Merry Christmas Robert!

Hi Robert,
There was an issue with Internet Explorer that was causing the survey to display the way you describe. I was told it was fixed. Would you mind trying it again?

I'm here.

I'm on Avandia for diabetes, plus a handful of other pills for other reasons.

I've never been on Twitter.

It looks like time to upload another batch of the diabetes-related links I've found, including those which suggest that diets high in fructose are a likely cause of type 2.

C'mon over to Diabetes Plus...and join the rabble Robert!
We have a camp for children with diabetes, operated under the umbrella of The Canadian Diabetes Association, in OUR Huntsville, about 3 to 4 hours north of here (Kitchener, southwestern Ontario).

Are you on Twitter? It's part of the Big Blue Test. TuDiabetes is one of the sponsors of it. I'll try and find a link to it, but if you search around the site here, you can find something about, I'm sure.

And definitely keep me posted on the research thing!

Hi Robert. I wanted to introduce myself for several reasons. First of all, I'm a diabetic living in Huntsville. Secondly, I work for the Huntsville Times, and I'm trying to work on a story about World Diabetes Day on Nov. 14. TuDiabetes is a sponsor of the Big Blue Test. I was wondering if A) you were aware of it and planning to participate, and B) if you are, would you be willing to talk to me about it for a story in the paper? I'd love to talk with you about it if so. You can respond on this Web site or via e-mail if you'd like. Thanks so much!

Hi, and thanks for the note.

Fortunately, I was too young to have the Agent Orange experience. For what it is worth, Vietnam Veterans who can document being 'in country' and who have Type II are presumed to have a service connected disability. This is a rare state, as most usually the onus is on the veteran to demonstrate causality between their military service and any disability they are claiming. A detailed discussion can be found at while the official word can be found at

If you know of anybody who might be impacted, please help me to spread the word and of course to thank these brave men and women for their service.

Thanks for all of the info. I've gone through some of it already. What kind of oral meds are you on? I take 3, metformin, avandia, and glucotrol xl. I also take 8 other meds that treat the symptoms of all of my other diseases. It's just so much to put in my body and sometimes I'd like to stop taking all of it.
At 7:47am on April 7, 2009, Joni said…
no, we don't have a website. we're a pretty small group.
I have another question though. I haven't read all of the info about metformin and I've been taking it for about 8-9 years. I guess I just take my meds and question a lot of it, although I did hear about the avandia warning. Could you enlighten me about the metformin? thanks, joni

Hi Robert,
Sure, that would be great. I'm always in the mood for any info I can get on the subject. joni
