Which Don To Respect?
Remember how I used to occasionally reference the “Don of Rage Bolusing?”  You know, that was mostly a term of endearment for my insulin pump.

Manipulating My A1C and Looking Beyond That Number
As my endo read through the medical chart at a recent appointment, I sat there anxiously waiting for him to tell me my latest A1C. He scanned the notes and rattled off bits of information about prescriptions, before getting to the meat and potatoes (so to speak) of our visit.  If you were a… Read More
