"NGOs are Non-governmental organizations; I hear it more frequently in other countries.

"I had a friend who tended to say she had "low blood sugar" when she was hungry as some people do and I pretty much ignored it. Then one day I was in Costa Rica with her and her husband, me the Type 1 and her husband the Type 2. We had…"
"Your blood sugar is doing what most of us work hard altering insulin doses to do - staying stable (and at a perfect level) between when you go to bed and when you wake up. Your body still does it for you, be grateful!"
"I think in the early days you do a lot of testing to find out how different foods affect you. No, I don't think time of day matters. Some of us just have different peaks, most commonly from about 1.5 to 2 hours. I think mine is a tad less than…"
