Hi Tara! Welcome! :)

I get my HDL done along with my other blood tests at the lab. Your Endocrinologist(Endo) will give you the requisition and you give it to the Receptionist at the lab. Your GP can also give you a requisition for the test with other blood works.

I was always told to fast for the cholesterol test but recently heard that fasting wasn't necessary. I don't know if that is true or not. Look on the paper to see if your Endo wrote fasting or not.

A Shout out to Type One Women Planning Pregnancy

Hello fellow Canucks!

Just wondering if anyone out there is planning a pregnancy with type one diabetes?

I'd love to hear from you and to learn of your journey!

I'm planning my second pregnancy now too and am looking to share experiences with other type one's!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Meliss Shannon

I just wanted to share. I cooked the Curried Beef and Sweet Potatoes from the www.diabetesgps.ca website and I really enjoyed it! Check it out! Yummy!

Received my Dexcom last week and will start using the 1st of the New Year, does anyone presently using the Dexcom insert their sensors direct to skin or through a IV300 or Tegaderm bandage?

Well, just received my Dexcom G4 package, thought I'd wait until the New Year to start with it, make it part of a New Year's resolution to better take care of my self for retirement. Turning 65 in 2014!
