It's interesting and encouraging to see that new technologies are continually being evolved to make a Diabetic's Life easier, diagnosis sooner so less chance of complications, until "The Day Of The Cure!!"

Hey Peter:

Good Morning! Where have you been hidding?? I looked under every rock.... LOL! Just Kidding Peter. What have you been up to young Lad??

Actually, those 2 articles were about new ways to check if someone has Diabetes or are on their way to getting it so that they can prepare for it and be looked after as soon as they are dxd. Instead of walking around with Diabetes for years(Type 2's) as many do and end up having damage done to their bodies. As you know, Type 1's don't usually walk around too long with Diabetes without getting some symptoms.

No, I'm not bubbly today(actually, I've never thought of myself as bubbly). My Hubby is on another week's vacation.....here.....at home. .......HA!!! j/k. I don't care. As long as he stays in his room.

Did you see my Baby picture Peter??? Go look........and say something NICE. Then feel free to put a pic of yourself up.


Oh Good........now the rabbit is throwing things again. Pardon Moi.

Yeah As I was diagnosed late and I was whey too thin. With this we can get the treatment sooner and keep the complications away.

Aww Terrie, I am sorry. Please find time for yourself and sniff the roses as being a D is bad enough and I would dearly love to see another ballet but there is so many modern works and not enough classics.

Yes, that was Very unfortunate for you Peter. That happens to so many Children and they sometimes end up in a Coma and even die before their illness is discovered....even today.

It's not a link Peter. It is at the bottom in the *Other Subjects* section. The thread is called *Photo Gallery*.
