New syringe design

So I normally FIFO my supplies, but tonight I was just too lazy to run down stairs for a new box and grabbed the spare pod they shipped this week to replace a bum one. I've been having the irritating, but inconsequential issue of that little black gasket at the top of the plunger not staying tight and popping off the first time I pull on the plunger for the last few months. (Not sure if I'm the only one with that issue...)Anyway, I pull out the new pod and low and behold there is no black…See More

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
