Great! This made my day... (it really didn't -I am just being a bit ironic here):
Compared to the general population, people suffering from diabetes have a higher risk of fracturing their hip... To examine the relationship between
diabetes and fractures, researchers at Isfahan University of Medical
Sciences in Iran reviewed a total of 16 studies that included 836,941
adults and 139,531… Continue

I just read this... I can't believe it! I live a mile away from UCF!
"Capsules of insulin produced in genetically modified lettuce could
hold the key to restoring the body's ability to produce insulin and
help millions of Americans who suffer from insulin-dependent diabetes,
according to University of Central Florida biomedical researchers.
Professor Henry Daniell's research team genetically engineered tobacco plants with the insulin gene and then administered freeze-dried… Continue

I know, I know... this is a shameless plug! Plus I know I don't stand a chance (nor should I) against the giants of the diabetes blogosphere (and beloved members of our community), such as Kerri Morrone, Bernard Farrell or Amy Tenderich (one of whom should win the Bloggers Choice… Continue

I can't deny it: when I read the news today, I was kinda excited, so I thought I'd share them with everyone in here.
Johnson & Johnson has launched a campaign starting today, running until November 30, inviting people to win one of 10,000 One Touch Ultra Mini glucose meters (seems to me you have a pretty decent chance to win) AND (drumroll, please!) among the winners (are you ready for this?)
100 of them will be selected at random to each

I was welcoming our newest member this morning (who joins us from Holland) and noticed that he learned about TuDiabetes through an article on Ning.com that was published on the LA Times.
So I googled "LA Times Ning" and what would be my surprise when I found that TuDiabetes.com is mentioned in there:
"Ning, which means "peace" in Chinese, has spawned 86,000 social networks on topics such as TV shows… Continue

Debunking the myths of parenting with diabetes
Kathryn Gregorio Palmer knows diabetes. She has lived with it since age 18. Her husband also has type 1 diabetes and they have two healthy young boys. So, when you read so much about the risks of parenting among diabetics, you can't help but think they may be on to something that all of us diabetics can learn from.
In writing … Continue

I admit it: I have not exercised enough lately. I was sending in my numbers report as part of The OC New Me Challenge
, and my average for the past 4 weeks was 147 (I knew this, because I use SugarStats
, so it wasn't quite a surprise).
Carb intake has been similar. Insulin use has been comparable: so what changed? Besides having worked a LOT in the past month, I have not exercised enough, and boy does it… Continue

Diabetes Educators (AADE) and with support from Bayer Diabetes Care.
I have been a longtime follower of the 7 Habits methodology, so this was… Continue

I got a prescription from my endo for 7 tests a day (I asked for it, it didn't come naturally, I must clarify). I had the pharmacy (I go through Liberty Medical) put the order and the insurance company (United Healthcare) said they could not process more than 4 strips per day for orders served through regular pharmacies -what is wrong with this picture?
I mean, isn't it in their best interest to have me test as often as I can, so as to maintain better control? Why on earth would it… Continue
