As one of the oldest (91) insulin-dependent since 1977,welcome, and to start you off on the right foot, my advice is 1.get yourself a good diabetic specialist, 2.wear a MEDIC-ALERT identification,it can SPEAK for you when you cannot speak for yourself, 3. have a DIABETIC BUDDY,someone you are in contact DAILY, they,too,can save your LIFE., a new bit of info, that is very imoportant,LISTEN to your body, it tells you when to sleep, when to exercize, when its time to have a snack, etc. You will learn,that the diabetic who knows most about their diabetes will live the LONGEST. If you are in TORONTO, on November 5 2008, and attend CDA health fair at ONTARIO SCIENCE CENTRE, I wll be a greeter from 4.30 pm to 9 pm, you will see an 91 year,young, geezer with a BLUE ROSE, and a button that says DONT BOTHER ME, I CANT COPE, This will give us an opportunity to meet as fellow members of TuDiabetes,and maybe set up a branch here.
