"Studies have shown that the more you test your BG, the better control you will have. When I have a doctor complaining about the testing strips, I show them a standard BG testing form and walk them through it. Here is an example: OK I am supposed to…"

"I think it's possible , as I manage on 200 a month as well. Mostly because I had to struggle to get to 200 and I don't think I can really easily get more than that  . I'd like to have more but some days I do even test less than I…"

"I personally don't know how you manage to get such a good A1c with no (or few) hypos on just 200 strips a month. I use about 300 per month, pump and still have a large number of visits below 68. You're a marvel! For some reason lots of…"

"Hey A1C buddy! I would say that I'm glad my endo doesn't do this to me, my endo is a type 1 himself and gets how the disease works on a personal level though. He's never been like shocked by my a1c he's proud of me because I can…"

Now I have to feel guilty for GOOD control?!

I recently came back from my quarterly check up at my endocrinologists. I should be very happy. He checks my A1c and it is 5.7. He asks me how many significant hypos I recently had and I reply "zero". He looks at me slightly confused, then goes on to mumble "..that is quite unusual..!" I smile and say:" Thank you!" Then I try a joke: "Well maybe I m not really a diabetic.." My attempt backfires. For a moment I can see him thinking, then he looks at the computer. "I can see we measured your…See More

Hi Julez,

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Julez,
We need your help...

Please share this post here on TuDiabetes and on your Facebook and tag 20 close friends on it. We need your support to reach 20,000 entries for the Big Blue Test!

Please do Big Blue Test every day until November 14 (World Diabetes Day). For each entry, the Diabetes Hands Foundation (that's the nonprofit behind TuDiabetes) receives a $5 donation from Roche Diabetes Care, to help people with diabetes in need.

You can enter your exercise numbers on the web site (www.BigBlueTest.org) or using the iPhone app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/big-blue-test/id570887902?mt=8&uo=4

Thanks for your help!!

Welcome Julez, I am glad you found Tudibetes, it has been a huge help/resource for me. I lost 55 lbs. in 5 months whenoriginally diagnosed, I would not worry so much about calories just carbs. I eat every 2-3 hours to keep the hunger at bay and intake enough food to maintain weight. I have gained about 8 lbs back over the last 22 months and can fluctuate 5-6 pounds in two days time. I no longer worry about fat content, I only pay attention to portion size and carb totals. For example I buy 4% cottage cheese not the low fat stuff, this has helped to stabalize my weight. I will give you a piece of advice my doctor gave me, "relax, live a little" oh what a difference this has made:)
Good Luck,
Michael

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
