They automatically sense sugar in your blood and produce and release exactly

Afraid to eat eggs because of all the cholesterol? In reality, the cholesterol in eggs is not the real cause of heart attacks:
A long time ago, eggs and other foods containing saturated fat and cholesterol were given a very bad reputation: the cause of a heart attack. In reality, the cholesterol in

Does eating healthier really cost that much more money than eating cheap processed and pre-packed food? This study reveals it doesn't cost as much as you'd think:

Very well written Ginge. I relly like this article. This is one thing that I keep telling people. Each one of us is different and what works for me might or might  not work for them and vice/versa. We are all different individuals.

In a nutshell, the answer is: yes. But for some, the answer can be: no.For most, explains <a href="http://www.integrateddiabetes.com/primeserv.shtml" target="_blank">Gary Scheiner, CDE</a> and author of "<a href="ncreas-Practical-Insulin-Completely/dp/0738215147" target="_blank">Think Like

Just how do I speak to my caregiver? For years she has told me that "you have the best equipment the world has to offer" when I have an insulin pump and meter. Just how many years do I have to see friends with a cgm and hear this junk from my provider without exploding? I thrive on numbers and calculations so I generally just go into a quiet depression till I leave the office where it is once again safe to think and talk to myself because it just isn't safe to talk to the person giving me a lecture.
