With daily roaming blood sugars, we diabetics need to remember brushing twice daily and flossing in the evening. We all have extra glucose that sits on our teeth daily.

Final weight goal of 140 pounds & maintain my fitness with excellent blood sugar management.

A good read--
Google embarks on smart contact lenses for diabetics

What if people with diabetes didn't have to prick their fingers several times a day to conduct blood sugar tests -- but instead could simply wear contacts?

I learned to recognize the signs of hypoglycemia the hard way. I woke with a blood sugar of 57 and the shakes. Easily remedied.

I just learned that dental disease is as closely tied to diabetes as to heart disease.

I have been looking at the sugar content in food for over a year. I still am amazed at how much sugar is in the standard American diet (sad)

I am new here. I have tried for a while to lose my weight but have not succeed yet. I have realized that I am a stress eater. I have a lot of stress in my life on a daily basis so it is going to be hard for me to lose the weight. I just really hope that I can do it. One for the diabetes, two for the pain in my body, three for my family.
Thanks

Because of my 4 year old I have to be the best I can be.
One of my ways of being the best is get my sugar down by trimming down.

It feels kind of odd to be done with this challenge and still have a little way to go. I still need to lose about 8 pounds. Anybody know another challenge that would be good for that?

Have you seen the bedtime calculator that says waking in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired & groggy, but waking up in between cycles lets you wake up feeling refreshed & alert! sleepyti.me/

I have had extensive dental work since being diagnosed with pre-diabetes, I was diagnosed in October of 2010 and as of this morning I have dropped 105 LBS. And now have a partial, instead of bad teeth. The great news is that my blood work came back completely normal for the very first time, so I know first hand all the talk is true! You will see a big difference just with the teeth cleanings.

It warms my heart to hike with my husband on a very cold day!
Yesterday I climbed Mt. Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH. It was 20 degrees at the bottom, and colder at the summit. The wind was blowing, but we kept moving. We swet like crazy all the way up. Did you know that swet is just your fat cells crying? Cry me a river, fat. I want you so unhappy that you leave me once and for all.

I went to my dentist today. Actually my periodontist. I knew I had gingivitis and have to have a scaling to remove all the plaque. My Dr. told me that diabetes and gum disease go hand in hand. They don't know which came first but usually diabetics that do not have routine dental exams and don't take care of their teeth and gums will have gingivitis and eventually periodontal disease. She told me that in her experience her patients have almost immediate and noticeable decrease in glucose levels if you need to have the cleaning. I'm having half my mouth done next week and the other one week later. I am very interested to see if there will be a noticeable difference. Anyone else have this happen to them?
