"Hi JimS, good to chat with ya again. When I finally decided to be a player in this game I did a BUNCH of looking around. Somewhere I've got a link to a doctor, in fact I think he's an OD rather than an MD, in Ohio, Kentucky, not sure, but…"

"Hi CJ D2 -
First off - I have NO medical credentials, just a finger sticker who HAS gotten my glucose level under control, so all I can do is tell you what I experienced. Like most diabetes related questions, the answer is "it depends".…"
"Tee Hee Hee! Hi JimS -
My problem is that the ability to spell "diabetes" is the peak of my qualifications. A lot of my perspective is based on the thought that common sense and personal responsibility address a percentage of the problems…"
"Hi Natalie - I agree with your statement of the equation. Yes, genetics is a piece, but as I've browsed these forums I see a lot of folks who are dealing with numerous "health challenges" in addition to diabetes.

The PRIMARY person in my life who has diabetes has
Type 2 diabetes
How do you hope to benefit from TuDiabetes?
I'm happy to say that in the past year and a half I've gotten my glucose level under control. That process has made my level of ignorance embarrasingly visible and as a result I'm paying attention and learning.

The program runs on Windows and is available at no cost. Its focus is Type-2 Diabetes, as I understand it, but input from my Diabetes support team has resulted in adding functionality they asked for that I don't use.
