I had a great meeting with "Kate" today. She was familiar with the SP site and was happy I brought several days' logs to give her a glimpse into my menus. I also printed out a cardio report. She was impressed and said I'm doing all of the right ... Read more

I visited the Diabetes Center about 4 years ago after my initial diagnosis. At the time, I didn't find it that helpful, although they were very nice and offered to answer questions. Since I've been "dieting" most of my life, mostly WW, I knew mo... Read more
