What main dish do you consistently cover the best? Us- A bowl of chili.

Son boluses full carbs of the chili then extends another 30% over 2 hrs. It always seem to turn out good. Today he had it as after school snack and flatlined in the 80s until dinner.Continue

Awareness Video discussing Type 1

Haven't been active on TuD in over a year, I miss the community, but life has been too busy this year. I was hoping you guys might be able to help me out. I would like to have a short, type 1, awareness video to show in a class I have to do a presentation for. If it had a child in it, it would be great. I have seen some very touching ones so if you have the time, give me a link to your favorite. Thanks loads. Nathan, a senior now, is doing great if any remember him. :)Emily.See More

Emily B replied to Siri's discussion 'Do you tape over the sensor?' in the group Continuous Glucose Monitor Users
"We don't tape over the entire sensor either. Use the tape at about 8 days into it, just to keep the curled up edges down. It buys my son another 6 days or so. Thought once about taping over it when he went swimming in the ocean last summer, but…"

"Hey that looks like a great armband, where can I find one for my t1teen. We recently upgraded to the G4, but as slim as it is, it still bounces around on his waist while working out. Burpees - a whole lot of fun!"

Hi there, how are you doing? Just wanted to say hi to all my friends on TUD. Logging in after a long time :)

How is your son doing Emily?

Miss you girl!!!

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
