D365 Day 11

Two Things.

There are two things that can upset me in the morning.

1. An unexpected high blood sugar.
2. An bad espresso shot.

Happily I solved the past week's espresso problem. It was simply a
case of badly ground beans.

If only the unexplained highs were so easy to fix.

D365 Day 10


Stopped into Starbucks on our way home from dinner to pick up some coffee beans.

A. asks me, "Want a hot chocolate?"
A quick check of the Dex gives me my answer.

I really like D technology.

D365 Day 7


I tend to eat very healthy well balanced meals. Also - over the past six months I have been eating 90% local foods.

I got home on Friday - and realized that the only local food I had in the house were potatoes, onions, and a single green pepper. Luckily I had a canned some tomatoes early this fall - and was able to throw together this very carbs heavy dinner.

I called the dish 9.6 after the units of insulin I had to take to cover it. It is going to be a long carb heavy root vegetable based winter!

I love my diabetes testing kit.

I find them at Kate Spade. This is my third one.

D365 Day 5


Health Disparities. It is an issue that my boss works on. I'm luckily that I get the opportunity to occasionally help others with diabetes get the help they need.

The article can be found here
The sentence read “grants will, for example, allow Worcester's health department to open an office of healthcare equity, pay for a mobile information van that helps consumers better understand the complexities of doctor's recommendations, and develop methods for better educating patients about diabetes.”
