Hi Nurse NZ - I'm not on the west coast - but went down there over the summer. What part of the Coast are you at?

HI EVERYONE, many of you may have seen the todays release by PHARMAC proposing the funding of only one BG test strip in NZ. I personal thinks its outrages and when i read the proposal today (pharmac.govt.nz) i felt physically sick and honestly shed a couple of tears. The thing is, i dont care which machine's strips they want to fund, the fact is we no longer have a choice.... this is a consultation period and they are expecting feedback (join on FB - stop pharmac taking away the choices of people with diabetes). Im all for saving money but we PWD never chose to get diabetes and the simple little things like 'which machine i use' i hold very dear to life.... sad hey!

Hi All, I've just completed a 5 day D.A.F.N.E ( Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating ) Course run by the ADHB Diabetes Clinic. see http://www.dafne.uk.com/ for more info. I have always had pretty good control ( last HbA1C 6% ) since diagnosis but this course has really changed the way I'll be managing my diabetes in future. If anyone gets the chance go on a DAFNE course I fully recommend it.

Just picked up my Accu-Chek Performa Nano.

And it all goes in my wallet.

She's tiny.

All I can say isn't fun so we might as well make it as easy as possible by having coolest and smallest gadgets to do the job with.
