Good work, good on you for pursuing it!

In addition to the pain and disruption you mention, I would bet the single greatest obstacle to adequate blood glucose self-monitoring by diabetics is the stinginess of at least public insurance systems, which dole out test strips at the rate of one a day. For all the reasons you outline, this is a criminal restriction.
You’ve probably heard that diabetes is a huge and growing problem—affecting one in every 19 people on the planet. But you may not be familiar with the daily struggle that many people with diabetes face as they try to keep the...

Hmmm. G+ is rolling out vanity URLs to civilians. I wonder if they invited me because I registered (months ago) as an "author."
