I went to the American Diabetes Expo here in Atlanta and it wasn't as good as they made it out to be I was very disapporinated. But it had it good points to I learned a lot ablut reading the food lables and how to understand them they can be very confusing and intimadating.I also learned how to correct to examin my feet.They also had alot of manufactors there from companys like pumps. medicians, food & of course wal-mart.I wish all of u could have went .

Yes, it wasn't what I expected, but perhaps it is due to the economy. The shoes they showed seemed sooo comfortable!

I was there as well and was disappointed. I thought that if I wasn't in the market for a pump I don't know what I would gained. It was my first one. I did have some really good conversations with some companies though. Glad to know that I wasn't the only one who felt that way.
