(Please only one reply per statement. Just reply only to the most recent post. Thanks!)

The next person got diabetes before the age of 21.

The next person is using a insulin pump...
Yep, I have been pumping for about 12 years! Just set up CGM about a month ago.

The next person knows how to bolus for a beer!

The next person is new to this website :)
True. The next person has passed through Security at an airport with all their medical supplies
the next poster has an A1c of 7 or less. (Very few diabetics, statistically, but I'd be curious about Tudiabetes members.)
True!! 6.7 yay

The next poster uses a One Touch Ultra II glucose meter.
False, although he has one. He has to use the One Touch Ultra in order to calibrate his Dexcom.

The next poster licks the blood droplet left over after a fingerstick.
True! Saliva = nature's ointment.

The next person thinks insulin smells horrible.
True! Don't we all.

The next person favors one finger to check his/her blood sugar.
false! she has 3 favorite fingers to check on her blood sugar: Index, Middle and Ring.

The next person favors to have chocolate/hard candies to correct his/her lows.
False! I use Glucose tabs & Joses Soda. Chocolate is too slow for me.

The next person changes the needle after each fingerstick.
Never...I think I go for months before changing the lancet!

The next person loves U2 as much as me:)
