I just discovered that in Australia they have a fantastic system where food is labelled according to its glycemic index!
Check out this web link of the "Glycemic index foundation"
it would make life so much easier for us diabetics if they did this labeling in all countries.
How can we make this happen ?

Network Engineer anyone?
Been doing the Cisco and Microsoft thing for about 17 years. To this day, I am the only Type 1, female, tattooed geek that I know. Any others? :)

Happy to find this group :) I'm a wanna be geek with good skills, still on the learning path, but I do ok. Some days are low and work doesn't go as planned, other days are high gear and I can get my small goals done. I do designing, build a few websites, teach media & SEO classes, all while trying to balance this T2 condition.
Hope I can be of assistance or at least add some "funnies" to the group. Be Blessed.

How can I upload results from my OneTouch VerioIQ to a mac computer? OneTouch says I can't - which rather steams me.

I would love to be a geek, but my geekship is weak! I mean I have a hazy understanding as a user, but have lived for ten years with only my old Accu Chek sensor for company. I'm upgrading from a Samsung Galaxy to a Samsung Nexus with Android4. I would really like to run apps for my T2. It is quite wild at times.I also have serious additional complications. Never seen an endo, Didn't know they existed till I joined here a couple of weeks ago! My State health doctor is pretty layed back(Lazy). If I can accumulate enough data easily I will go to my local Area Health Authority directly with a copy of my right of entitlement to medical help. It will takes me weeks to read all the comments and answers here. I don't have a phone line at home (Phone Company wont give me one),so Internet is a luxury. can someone give me a summery of apps, plug in and any links. Hard ware I have to buy except strips,pins etc! Nice to see jrt here.

Congrats on the pump! It does have a learning curve - just go with it, and post if you have any questions. The data from my Ping is fantastic, enjoy!

Hi to all in the group. Have my little daughter finally pumping, dx'd just over a year ago. Wading through all the data coming from her Medtronic Veo & Enlite CGM and trying to find the patterns.
I feel at home here with all the other geeks! I've been programming/teaching programming for a long time so happy to help where I can and learn from the group where I can't.
