Could someone kindly advise me as to how to convert the US blood glucose readings to UK ones. I am sure there is a table here somewhere, I would be grateful is someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks
He is the article.
Shaving has always been the bain of my life not the process of shaving cutting yourself but the soreness afterwards I noticed that after getting diabetes my face became more sore no this is not a scientific observation just my own experience so do not quote me on that,I have tried all brands of after shave soothing balm baby lotion you name it during my forty six or so years putting blade to skin I did not find anything that really helped, I believed the garb spawned by shaving companies…Continue
This whole week was of highs and lows. Its been nearly two years now that Danielle was diagnose as type 1 diabetes, five months prior to the diagnose she fell from a horse while doing lessons. The got a fright and she just fell off. Luckely she didn,t brake anything.
But she's not doing so well mentally coping with diabetes. Me as her mother are trying everyting I possibly can to stay 100% on track, but the problem is when she goes to school. She get snacks and fruit, I stay…Continue
Hate it when you have typed a blog and the computer decides to scrub it, and you have to start all over again thank heaven for the anti depression pills, I had poured out my soul deep kept secrets which would have shocked you, made life intolerable for some people and changed the World forever,on the other hand it might have sent people to sleep.
One of our more enduring traits as a nation is talking about the weather why well that is easy you never know from one day to the next what…Continue

12/8/10: Just received word that both kids tested negative for the insulin antibodies! This is such good news and I am so happy, it makes me realize how different results would have really darkened my holiday spirit and possibly led to years of anxiety and guilt. I'm going to celebrate. The kids may not quite understand why, but they will!
I took my 8-yo daughter and 5-yo son in to a local research hospital for a blood draw as part of the TrialNet study. I…Continue
Everything is going so well, of course I've had a few bad days, 4 bad in total since I heard I'm carrieing a bambino'. My doc says I am doing great though, except for yesterday.
I found out my grandfather is in the hospital, minor heart attack, hes doing fine but because of the hormones and stress level, yesterday was one of those bad days, sugars persistantly stayed low, then elevated to safe levels then went low again, so in total 3 panic attacks in one hour and I over…Continue
My last triathlon of the season was the PPD Beach2Battleship half-iron distance tri in Wrightsville Beach/Wilmington, NC. I had traveled into Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach a day early and had a house right on the beach...It is beautiful there! I will say that logistically it is not not the best race (expensive bike fees because you can only fly Delta or US Air; it's a point to point race, so it has two…Continue
Here I sit, trying to come up with some higher purpose, some totally wise words, getting all philosophical and metaphysical on the diabetes tip, and maybe I should just be practical and tell people about my experience. About how to go in the backcountry with insulin and the whole kit and caboodle. What works for me. Ok, yeah, that’s what this post is about.…Continue

All come all ye faithful, the scene outside with every where covered in frost is real Christmassy just footprints of a cat otherwise you could be forgiven there are thousands of souls living near by, smudge ventured out but within 10 minutes was meowing and scratching the back door to come back in, she now wants petting and feeding in and out of my legs leading me to her cupboard where she knows breakfast is kept, OK smudge what do you fancy this morning chicken in gravy tuna or lamb with…Continue
I spent last Friday and Saturday with a group of amazing women who came together to recharge.
We met at a Conference Center near my home here in Connecticut where my husband Vinnie and I have done reupholstery and drapery work. Led by Dr. Cynthia Barnett, the retreat's focus was getting Re-Fired -Re-Charged - Re-Juvenated. On Friday afternoon the entire group focused on assessing our individual health and…
Sitting here my body sweating all over sun shinning outside but my legs and feet still felling cold
I have had to take of my cardigan the sweat is boiling out of me so hot I could boil a kettle on my knee
Late with insulin today had it with dinner perhaps that is why buckets of sweat is pouring out of me
My computer seat is red hot in sympathy with me wish my feet did the same how happy I would be
The day rolls on and soon it will be gone and jack frost could…Continue

Once more into the breach insulin pen in hand needle ready to pierce my finger on the side seems less painful less nerve ending there I read once why I do not just go ahead and jab myself is the question diddle daddle waiting for the right moment is fast becoming a habit with me, less face it as the nurse tells me it is just a little prick sometimes it is other times it hurts a lot, mom would have said you little cry baby, but needles and me really do not mix.
Recovering from my heart…Continue

First off HELLO TuD friends. I haven't been on here since August 2009!! I feel terrible. How is everyone doing?
Okay so I am approaching the age of legal drinking. I can be honest I have drank before but I never did it responsibly. I would ignore what my sugar levels were doing and just did what I wanted. Well for the past year now I have been keeping my levels great and I haven't allowed myself to slip up at all. And since…Continue
