TuDiabetes was officially launched March 5, 2007. The rest of 2007 lots of people came to the site, some joined and became members, some didn't. There were lots of great moments to remember.
To give everyone a feel of how the past few months have been around TuDiabetes, I've put together this recap that sumarizes the year's most popular discussions and groups, as well as a breakdown of our members in terms of diabetes type and glucose meter preference.

There are geese flying north already! What's up with that? Crazy birds.
I handed out bread at the pond behind my home and counted carbs.
Sad for me. I still see every food item as a number, even if I'm not the one eating.

The "What They Don't Tell You" web site was getting busy enough that I figured it was time to buy it its own URL, so I did.
The site is still physically located on the web pages with the old address, so all the old links will continue to work, but you can now also reach the site by going to http://www.bloodsugar101.com
The good thing about this is that I'll finally be able to give people the URL in conversation with some chance… Continue

Been a while since I have posted. I have been doing a lot of sleeping. I also quit my job due to my boss getting upset that I was having trouble working a 4 hour shift due to pain. So I quit Thursday. Started physical therapy this week and it was quite painful. I have to do passive range of motion on my own twice a day and go to physical therapy three times a week. Monday I get the stitches out and I am ready for them to be out as my arm itches like crazy.

So - I log on and see that my last blog entry is about Thanksgiving and already Christmas and New Years Day have passed. Christmas is still my number one favorite holiday, despite the pressure, the busyness, the fatigue, the tempting good (but bad ) food -I still love it for what the true meaning is - nothing more than that and getting together with all my family. I did pretty good overall keeping my BG levels in the normal ranges- despite cooking a huge lasagne dinner for 15 people and… Continue

I'm so happy right now.
So proud of myself.
My appointment today was to discuss the results of my blood work that i did in December.
She said my numbers looked really good.
My A1C when I was diagnosed was a 9.9. It went down to 7.6. She said that was pretty good for just a month and that she thinks it will get down to 6 in the next few months. *crosses fingers*
The big thing and what I am most proud of is the weight loss. I have lost a total of 33 pounds… Continue

The dust from the move is starting to settle... and so are we. :)
Finally today, we have internet and phone. This weekend we'll be getting our furniture, so sleeping is still an interesting experience. :D

The past two days have been car maintenance days from hades. The roads here are full of potholes thanks to the nice thaw we been having and yesterday on the way to work we hit a giant crater. Thank the gods it was within walking distance of home because my partner, (we'll call her M) broke a bolt trying to loosen the nuts to put on the spare. Good times. Now mind you we both start work at 4:30am, so it was rainy, and dark and Michigan in January is just cold no matter how thawed… Continue

I had been thinking about/ planning to try a restricted carb diet for the month of February, as an experiment. Then I went to the doctors and found that I've grown about three inches taller during the past year. My weight had been study but I've gained five pounds in the last year. I had not realized that I was still a growing person.
I have a number of major objections to low and restricted carb diets. The biggest one is that they promote weight loss. Especially… Continue

I have been taking glipizide for almost a month. It has helped my bgs a bit but the thing that has me frustrated is that I have gained 10 lbs since then. I am very mad because I was getting very close to a milestone for me. I was a just a couple puonds away from weighing less than 200 lbs. I havent been there in quite a long time. Now it seems like that will never happen. I know I just need to buckle down and get really strict with myself, but I am just frustrated because before the glip I was… Continue

I'll bet that I have gone shopping online for a medical alert bracelet/charm a dozen or two times since diagnosed. I haven't purchased one yet. I do not understand why they are so expensive.
It feels like just one more way that commercial enterprises know they've got folks by the 'short hairs' and just up the prices cause the know we need something (or think we do).
Whether it is fighting with insurance companies over the number of strips they will authorize for a… Continue

I know that it has been a while and unfortunately this must be quick. Things have been busy here. Lots of gatherings and parties over the holidays. We were hosting a least one party a week which was kinda crazy.
In my past few blogs I had mention applying for a CMG and being rejected. I reapplied in late November and was approved incredibly quickly. I have learned that when writing an appeal get into the grit of what is going on. The first time I sent a brief summation of my problems.… Continue

I almost died a few weeks ago.
Yep. This bulletproof 38-year-old husband and father of three just about kicked the bucket.
I didn't see the flash of light.
I didn't see my grandparents or other friends and family waving me to come join them.
I didn't even see myself lying on the bed in the ER or the ICU writhing with pain.
But I almost died.
I've had diabetes for 23 years now. Diagnosed with Type I (which used to be called Juvenile Diabetes)… Continue

It's personal and I'm trying to be a better more positive me so I'm not even going to talk about the incredible crabby me that has inhabited my head for the past few months!

mother was diagnosed with Diabetes in 2000. I knew because it ran in
our family that I would eventually get it, but did not think it would
hit me until I was at least my mothers age.
For most of my teenage and adult life, I have had medical problems. It all started when I… Continue
