How I Keep My Dexcom on SO LONG video and a Type Tank Review

Add to the already long list – glucose gels, DEXCOM monitor and more. Where is a girl supposed to put everything? Enter a company…See More

"I am totally new at this. I have been running for years and now all of a sudden have to think of GI levels. I know this may be a dumb question but this monitor that you show. What is it how does it work and were do you get one. I run between 6-12…"

"I am never sore. Can wear up to 3 weeks. I reinforce the tape... which is not so attractive... but wear mine on the inner upper arm... actually on the front of my shoulder. I sleep on my side...so this works really well."

It's OK, I didn't until now either, don't feel bad.

It's funny how you start paying attention to things when you are afflicted by them.

That may sound shallow, but it's the…

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend LP...
Trinidad AND Tobago....so far away, but it feels like you're right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 28, the other 26), a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself!
hugs....linda
