Hope everyone had a great World Diabetes Day (WDD) yesterday!  I tried to do the Twitter #dayofdiabetes but ended up slacking towards the end of the day as I went out to eat.  Luckily, it was a pretty quiet day and my blood sugars didn’t get too crazy, other than climbing up to 230 after […]

Happy World Diabetes Day! I must admit that I had no idea that today is World Diabetes Day.  Thanks to following the JDRF on Twitter and Facebook, I became aware of today’s importance.  I also had no idea why today was chosen as World Diabetes Day.  Apparently, it is because Frederick Banting was born on […]
