""...IF YOU HAD EATEN THE GREEN BEANS FOR LUNCH, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE GONE LOW..." said one of the nurses with the crash cart team when they called "Code Blue" on me, not because somebody put the short acting insulin in the IV bag…"
"How do you like your eggs??? Different tastes. Multiple brand names, which one(s) do you like...
My wife and kids love the 8th Continent Chocolate. Most of the Unsweetened Vanilla(s) brands are much better tasting, less beany etc. than their…"
"Fine points. Generic meters/strips last time I checked were NOT the same in terms of clinical accuracy. Close enough maybe but not as good as the brand names (supposedly)?
What valid reason insurance companies have for requiring an entirely new…"
"Is your maid of honor intimately familiar with your diabetes? Id give her a small bottle of soda instead of the tabs, or better yet a tube of the icing whether specifically for diabetes or your basic cake icing.

"Thank you for making the distinction. Not sure I agree, but appreciate your points.
Lows are cause by excess insulin, somewhere in the equation. Whether absorbed too rapidly, too little food to make energy required, excess exertion, somewhere its…"
"ok, a different perspective, fair enough.
Never had co workers remind you of the incident(s), hopefully well meaning but excessively concerned about your health? I dont ask them about their hearth attacks, their thrush, their gum disease ever, why…"
