Juan , I just happened to come by your page again (because I wasn't sure if I had welcomed you!), and I must tell you that if you leave a comment on your own page, I am not likely to see it. You must click on the words "comment back" under my comment to you. that will take you to my page, where I am sure to see the nice words you have written!

and our wonderful founder, Manny Hernandez, has also created a sister website, estudiabetes, for Spanish speakers, if you'd like to check it out. there is a link to it on the right hand side =====>

Hi, thank you. My wife has been diagnostic diabetes since she was 12, now she is 38 and she is doing well, with some problems about diabetes, but i think the "normal". We are mexicans, and we are living since 1 year and half in Montreal. I find this community excellent, and i am sure that we could find come answers that the doctor and the companies never will tell you, thanks for the welcome and we will keep in touch.
