"Great post! You really made some enlightening points, and being a junkie for new technology I completely agree with you on minimizing devises as well as the redundancies of entering in information!"

"Sidetrack here. Have you tried using a Google Spreadsheet for tracking? Similar to Excel but you can then access it anywhere and your doctor can access it online (if they have a computer there) instead of printing it and taking it in."

Welcome home Mikey....fellow Ontarian!!
Take a peek at some the other groups when you get a chance. Take in some of the blogs/discussions and take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well, by going to the headings in the aqua coloured box in the upper left hand of the home page. Click on "DHF Grassroots". Once you're in scroll down, click on "Canada embassy", and voilà! The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
