"You cannot! The only glucose meter capable of working with a mac is the Bayer Contour USB. I dropped One Touch when I switched to a ma earlier this year. You might find someone who has written software, I tried, and nothing worked."

I am a polio survivor (1944). I had a quintuple bypass in 1984, and a triple bypass in 2002. I had back surgery in 2003.

And in 2008, I lost my wife of 41 1/2 years (after 17 abdominal surgeries in a 10 year period, and a couple of abdominal blockages).

I moved from Georgia to Maryland in 2010, because I have 2 gorgeous granddaughters living there!

A little history

Posted on August 3, 2012 at 9:39am 5 Comments

In 1984 I had a quintuple bypass, and had no issues at all until I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 1996. was given glyburide, and it was ok for years, in 2004 added metformin which only made it worse, and in January 2005 started Lantus. In 2007, Byetta was added.In 2011 my Lantus was lowered and Novalog was added. My last 2 A1C's were 6.2 and 5.8.

Oops, forgot to mention the triple bypass in 2002, which theoretically was caused by Vioxx, given for a bad back. A settlement fro Merck…

The sun set
And rise
Never ever
Doing her full time job
Twenty four hour a day
Yes my dear
Twenty four hour a day
Because when she finishes here
She will be somewhere
To rise to set
Never uttering
A complaint!!!!
