Dear Manny, the BLUE ROSE DIABETES FOUNDATION, would like to know how many players in the WORLD CUP, have diabetes? BLUE ROSE DIABETES FOUNDATION would like to let them know we support their efforts and let ANYTHING or ANYBODY, stop them from being ROLE models.Since TORONTO is the mecca for ALL INSULIN-USERS, we feel anyone coming here, should see the LAB where INSULIN was discovered, and if enough interest is there, show them the HOMESTEAD in ALLISTON that is a 100 acres being transformed into a diabetic camp for children.

Thanks for the friend request. Haven't checked into this site in a long time. Doing well overall. Gone from 9 a1c at dx (3 years ago) to 5.2 now. I only test now occasionally to keep an eye on things or when I'm not sure of what I just ate!

ok, I just went through my entire friend list and sent a personal message to every one from NJ to participate in TuAnalyze! If we don't light up our state this weekend, I'm going to be very disappointed.

I may have found the problem. In my e-mail settings the Anyone joins Tudiabetes block was not checked. How it got unchecked I will never know but that should take care if it. Sorry to bother you. Thanks

Hope your doing "better" now Manny. I didn't know about your being sick. Sorry but just read your tweet and was surprised.

Hey Manny, great article on dLife! @rpederse sent it to me today.
I don't know if you know much about my story, but I was diagnosed with Type 2 in June 2009 and really struggled. The oral meds, diet and exercise worked for about 2-3 months and then I couldn't get below my BG down below 250 no matter what I did. One night worked out for 4 hours trying to get my BG down and it ended up rising to over 400!
I am SO grateful for my friends in the DOC for saving my life. They had gotten to know me and what I was going thru and had taught me about LADA. I was trying to get with an Endo, but there were 4 mos. waiting periods. A friend on twitter was able to get me in with his diabetes clinic and I was quickly diagnosed with LADA. I went on insulin right away and saw a remarkable difference immediately! I have now been on a pump for a month or so and I can't believe the difference it has made in my life!
Thanks for sharing your story. It helps the rest of us out here feel that we're not alone. You've really done a great job in bringing people together and encouraging a spirit of community.

Hi Manny, I'm on your Tu Diabetes site too, but this is in reference to the dLife subject, LADA. When I was first diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, the doc put me in touch with a trial-study clinic that was testing a new medication for CKD (there IS no medication presently). I went through a vigorous testing, and one os the main issues was if I had T1 or T2 diabetes. I was 31 when diagnosed but went on insulin immediately. That was 37 years ago, and this is the first time I have heard the term LADA. It's rather confusing and mind-boggling!!
By the way, I was turned down because my heart rate is too slow!!!

Cheers, Margaret

Manny, here's another resource for the uninsured: Eye Care America. They help you get a free eye exam if you have Diabetes, and no insurance, or a history of glaucoma, etc. I qualified, and they're going to get me in touch with a volunteer ophthalmologist in my area, and it's free of charge. :)
