Hi Guys, -thanks for the greetings and birthday wish. I'm just reading some of my welcome comments now. I have never been in an internet forum or chat before so I'm awkward at best at responding. It has been difficult for my son's first weeks into managing his diabetes. He is highly motivated to making permanent changes in his diet and testing frequently. We thought it would be much easier to get control, so to speak, but there are so many variables to discover such as the insulin to carb ratios, or how many carbs can he handle in his diet without severe sugar spikes. I am so grateful to have found this forum.The years of experience are invaluable, and so many people here are well versed in the latest research and studies which is enormously helpful. Sometimes it takes another mind to spot the good research from the bad. Everyone here has my deepest empathy for the daily struggles in managing their diabetes.
I just wanted to say thank you for all of the wonderful, kind, funny and heartfelt comments. The supportive nature of this community is a welcome change from the average communications section of most web sites. Even having a place to vent, is refreshing. Venting to my two cats, just isn't as satisfying.
