Today's post is Diabetesalicious lite but diabetesaliciousness non the less~
Yours truly wrote a post over at at Health Central called: Diabetes or Not, Friends Look Out For Each Other. Stop on over and leave a comment (if you feel so inclined,) letting me know if you can relate!
File this in the "This is just plain ridiculous not to mention unhealthy" file. Donna Simpson of New Jersey wanted to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds fattest woman. Her current weight is 600 lbs and her target weight is 1000 lbs. I fell sorry for this woman and her family on so many levels. I hope that she gets the mental and physical help she needs so she can live to see her daughter grow up.
Yesterday's post, "Meters = Diabetes GPS System," was all about meter accuracy. Scott Strumello wrote an excellent and more detailed piece on the subject last night.
Bennet broached the subject at the beginning of the week and Kerri wrote a fantastic post this morning. Please check them out!
Want the FDA to know your thoughts? @BernardF tweeted a link to an FDA Document regarding blood sugar meter accuracy.They link takes you to both the document and a link requesting you to leave comments on the subject.
I have no doubt that the diabetes on-line community will set the FDA straight! Click HERE and leave let em know what you think!!!
Speaking of weighty issues, meter accuracy, and bolus worthy issues, today is National Chocolate Caramel Day- I kid you not, it really is. Go out and have a chocolate caramel or two- just be sure to test, bolus, & floss!
