Errie,
We need your help...

Please share this post here on TuDiabetes and on your Facebook and tag 20 close friends on it. We need your support to reach 20,000 entries for the Big Blue Test!

Please do Big Blue Test every day until November 14 (World Diabetes Day). For each entry, the Diabetes Hands Foundation (that's the nonprofit behind TuDiabetes) receives a $5 donation from Roche Diabetes Care, to help people with diabetes in need.

You can enter your exercise numbers on the web site (www.BigBlueTest.org) or using the iPhone app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/big-blue-test/id570887902?mt=8&uo=4

Thanks for your help!!

Welcome to the family!! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of what you will learn is that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and vent to, if needed.
