So I had drawn a quick chart just to compare what your blood sugars do while you’re sick, and while you’re normal. From 10am yesterday until about 2pm my body was still fighting something. I can see this through the numbers. Despite feeling better, my insulin ratios were off, for not having had any food….

Got out of the hospital last night for DKA (Diabetic Ketone Acidosis) running a little slow today. It was brought on most likely from a virus. This goes to show you don’t have to have bad blood sugars for things to get out of control. As a matter of fact my A1C hemoglobin is down…

Shared from the Denver Post. Had never though of dog sensing sugar levels biased upon smell. Interesting read. I can’t have a dog at the moment, because of my job. If I had a person I was helping care for, who had a hard time monitoring sugars, I would think about something like this. People…

What does insulin cost around the world? I have been without insurance before, and had to have paid $80-$120 for a single vile of insulin. I am fortunate to have insurance right now. Without it, a two weeks supply of medicine would cost a little over $1,200. What does it cost if you live somewhere…

While I was in Aspen this last summer, I was invited to attend a talk about the cure for type one. I waited until the end after everyone else asked questions, and I took a chance to ask mine. “What can type one diabetics do to help make finding the cure faster?” The Answer is…

Remember how effective having a support system is. If you know someone with diabetes, sometimes reminding them to take a second can be helpful, lifesaving, and will be appreciated. It’s frustrating to do these things, for diabetics, so be mindful of their individual situation. But it’s important. If you have diabetes make sure to do…

Hello everyone! A reminder to have a slow day to take care of your body, and monitor your health. That’s what I’m doing today, after a great weekend of work. Watch your blood sugars closely, drink plenty of water, and get good sleep. Sounds easy enough right! I managed to get 2/3. Someone always wants…

Hello everyone! I’m still working on this habit myself but try to create healthy food items to control your blood sugar. I made some of these up the other night. I was thinking this would be a great item to have in the fridge for low blood sugars.  Often times I’ll make the mistake of…
