Tattoo

Hi. I am considering a tattoo: "diabetic 1" on my wrist. Any ideas? My Medical bracelet broke again. 35 years of being a diabetic, stopped counting how many bracelets I have lost. Decided that is it, I want a tattoo!!!

Hba1c

Hi. Just want to share with you all. In Oct 2009 my hba1c was 7.9%. Got latest results today and it is 6.1%!! I am very happy. Low carbing works!! Being a type 1 diabetic for 34 years this has been my best hba1c ever!! I follow Dr Bernstein's low carbing as much as I can. In 3 months time (April) my goal is a hba1c of 5.5%!!
Kind Regards
