Many thanks for your kind greeting! I always say it is easy fo manage diabetes when you are retired. It was a lot tougher when I was an honest working man. One of my biggest helpers was the development of insulins Lente and Novo Lente by Novo Nordisk -- I think in the early 1950s. It allowed me to lead a rich and full life, but in retrospect I did not have good control back then -- my A1cs were well above 7.5 or even 8. With the new tools we have been given (better insulins, the development of the basal and bolus regimens, and for me, most of all CGM technology), the challenges of the past seem formidable, but now I can manage fairly easily.
Welcome to Tudiabetes! I have traveled fairly extensively in your native continent, but, alas, never made it to Peru. I wish I could correspond with you in your native tongue, but if I could you would have to reciprocate and write to me in Norwegian. Perhaps we will stick with English?
Your amigo

Hello Gustavo: :o)

No that little One is not my Granddaughter. She is my Sister's 3rd Grandchild. I do enjoy her though. My Son and his Wife are Foster Parents and do not have any Children of their own yet. My Daughter is dating but is not interested in Marriage yet. So I do not have any Grandchildren so far. So whatever Children I come in contact with I tend to spoil a bit. I will save your Congrats for when I do have GrandKids. ;-) Thank you!

Do you have Grandchildren? Congratulations for having Diabetes that many years. How do you feel and how is your health? What was your last A1c?
I hope that you are doing Well. It is Nice to have you here. Welcome!
