Hi: As many of you know, I write a lot of blogs on misdiagnosis of adult-onset Type 1 diabetes (adults with new-onset T1D who are misdiagnosed as having Type 2 diabetes, based on age not etiology).…Continue

In June I got my prescribed 10 test strips per day which equals 300/month.

I like to dance extensively at these showz--well, maybe some would say 'spastically twitch'. All I can say after last night is: WOW! Just...WOW! Who would have thought that…Continue
