Heat wave and Low sugars

The heat wave from this past weekend had all of us scrambling to stay indoors but crazy thing happened, both on sat and sun, I had 2 episodes of low sugars 67 on sat and 65 on sun, they both happened at about 2 am though. Bear in mind that I am a T2 even though am on Insulin so lows are very rare for me and other than the heat, nothing else happened out of the ordinary. I have been researching, looking for a link between the two but the answers I come up with are all general at best ie heat…See More

Prelude to the Tour de Cure- A few questions on fund raising etiquette

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 6:19am 5 Comments

Last week I attended the Northeast Ohio tour de cure launch party for the tour which will be on June 13 this year.

It is my first time participating on the tour as a Red Rider, mostly I have always just put my contribution in the mail but more and more I find myself wanting and have made the decision to be more involved.

So here I was at the launch party with a few goals to introduce myself to the local ADA community and volunteers and also to find a team I could join this… Continue

My diabetes horror story

Posted on April 15, 2010 at 7:00am 0 Comments

I hate writing about diabetes horror stories mine included, not because its saddening but because it puts me in a very judgmental mood and I do not believe fear is a good motivator for any aspect of life.

The recent Oprah diabetes special comes to mind. While she used the typical fear factor to show how devastating poor diabetes management principles can be. That was one of the many wrong things with that episode which was meant to galvanize diabetics and pre-diabetics into action but… Continue

My kids are sabotaging my diet plan

Posted on April 12, 2010 at 9:16am 2 Comments

My kids are the greatest things in the world and I love them to death but the little rascals are doing major damage to my diabetic diet plan and I am beginning to think it is by design.

" Do you know that there are kids in Africa starving right now coz they don't have enough to eat ?" I said and…

We were chatting the other day on the #dmsa tweetchat. I just wanted to know if you had gone by my website. I haven't update the site in a while since I have been plagued with some health issues that I am trying to resolve. From my experience I will be putting up a section on how to deal with hospitals soon.

Yeah I am gutted that we are out but what can we do Germany played well man they did well picking all such young talented team looks like they going to be wanted left right and centre by every club.
Still rooting for Ghana seeing as England have come back to us it would be great to see an African team lift the cup in an African country.
