Hey there, I'm with you on the Dexcom! I was stoked to find this site... great way to connect and stay in touch with the clan of solid feedback on what is new today. I have had type 1 for about 34 years. And one thing I'm realizing after long observation is most of us have great attitudes and know how to persevere well and succeed. I look forward to staying in touch and connecting with more quality people. I surf, and am thinking about getting into biking ... an old friend is now addicted and is saying I got to step in. so maybe I'll see your out there... Ethan (CA)

Please share!

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on BigBlueTest.org
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)

Ate a Pb and J 2 hours before the 3rd lap gave 2 units but it did not get into my system till I started peddling.
Great race lots of weirdness.

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
