I'm rather torn between such a 'wait and see' approach, and the alternative of going to my doctor and him almost certainly putting me on antibiotics. I have the tube of topical cream I was prescribed last time (Zaricort), but the ear canal is so swollen I can't get an ear-bud in to apply it! I have been treating it with H2O2 (lie on side, fill ear-canal with peroxide/3%, leave for 20 minutes, repeat for 5 days) but at this point in time can't tell if that is resolving anything.Does anyone else else here have experience with this problem? Since I haven't used the swimming pool for a week or so, I am thinking that this has been caused by getting water in my ears when simply showering!Does anyone have any suggestions, or is it off to the doc and antibiotics for me?
