I went to my quarterly endo visit yesterday. When George came into the room he said "Big brother is watching." I did not know what he was talking about until he showed me a form and inquiry from the Feds listing all of my prescriptions and where I…Continue
I just wanted to say thanks to this community for helping turn my diabetes life around.Almost a year ago, I was way out of control, a1c >11, popping metformin but otherwise ignoring my diabetes. I was depressed, and in addition to other issues,…Continue
several months ago I had triple bypass surgery and have noticed since then that I can no longer "feel" when my blood sugar is getting too low. I am not sure if this is my blood sugar dropping too fast for me to recognize the symptoms, or if I no…Continue

My father passed away from a stroke, my aunt from kidney failure, and my cousin from complications of a staph infection, if I remember correctly. The point of this is to…Continue
This past January I spent 18 days in Bangalore, India, along with my husband who joined me, helping at a diabetes clinic for the poor. It all came about because I met an amazing young woman in our community, Erin Little. Erin is living in a small, patient room in the clinic and working tirelessly to get access to affordable health care to India's poor. India has the second highest growth of diabetes in the world and 70% of their population live in villages far from any doctor or…Continue
I know I keep saying this but I really plan on getting this diabetes under "Real" control... looking at my recent summary I still have a bunch of work to do!
Next one will be a big improvement, I have a Dr. appt in a few days, and I'm also going to try to start self adjusting. Got a…Continue
