"When I was originally diagnosed in 1994 I was told I could no longer give blood. The they changed it so that I could. I can't now because of other meds I take. I didn't even realize they had put a ban on pp who used beef or pork. I guess…"

Hi Christina,

I'm not very active in the group(not due to any reason other than I have a wacky schedule at home!), but I live in Northern NJ. I am a Type 1 for the past 39 years. You can contact me anytime you like! Welcome to the group!

Welcome to the TuDiabetes family, Christina!

Here are a few tips on how to make the most of the site. I invite you check out the different groups we have: there's an excellent chance you will find more than a few that you can identify with.

If you find the community useful, I'd be honored if you could link to us on your blog/site if you have one (maybe sending a bulletin to your MySpace friends) or invite family, friends, colleagues and anyone whom you feel may benefit from it.

Also, if you know of any local newspapers, TV or radio stations that you feel could be interested in writing about our community, please let them know about our recent Press Release, announcing the community: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2007/8/prweb546849.htm

Last, if you run into Spanish-only speaking folks, please let them know about EsTuDiabetes.com, our sister Spanish-speaking community.
