Welcome home TeeBee....fellow Canadian!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions and take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well.
Hope you find the support and information you came looking for. Here are a few useful links to get you on your way:
I wanted to make you aware of the TuAnalyze application we've launched on TuDiabetes, which is now mapping averages of A1c values in the US and Canada...

Actually, once we get more people in Canada to participate in the project, provinces there will begin to light up.
Here's how you can enter your A1c on TuAnalyze:
-Click on this link:
-You will be taken to your My Apps page.
-Give it a few seconds.
-Click on the button and follow the rest of the instructions on the screen.
If you click on "About Us" on the top banner, you will find the explanation of the founding of TuDiabetes and the name
Take care....and keep in touch!
