Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

Big Blue Test

 WEGO Health NHBPM prompt: Day 3: “I don’t know about this, but I’d like to.”

Are you doing the Big Blue Test this year?   Test, get active, test again, and report your numbers- that's all there is to it.  

You don't have to be diabetic to participate in this.   I don't know how exercise affects MY blood sugar... I'm not diabetic... but I'm interested to see the affect it has.  I think I'll have Rosie and I both do the Big Blue Test in the coming week when we're at the YMCA.

If 20,000 tests are logged, then $100,000 will be donated to diabetes organizations to provide supplies and services to people in need.   How cool is that?
I'm posting daily in November in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month and the WEGO Health's National Health Blog Post Month. #NHBPM

Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
